Name Change After AOS is Mailed

I just mailed out my AOS package. I completed it in my maiden name as I figured that using my married name would cause problems as my visa and all prior paperwork is in my maiden name. Now I'm reading that I should have filled out my forms using my married name to have my last name changed. Yeah, I know I should have checked sooner, but I've been too busy.

Is there a way to get my name changed on these forms? Could I just let USCIS know that I want to use my married name on my GC when I have my biometrics interview and they could update my form I-485 and G-325? That way at least my GC will have my married name. My marriage certificate has my married name on it.

I'm getting bogged down with all the different places I have to get my name changed.

You can but there is a fee involved..I'm not 100% sure though. I'm sure there will be someone else with far more information than I have and I'm sure they will help you :)

Best of luck Mary!

Topic moved to the correct forum.....

You can ask at your interview if they can amend your last name to your married name.... if not then you would need to file form I-90 and pay the fee once you have your greencard....

Could be a costly mistake if they won't make the change at the interview! Sorry you didn't read up on this before you sent in your paperwork.

Best of luck getting it changed later!

Thanks, no worries, really. It's not that big of a deal. I'm still the same person no matter what. I can always wait to change my name when my conditional GC expires. Time goes by so fast, that that day will be here before I know it. I can always show my driver's license/marriage cert for proof of my married name. :dancing:
