Hey, hope someone can help!

I am from the UK, living in the US with American hubby. My green card, drivers license, ss card etc are in my new married name. But my passport is in my maiden name. We are going to the UK on vacation in a couple weeks and am wondering if I need to change my passport to get back into the US on our return, or do I just show them my green card??? thanks!

Take a copy of your marriage certificate to show proof/reason why name is different to avoid any problems with security. That's what the security guy at Heathrow told me.

OK thanks, thats what i figured. I got a reply from the UK passport office yesterday, they said its fine to travel in your maiden name as long as your plane ticket is in the same name, oops, i booked my ticket in my new name!

just worried about getting back into the us, i guess they would ask for my green card at the POE not my passport anyways?!?!

They ask for your green card and your passport. It will be fine. If you got a really cranky official they might ask why you haven't updated your passport, but the answer is pretty straightforward: that costs money!

When checking in at the airport they may have to manually override the system to allow you to travel with a ticket that is in a different name from your ticket, but otherwise shouldn't be a problem. I don't think you should have trouble entering the UK, but couldn't say for sure.
