Hello!

I got to US on F-1, and got married!!! Now I'm confused about filing and the name change, does the marrriage lisence change my name automatically where when I file for AOS I can just put my husband's name on the form itself??? so when the green card comes it will be with his name. OR I put my maiden name (the name on the visa and i-94) and then they change my name for me on the green card themselves??? Please help me with that, I know it's probably not a big deal, but it's important...

Thank you.

oops... it was k-1 i came here on.

If you want to use your new married name, then simply fill out the paperwork for the AOS process with your new married name. If you don't, your cards will come with your maiden name on them. There is a line on the I485 that asks for names previously used and this is where you would put your maiden name(so it matches your passport I94 etc).

Thank you for your answer, that really makes sense!
