Today, I made my second, well actually third trip to the Social Security Office and this is what I was told:
We cannot issue you a Social Security Card at this time because:
The Department of Homeland Security is unable to verify the immigrant document you submitted as evidence of your lawful alien status. You should contact that agency to clarify your current immigration status.
Ok, they were called and still nothing. Now a formal "investigation" is going to take place, which could take 6-12 weeks!! Really??????? How can they not be able to verify the document they sent me??? You would think that this would be the easy part. I mean, I spent a lot of money getting FBI fingerprints and waiting on immigration approval, before I even left for China to pick Clara up.
I just don't know what to think about all of this. At the present time, I am unable to even enroll Clara in school, because she doesn't have a USA birth certificate or SS number. I was having trouble deciding if I was going to enroll her in school or not and now the decision has been made for me. I was going to have her get her therapies at the school, but now we are going to go private. I am hoping getting her state issued birth certificate will be easier. Only time will tell.
