hmnguyen14 posted a topic in Adjustment of Status (Green Card) from K1 and K3 Family Based VisasHelp, My wife came here on a k-1 visa and we applied for her green card shortly after getting married in the US. A couple of months after that we got in a financial pickle and my wife decided to look for jobs. She had received an SSN after we got married and we thought that she could get a job with that while we waited for her EAD (been 200+days and still waiting for that) and her green card. Long story short she got a job at the chiropractic office and everything was fine for 6 months. Just last month I stumbled upon a rule stating she technically isn't allowed to work with her type of SSN. We are freaking out because we are near the end of the green card process and most likely have an interview coming up. She quit her job as soon as we realized what she was doing was unlawful, but I fear that she had the job for much too long and that her green card application could be denied. Is there anything I can do?
Camila Aquino posted a topic in Adjustment of Status from Work, Student, & Tourist VisasI entered the US as an au pair 2.5y ago. I may have overstayed my visit for 180 days, although I'm not sure, but that's another story. After I stopped being an au pair, I moved in with my boyfriend (who's a US citizen) in Feb and we got married in Apr. After I moved in, however, I got a job at a local grocery store for 2-3 months to gather money for rent and my green card application. I filed some official forms there (like the W-9), but I didn't use any SSN for any of that, only my name and address, and my paychecks were only in check form, never deposited in my account. Nowadays, I just do some odd jobs around town (walking dogs, delivery, etc), so nothing so official. My question is: should I disclose that I worked there on my I-485 form, since I didn't even use my SSN? Could my GC get denied because I worked? Or because I didn't disclose?
