Husband arrived in this country with a tourist visa in 1988, went to school and is a professional in the healthcare industry. Married for 4 years to a citizen wife, husband is only one working since wife goes to school full-time. The application process assumes the opposite: citizen wife petitions husband where wife works and assumes financial responsability for the husband. So the application is difficult to complete. Also the husband has a valid social security card and driver license and a job. Will filling the application cause any problems with his employer? Employer assumes husband is a citizen. Can they file considering wife is unemployed? Husband drivers license expires in 4 months and DMV requires proof of residency. Will he be able to renew it in time? Will working and having a social security card and DL bring any issues during the application process? Thank you.
I'm happy to answer your question. If there is a delay, please be patient, as I am likely working with other customers as well.Is husband working legally? How did husband qualify for the social security card? Did husband tell employer that he is a US citizen?
The employer assumes he's a citizen, he looks and speaks like a born citizen, SS card is legal, I assume 20 some years ago the process to obtain a card was easier.
I need to know what process he used to get a social security card? These are and never were just handed out. There must be a basis. Was he ever on a student visa in order to go to school? Also, when he was hired, he filled out paperwork, which certainly asked either for proof of Citizenship or other lawful immigrant status.
SS card as a student. For citizens, employers don't require passport or birth certificate, just drivers license, ss card and educational credentials.
