Surnames on I 485?

Hey Guys,

I'm completing the AOS after my fiance and I got married last week.

I came to the States to marry my wife, so my question is : Do we use her maiden name or married name under the 'current spouse' section?

Sorry if this seems a simple and obvious question.

Cheers.

Hello there. Congrats. I used my married name on everything. The marriage certificate is proof of formal/legal name change. In one part they will ask you what other names you have used. Good Luck.

Yea, you want the applications to have the name that she will want on her EAD and GC :) That made the most sense to me when I was reading about it b4 sending mine off.

.. and hey what's obvious to ppl who have heard it a million times is not obvious to others at first. We all have asked questions during this process that we now think have obvious answers.

Also, congratulations on the wedding! :dance:
