Name Change on GC

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a 10 yrs GC holder and recently divorced. I need to request the name change on GC/SSN and stuff but the divorce decree doesn't say my name is changed at all even though I requested it to the court (in Colorado). Does it have to do with me being a foreigner, and had had my married name since I arrived in United States? I thought they'd look up the marriage license record or whatever showing my maiden name... but I guess they just looked SSN up only? The court didn't mention anything about the name change requests I filled it out on several documents of divorce, ended up receiving the decree saying my married name still. I am in a different state and totally lost what to do since I want to change my name back so bad and restore my maiden name in my home country record stuff too... I am sorry my point is scattered around but hope anybody would give me some advice, thanks.

On the FL180 form (Judgment) I have with me, I checked the #4 boxf which says my former name is restored to which I specified before the Judge signed the Dissolution.Although I mentioned it on the initial filing, I made sure on the Judgment that my former name will be restored. Btw, this is in California.I'm not sure if there's still other way to change yours..

Thanks for helping me out. I think you answered my question last time too, thanks :D

I found out my judge misread my petition and they forgot to restore my name...

I have received the new decree finally (3rd time!!), so I finally can go back to my

home country to claim a divorce there too. Good luck to you all.
