My adjustment of status documents and papers are all in my maiden name along with my recent EAD/card. When I go to the social security off for my ssn what will be required for me to have it issued in my married name from my husband? Any help is appreciated. My husband is not even sure exactly what is required himself.

You can have your SSN issued in whatever name you are going to be using legally, whether that be your maiden name or your new married name.

If you do chose to have it in your new married name, you will be required to show a certified marriage certificate.

You should probably have everything in the same name, so if your GC and EAD documents are in your maiden name, and that is the name you prefer to use legally, then you should also get your SSN card in your maiden name.

yea just follow what raymaga said, and once you receive all your docs, then you can go ahead and change everything at the same time (DL, SS card, school docs etc). It sounds tedious and time consuming but I think that doing it this way will avoid confusion and delays in your paperwork. Usually it takes from 3-6 months to change your docs to your married name, depending on how fast your area is at doing documents.

Tu eres panamena o tu esposo? de que parte de panama son? les deseo lo mejor ;)
