We are preparing to file for the AOS and wonder if we'll write my maiden name or married on all the forms? Another thing is if I will use my new married signature or just the old maiden signature? Any ideas? Gracias!

If you plan to use your married name (which I presume you do) - use it on your AOS/EAD/AP forms - it is much easier to do so now than to change things later. (If using married name, use married-name's signature.) :thumbs:

IT doesn't matter what you chose. We moved my wifes maiden name to her middle name and used her new name on all the docs and forms. Some friends of ours waited until the app for her Citizenship before doing the official name change. It doesn't really matter, but I think its best to change your name from the start. This helps show how authentic your marriage is as well.

The only other thing this cuases you to have to do is show your marriage license when applying for joint bank accounts and similar things. But thats about it.
