I'm not supposed to do this...

I have this posted in the work & travel b4 greencard section, but it might take longer than I have to get a response so here goes...

Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this - my AP is in my married name, as well as all my other ID, US driver's license, military ID, etc, etc...

My passport is in my maiden name... I know, I should get it changed, but I have been insanely busy at work, etc.

Will I have issues re-entering the US. I am bringing my marriage cert, too.... I won't go though if there's any chance of being denied re-entry.

(Don't know if it matters, but my flights will all be domestic and I will be driving across the US/Canadian border)

I've travelled twice to the US -- once with my AP, once with my greencard. Both my AP and GC are in my married name, and my passport is still in my maiden name. I had no troubles either time going through the POE at JFK. I took my certified copy of my marriage certificate if asked. Since your flights are domestic, you don't have to book your tickets in your maiden name (like you would if you were flying the entire way to Canada). Just make sure you take your marriage lisence or certificate.

happy trip! :)

Ok, I have a slight nitpick to make. A marriage license is not evidence of a marriage. A marrriage certificate is. And only evidence of an actual marriage is evidence of a name change due to marriage. Evidence of intent to marry (which is what a marriage license is) is not evidence of a name change due to marriage.

Point taken, though.

But that means it's no longer just a license but a certificate.

Just wanted to point that out in case there was a n00b reading who didn't know any better. I recognize that you and Cassie do.

On the subject, I have a story of a friends wife who tried to leave an airport in India with her US LPR card in married name and Indian passport in maiden name, on a flight back to JFK. The Indian airport people didn't even let her board the flight because they didn't believe she was entitled to go to the US. She had no LPR stamp in her passport.

This is a rarity, I'm sure. And this happened in Calcutta, a low-traffic Indian airport with some of the most ignorant workers you'll meet anywhere.

I answered your other thread.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Hmmm...I was planning to drive back to Canada possibly as early as this coming week. I was planning to take all necessary documents...AP..marriage certificate....passport, etc. Then I got to thinkin....the last time I crossed the border via car was 15+ years ago and at that time, you just verbally answered a few questions regarding length of stay, where are you from, how much did you spend, how much tobacco and alcohol etc. What exactly happens at the POE these days when driving across the border? Do they ask for identification? I know that sounds like a silly question, but, if I am so used to flying these days and going through POE at the airport where producing documents is very much of a routine. I can't ever remember having to produce identification when crossing the CAN/US border although I am sure things have changed in light of 9/11. Thanks for any info

BTW...Canadalaura...hope you enjoy the trip back to Canada! I know I am looking forward to spending a couple of weeks back home and have my grocery list set out already....Tim's is #1 on that list of course!

Well... when I was crossing a lot last year before I moved, most times I was asked for my passport or birthcertificate and driver's license, but a few times thye didn't ask for any ID at all - this was on the US side.

Canadian side, I was barely ever asked for ID!
