Going Back To The US with my Green Card

Well, I've spent a good chunk of almost a month here in Canada, but I'm really ready to go back home to the US. Since I'll be flying with my brand spankin' new Green Card, I have a few questions to ask that some of you may have some answers to.

1) I've booked my ticket with my maiden name, since that's what appears on my passport. When I go through customs & fill out the blue US customs forms, beside the part where it reads "Family Name", do I put it as my maiden name (on my passport) or my married name (on my Green Card)?

2) With my green card & passport, I'll also have my approval for being a US Permanent Resident with my married name on it, along with an official copy of my marriage license as well. Would that be enough?

3) I also have my passport stamped as well, since I thought I wouldn't get my Green Card on time. Do you think that would be a problem? It's good until August 1, 2010, since I told the lady at my InfoPass appointment that I would be staying in Canada for about a month (feels good to be back in Canada... but I miss my home in the US!)

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

+1 on all three.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
