Q: How a K1 non-immigrant (married & visa expired) obtain a drivers licence with no help from the SoS or Attorney General?
K1 visa is good for 90 days to come into the USA, marry and apply for AOS. An out of state licence is good for 30 days in Illinois, then an state licence must be obtained, but as my visa was only valid for 90 days (expired Jan/16), I am not eligible for a drivers licence (must have a valid 6 month or longer visa), nor am I eligible for a visitor driving licence as I am immigrating and have an SSN. The Secretary of State's office told me to call USCIS and tell them to hurry up with my green card, there was nothing they could do. I contacted the Attorney General and was told that they don't become involved in the affairs of the SoS office and could not offer a response. I can't change my expired K1 non-immigrant visa classification. It seems silly that I have fewer rights than visitors, students and illegal immigrants. I would just like some explanation, if possible, as to why nothing can be done about this. Thank you.
