  1. Good morning all, Hope you are all well! I have a few questions that I cannot find concrete info. for. 1) My fiancée and I got married within the 90 day period. However, we did not apply for a social security number due to covid and since then, her i-94 has expired. What are our options now in order to get her a social security number which we need for various reasons (I assume it will be one that says "not valid for employment" which is fine.) Is there a way to get her a new i-94 or an extension at our USCIS office? 2) We have filed her AOS for the Greencard, but she would like to work in the meantime. Would it make sense to file the i-765 for employment? I did some research and some places mention that by the time she gets her work authorization permit, her Greencard will be approved. Is this true? 3) In some forms, it asks what her current immigration status is. She initially entered on a K1, but since we are now married, what would her status be? Do I still put K1 or do I put AOS - adjustment of status? Thanks in advance. Cheers!
  2. Hello, My husband arrived on a K-1 visa in April - we are currently trying to complete his adjustment of status paperwork. After arriving in the USA, we applied for a SS# - getting an appointment was delayed because of COVID and his application was submitted May 12th. I called this morning and his SS# application is still in administrative processing and it has been for 4 weeks now. Can we go ahead and submit his adjustment of status and EAD (I785) paperwork with a pending SS#? He will have been in the USA 2 months this week. Thank you!
  3. In September 2020 I sent out all my AOS documents to change my K1 status. I also applied for an EAD and AP and requested a SSN through the USCIS. The original plan was to apply for a SSN 2 weeks after my arrival in the US on 02/27/2020, but then COVID happened and all offices were shut down. It's been quite some time now and so far there's no progress in my case. By now I'd love to up open a bank account, start working on my credit, get my drivers license and pay taxes together with my husband. So here is my question: can I apply for a SSN locally so I can get it faster or do I have to wait for the USCIS to provide me a SSN since I already applied for it with them. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hello, good people! We were about to file AoS for my wife back in early February but turns out only a computerized birth certificate is allowed from her country to file for any immigration visas. This delayed our process long enough for the new i-944 requirements to take effect, and then lockdowns happened across the world, and now here we are trying to decipher what is acceptable. I hope y'all will be able to answer some questions/doubts. New to all this and appreciate any insight. Quick info about her (beneficiary): - graduated med school in her country in 2019 (never been employed) - studying to take medical licensing exams here, which have been delayed due to Covid-19 - has visited the US in 2019 to do two clinical electives - has a valid B1/B2 visa that expires mid-2021, but just entered the "overstay" category in June 2020 - no SSN or ITIN - no name on any lease/car insurance/utility bill - no credit card or credit score - unfortunately, we also did not renew her travel insurance which expired in March Quick info about me (USC): - make between $40k - $50k at a non-profit (above 125% FPG in 2019 Tax Return, and above 250% in the new career in 2020) - bachelor's degree - less than $25k student loans, $6k credit card debt - no health insurance (employer-offered plan was too expensive). Marketplace will not open till November ☹️ - credit score: good (700+) Questions: Is it possible to add her to anything (lease/bank account/utility bill/credit card) without having SSN or ITIN? Have any of y'all had success with getting a "no credit score report" without SSN/ITIN? Should I get private health insurance for both of us ASAP? Will $6k credit card debt and a not-so-great checking account be a negative factor? Would I have to show a healthy bank account and hence get financial deposit help from my family till the green card is approved? Is switching jobs seen as negative? If I find a better employment opportunity, should I jump on it or would it be seen as unstable? Is there any advantage to filing the forms concurrently versus sending them at different times? Will I-131 (Advance Parole) add an extra $575, and I-765 (Employment Authorization) add an extra $410 to the cost of Adjustment of Status application? If she has given the TOEFL in 2012 and all her education has been where official language of instruction is English, does she need to still prove her English proficiency? Do we need to get her British-education high school diploma and Asian-education medical school degree evaluated? P.S if anyone knows a company in Texas that does not take away half my income in private health insurance, please recommend! 😅
  5. Anybody has any idea when will the social security offices open again for public. I have to apply my ssn but unable to do so.
  6. Hey guys I arrived in the US two weeks ago. I paid my green card fee last week. I called SSN office in columbus to ask them if I could apply for SSN. They told me that SSN offices were closed for public. Just want to confirm from you guys if it is a correct information. Can I apply for SSN online? Or i will have to wait for the offices to open? Thanks for adavance.
