I'm married to USC and we waiting for our interview ,was wondering can I seek employment without having the work permit ? I haven't filed 1-485 yet coz I'm also on removal proceedings due to termination if my F-1 student visa . I don't have state ID nor drivers license and things are getting hard and harder for us to survive without me working . I have SSN but it's not for employment . What should I do ? Can I just risk and work ?
Working without employment authorization is not a bar to an application for adjustment based on marriage to a United States citizen. However, what you write on the I-9 is something that you should be concerned about. How an employer will be willing to hire you without employment authorization is another problem. Good luck.
