Default sort of visa question

i have a friend who came into the USA under a 1 year tourist visa, got marriewd within 2 months.
Now they say they have their work viisa without first getting their ssn.
They also say that their greencard will be there in a month (as informed by a lawyer)

can all this be true?

A one year tourist visa ..unlikely
EAD yes you need that to get a SSN
GC ...in a month ..unlikely ..How long have they been here..total and in what state ..

Georgia i think.
Shes from australia, he USA.
it could have beena 6 month tourist thing, not sure.
and think she has been here a total of 6 months, maybe only 5.

Just seems wrong to me that someone, even though i count them as a friend can go through this process so quickly

Well according to USCIS they are still working on application for AOS received in DEC 2001 in Atlanta Georgia .....I think they may be in a drug induced haze..

If it is true, wouldn't be the first thing "wrong" about the US immigration process. As you say they are your friends, I'm sure you'll get over it. Be glad for them.
