  1. We are currently waiting for our AOS interview, adjusting from K1 visa. My wife just went to the California DMV and tried to take her written permit test. They turned her away because the name on the social security card is not the same as the name on her marriage certificate. She didn’t update her name, after our marriage, with the Social Security Administration. I don’t know how we go about doing this. She really needs to drive soon. She has her EAD. If she gets her name updated and has a replacement card ordered, will it still say on that card that she isn’t allowed to work now that she has her EAD? I was told by visajourneyers a while ago to wait until we have the green card to request a new card with her updated name so I’m very confused. Thanks
  2. Good afternoon, I just wanted to fill you guys in on my experience renewing my MO drivers license today. I filed for EAD/AP/AOS early November and it's still pending. I took my US MO Drivers test in November using my I-94, Passport and K-1 Visa page but my license was only valid for the length of the I-94 document. Of course this expired a little while ago, and I have been unable to drive. So my wife emailed the DMV requesting information as to whether or not we'd be able to renew my license for the time being. There is very little information out there in this. I have included the e-mail below. I walked into the DMV today, and brought the following documents with me: Marriage Certificate Passport AOS Receipt (With stamped biometrics) EAD Receipt (The DMV scanned this document) Utility Bill (Something with my name on it tying me to the address I live) It took her a few tries of various numbers on the EAD receipt but it was approved for renewal of my DL. The process took about 10 minutes once I was at the desk. So those of you wondering about drivers licenses, e-mail the DMV and ask about your state's laws regarding it. Remember: Not all DMV staff are competent. I hope this helps someone out there!
  3. UPDATING DRIVERS LICENSE RECORDS at the DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES AFTER NATURALIZATION NB: This might be state-dependent. (I am in Florida.) Updated SSA Via US Mail - No Issues! Updated SSA via mail earlier this year. Was quick & easy. Mailed the passport (not naturalization certificate) with the required form, and within 3 days got the passport back, and within a few weeks got the new and updated Social Security Card (same SSN, of course, but with an updated issue date on it.) DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) Have heard that updating the drivers license was also a step to do after citizenship. Spoke with several DMV agents over the subsequent months, and heard conflicting stories, including - 1) "Yes, you should come in and update your record at DMV once SSA has updated their database." and 2) "No, there is no real need to come in to update your DMV record if there is no name or address change." Spoke with a Sheriff while waiting on the COVID Vaccine Shot line, today, and - 1) He looked at my drivers license and said that there was nothing on the physical license indicating that I was NOT a citizen. 2) He said, "Their electronic database system would normally have a notation indicating if a person is NOT a citizen." 3) He typed my drivers license into his console and said, "The Florida DMV database does NOT have a notation indicating that I was a non-citizen". 4) He said, "Since there is no notation on my DMV record that I am NOT a citizen, there is no need to go to DMV to update my record on their system." This occurred today, April 9th, 2021.
  4. Hi Guys Im new to this and desperate for some advice. I'm in need of help, I tried to get my driving permit last year and said they couldn't verify my immigration status. (I was on 1 year J1 visa). This year I finally got my EAD through Adjustment of Status. I was confident that there wouldn't be any issued in the RMV (MA) because of this, brought plenty of documents to prove my legal status etc. They gave me the same thing where I got a case in SAVE, they couldn't tell me anymore information on this but they just gave me a case number. But the thing is, the same situation happened last year and nothing happened, I never got a response or mail so I just gave up and decided to wait on my EAD or GC. I checked my SAVE status and says "SAVE has returned your case to Massachusetts - Department of Transportation, Registry of Motor Vehicles Division" and that I should check back with the RMV. This status was shown on the SAVE website on the same day I went to the RMV (MA). have tried contacting USCIS, and directed me back to a SAVE number which directed my call back to USCIS and the RMV cannot me reached. RMV is taking so long to make appointments right now because of Covid and the lines are very very long. I'm afraid I am going to be on loop again and won't be able to get anything done.
  5. Hi, I have already submitted my AOS together with EAD and AP application, And i already have my EAD card on hand.. I received it about a month ago.. I recently went to DMV to finally get a DL, only to find out that they Can't help me right now because they can't verify my EAD with Uscis/SAVE, And they said to wait for a call before I come back.. They couldn't explain it further and I just had to go home guessing what Could have gone wrong.. I already have my SS and EAD both with the same Name -- my married name.. I can't think of anything else that could deter my Driver's License application.. Has anyone had any experience like this with the DMV? I am from NJ and went to Bayonne DMV
  6. I'm planning to apply for REAL/State ID once DMV is back to serving more appointments soon. I am adjusting from K-1 and I've already received my AOS NOA1 back in May 2020. I already have a SSN with my maiden name, I applied before I got married. Due to COVID-19 and Social Security offices closing, I didn't get the chance to change it to my married name and my I-94 is already expired. Has anyone successfully applied for State ID in California with their names not matching in their Social Security card/database?
