i have my green card since 2006 i recently got married and at the court house they told me i had to change my name to my husbands. i personally wanted to keep my name but the daily at the court house made it clear i had to change it or my husband had to change it. i went to social security to request for my social security card to be change i even ask them if i had to change my name and they said yes so i went along with it. They told me i had to call immigration for a new green card request and gave me a phone number. i called and the person i talk to told me i didnt had to change my green card so i didnt. i received my new social security card within a couple of weeks after. now after a year of being married i lost my social security card so i went to request for a new one. they told me i couldnt get one until i change my green card. i call immigration again to ask and this time they said i had to change my green card. in order to do this i have to pay around 500 and wait atleast 6 months until i get finger prints again basicly go through the whole process again. Knowing how divorce rates are so high and me and my husband having some issues already i dont think is a good idea to change my green card pay 500 dollars and then what if i get divorce in a few months that means another 500. i m a college student i dont have the money to do this. plus i really dont want to graduate a get a diploma with my husbands name on it. seriously my parents deserve to have some credit on how far i have gone with my career. i want to have my maiden name back on my social what can i do. social security wouldnt change it back even though my green card has my maiden name. Right now i just got laid off work and cant apply for another job because i dont have a social security card.

Does your marriage certificate show your last name as your maiden name or your husband's name? If you changed you name on the marriage certificate then that is your legal name.

As far as your college diploma you should be able to request that in your maiden name. Go to the registrar's office and make the request.
