I-485 Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When filling out a I-485 for a K1 Visa Marriage, would I fill out the forms with my wifes married name if me and her have married since applying for the visa, or should I continue to fill out the forms with her maiden name, which is what was used to file for the K1 Visa.

I am trying to make sure I do not confuse USCIS when they are looking for other files.

I have filled it out with our married name, but then I thought about it, just curious how others have done it.

Thanks.

I would attach a letter to the application. In the box that asks for her last name/info, add "Please see attachment ***" Then explain it on the additional letter. Its what I did for Emily when we initially did our K1 and now on to her consulate interview.

If you want to GC in her married name then yes you fill out 485 in her married name which is yours yes? Se is now married to you and if she wants to take your name then all forms should be filled out in her married name.

We put Jenni's married name on the applications and sent a certified copy of our marriage license along with it. Seems to be the normal process for a K-1 so they should be used to it.

As Barb said. You complete the forms in the name she wants on the GC. If you put the married name on the forms, you put her maiden name in the "other names used" box.

They expect this as this is what the K1 is about.
