Recommended Posts

Am i going to have near the same problems when my husband goes for his interview in a couple weeks? I am the petitioner. When filling i-130, my maiden name was used because in the Netherlands that's what you keep. I had to come back to the USA and go to court, pay 500 to get my maiden name changed to my married name, which took a couple months. Even tho i purchased an International Marriage License. I did not change my maiden name to my married name on the immigration stuff. I DO have the original court order for name change (my husband has it just in case it was needed) and the reasoning behind it (because I got married in foreign country and they keep maiden names, i wanted my married name). Ugh hope this causes no problems.

The petitioner's name doesn't matter.

The OP is talking about his wife's name and as the beneficiary, if she wants her green card to be in her married name without paying $450 or waiting until removal of conditions or renewal of the green card, she needs her passport to be in her married name.
