Social Security Card

Hello All, I just got in to my new place of residence New Jersey (DV 2014 Winner). My issue is that everything I try to do they are asking for my SSN. Anyone knows if it will be sent to me automatic if so how long? Or do I have to apply for it locally, When I fill out the from for the Dv lottery I selected the box for a SSN so I'm thinking it will be mailed to me but I'm not sure!

police certificate

Jul 21st 2014
My interview will be in Montreal. I immigrated from Russia to Canada and now have a Canadian citizenship. I ordered a Police Certificate from Canadian police with my current name and my previous name which I had ,when I immigrated to Canada. However I have also my maiden name which I never used in Canada. Should I ask Police to also include it ? Should I proceed with fingerprinting in addition ?

Help filing DS-260 with the question: "is this child immigrating at a later date to join you

Jul 18th 2014
My child is over 21, so when I filled out the DV Lottery application, I put down 0 (zero) eligible children. DS-260 asks all children. My child is not immigrating with me, so the answer to that question is "no"; however, I do not know how to answer the next question, if he will be immigrating at a later date to join me. My child is working on his own immigration, independent of my application, so he may join me later, but not with my application. What should the answer to this question be?

DV 2014 - Strange Case

Jul 18th 2014

So here the problem starts: I contacted the US embassy and asked for rescheduling my appointment of...

Jul 18th 2014
Hi again everyone, please let me know if I shouldn't be posting in this category anymore, I don't really know where else to place this.

So here are some of my burning questions at the moment:
