  • H4 to H1B - SSN Delay..Req Advice!!!


    My wife came to US 7 months ago in H4 and recently got a job with H1B sponsorship. She is currently working but the issue is she applied for her SSN in Nov2010 and still waiting for the SSN. She tried the SSA office where she applied multiple times and their answer"INS still has the case pending". Iy looks like her H4 to H1B status is still not updated in the homeland database which is not letting the SSA office to offer an SSN. Is there any other way to approach this issue. It has taken close to 3 months just for an SSn and usually it should not take this long..Anybody who has been in my shoe or any knowledge about this please advice..

    Any help is appreciated!!

        Is there a mismatch in the name from the H1b petition and the passport/I-94?

        I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.
