A: If your partner previously worked using a fake social security number, it could potentially have an impact on her chances of obtaining legal status through marriage. The use of a fake social security number could be considered fraud, and could result in your partner being barred from receiving certain immigration benefits, including adjustment of status to permanent residency.

However, the specific impact on your partner's case will depend on a number of factors, including how long ago the use of the fake social security number occurred, the circumstances surrounding the use, and whether any legal action was taken against your partner as a result.

It is important for your partner to be honest and upfront about any past use of a fake social security number, as hiding this information could result in further legal consequences. Your partner may also want to consult with an experienced immigration attorney to assess her options and develop a strategy for addressing any potential issues that may arise.

Overall, while the use of a fake social security number could present challenges in the immigration process, it is not an automatic bar to obtaining legal status through marriage.
