Well, I signed on to the NVC payment center to see if by any chance I had a SIF--I didn't--and saw that they changed my wife's name. We had filed everything form the very beginning in her married name, and tonight it showed her maiden name--at least I knew they were working on our case !!

I called of course, and they said that at NVC everything was done in the name on her passport since that is the name they would issue the visa in, and not to worry since the change would not slow things down a bit. But strange.

But now I do wonder what name will show up on her green card--anybody want to take a stab at it ??

That is strange...if they are to follow whatever her name on the passport is, then, I guess they will use that name for the visa as well. Just a wild guess. So, her passport still has her maiden name then?

I mean, green card as well. but, I maybe wrong.

Yup--maiden name on each of her passports--Mexico and Costa Rica--and it makes sense that the visa would be in that name, but all the USCIS docs were processed with her married name. I suspect we have an I-90 and its relatively big fee in our future !!

You bet--we will be together at the interview--Costa Rica welcomes the spouse--so we will certainly ask if there is any way to intervene before the green card and SS# are issued.

I have read something on the internet just now that when the green car was issued, it has the maiden name and below it was the married name. They filed for I-90. Just FYI. The best bet is for you to ask on her interview. :)

Don't quote me on this, but isn't it true that you can change the maiden name to the married name at the POE? I believe that NVC told me that this was possible, as well as the CO at our interview. My wife did not ask about it at the POE though, because no Spanish translator was available at the POE in Atlanta, and she could not understand whoever interviewed her.

I have always had trouble finding something that actually says that this is possible, and was hoping to try it at the POE rather than spend all of the money on an I-90. This link to an earlier thread contains a post that says that the couple did this. It is the third one down (and ironically you posted right beforehand). http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/293709-cr1-spousereceiving-green-card/

This is a problem my wife and I have also run into.

Everything is in her maiden name. We both wanted it to be her married name.

Our problem tarted in Ukraine. Ukraine would not recognize a Jamacian Marriage license to change her name before filing on her passport.

We went through alot to get this done with no luck.

Now as far as her arriving in the US we thought we would try then to have her name changed. We were advised then this could create problems if she every went home to visit family etc.. and returning back to the USA. Now I am not sure for fact if it is true or not and we will be looking further into the matter, but it was explained to us by immigration attorney (we all know how that work out) that she could be denied rentry if names are not matching on passport and greencard. Like I said I waned to confirm this.

At the moment we have been left with belief she may have her maiden name until becoming a US citizen.

I am also curious as to what is true or not in this situation because we would like to have the last name changed but not at the expense of her not being able to leave the country.

my stab - green card issued in visa name, which is issued in passport name.

Same rules apply here in the Philippines. The name that shows in your passport should be the name that you should use on all the forms, and the name that will appear on the green card. I am just wondering how come they processed the application on her married name where in fact the passport shows maiden name.

I had the name on my passport changed before we filed the I-130 and everything went smoothly.

This is my problem right now. I hope that it can be easily fix without slowing down my petition. My wife's name is Maria Desamie. I separated it and wrote her name Maria to First Name and Desamie to Middle name. When i received my NOA1 and NOA 1... Her name showing GALANG, MARIA D. She just filed her passport and now showing GALANG, MARIA DESAMIE Barcenas. Barcenas is her Maiden name. I already contacted NVC regarding my problem but they can't help me without my case number. It's already been 18 days and they still no record of it. I don't know if this is going to be a problem in the future. I hope this can be fix without slowing down my petition. We are already ready to submit our DS3032 form so we can pay for AOS and IV fees and move on...
