Hi everyone. I got married about 2 weeks ago and now I am planning to start my AOS.

I have a question regarding my husband last name. I would like to change to his last name. How should I do?

Can I fill out all the application (I 485 / ! 130 etc) with his last name? Is there a option asking if I want to change? I did not find yet..

Thank you for any help.

Does your marriage certificate show your last name as your husband's? That is the common and easy way to do the legal name change. If so, then you are now legally Firstname Husbandslastname.

If not, I believe that you should check with the county court to learn the process.

Actually, it doesn't matter how your name appears on the marriage certificate, the certificate itself is the document that allows you to change your name, so it isn't necessary to check with the courts.

For example, I did not change my name at the time we filed our marriage license so my maiden name appears on our certificate. About a year later, however, I wanted to change it and just took the certificate to the Social Security office and got a new card - then my name was legally changed.
