  • Update - EAD and SS#

    Hi guys,

    Picked up my EAD at BCIS office today, only took about an hour (mostly waiting), got my EAD card within 15 minutes and went straight to nearest SS Office to register my SS#. Took me only 20 minutes there and the lady said I will get my SS Card within 10 days. Very pleasant process

    Now is the time for job hunting! Woo hoo!

    My special thanks to Umesh,Sammy and others who always give the answer when I need it.

    Have a nice day.

        Congratulations.

        You were very lucky to have it all wrapped so quickly. Which State do you live? Or which local BCIS office did you go for your EAD?

        Good luck in your job hunting, and always be positive in the life. As long you have will and strong determination, you will always succeed in your life. Best of all.

          Great news Me2. My wife finally received her SSC and last week her drivers license. And just yesterday we received her letter for her AOS interview. We are to appear at the Newark local office in one month for the interview. We have photos, cards from friends and relatives, utillity bills, insurance policy, state certified marriage license, as well as all other IDs. We now have to get affidavits from friends and family but I was wondering is their a form I can download for this, or just type something up myself and have them get it notarized. Just a little history. We married in November of 2002, filed 485, 130, and EAD in Dec. 2002. FP in JAN 2003, EAD in Feb 2003, SSC JULY 2003, and letter for AOS interview for August of 2003. Having read some posts here, 9 months is not that bad. Anyone here had AOS at Newark office have any comments?

            Hi guys,

            So far I am really glad that everything turned out easily for me . But let me tell you, it won't be easy without CAREFUL preparation, lots of reading and asking (this is where ppl like you guys really helpful .

            Thanks Umesh, thats what I'm doing...surfing all over job websites! Yesterday I faxed and emailed about 20 companies. Today I will do just about the same. By a week may be 100 companies have my resume Hope few of it will hit!

            Krys,

            Why you need affidavits for marriage? Do they asked that in your interview letter? So far, as long as you have enough evidence that you guys live together, it won't be necessary to have that. But I don't know if BCIS specifically asked you about the affidavits. I never seen any marriage affidavits before, so I cannot tell how its prepared. Hope someone else can verify it.

            Make sure you organize your paperwork nicely, this will help the interviewer to speed your interview. Bring two folders, one original and one photocopy, in case the interviewer want to keep it in her file. To locate your documents easily, put the tab or index flag for both files (original and copies). So when the interviewer ask for specific document, you just can flip at the index and boom! Thats it

            To Sammy, I filed my application at Vermont SC and transferred to Baltimore, the details as follows:-

            5/27/03 - Submit AOS package
            5/28/03 - RD
            6/11/03 - ND
            6/13/03 - 1st NOA
            6/20/03 - Transfer to Baltimore
            6/26/03 - 2nd NOA
            7/14/03 - FP Notice
            7/16/03 - FP done
            7/18/03 - EAD approved
            7/30/03 - Pick up EAD card at Baltimore Office
            7/30/03 - Register SS#

                  Me2, in our AOS interview letter there is a list of items to bring with us. next to each item was a box that was either checked or not checked off. the box next to proof of living together was not checked. To me this means that we do not want proof that you are married. I dont understand that. Me2 what does your letter say? Has anyone else had the same letter?

                        Thanks Me2. I will bring everything and photocopies as well.

                        Josephine, have you heard anything yet? The last I remember your interview went well but they did not tell you if husband was approved or not.

                            LOL, now probably you are freaking out about it. Be cool, dreams don't mean squat... at least to me, if the dream is testifying to the Lord, then it is a vision, or a message from the Lord, all others are nothing, but subconscious... You might have fears of denial in the back of your mind, you are not aware of 'em yet... Let go...
