Help with SSN and Greencard

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

A question for all the knowledgable people out there. I got my greencard yesterday but it was in my maiden name. They went by my passport. So any suggestions what to do next? I'm wondering if my SSN will be in my maiden name as well. Any help would be appreciated.

What name was used on I-130, G-325A, DS-230.... through out the process?? If you have copies of the petition and DS-320 and they are in married name, you then have documented evidence USCIS messed up and can file an I-90 without fee for a corrected green-card. If not, the I-90 will cost $450 to file for a corrected card.

SSN probably will also have maiden name.

Moving..

Hi there

Your SSN will be in your maiden name until you change it. I'll assume that your passport is in your maiden name as well as you have processed your USCIS documents. You need to take your passport and your original copy of your marriage certificate to your local Social Security office, that way you can change your name to your married name. You can also send in the information, but they require the original, or a certified copy.

Check the following link: http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/315

Also, I would wait to get my state id (driver's license, etc.) as most forms of id require a SSN to process. Get that done first then you can have the others in your married name.

Good luck!

It was done in both names as my passport was in my maiden name. I hadn't changed it. So on my application documents I had both names. Can I change it when it comes to adjustment of status? Keep the one till then?

Your status is Immigrant, there is nothing to adjust, you are not a NON-immigrant like a K-1 fiancee or a K-3 spouse.

However when you remove conditions on a 2 year card you can simply file I-751 using married name.

I am pretty sure the visa is issued using the name in the passport regardless of what was used on the forms...

Visa yes, however green-card should be issued in married name if this is what is indicated on all the forms. The OP was asking about Green-card, not visa.. Edited by YuAndDan
