Hello,

AOS from L1B-Green card...

1)Is it easier for me to change my name to my husbands name BEFORE I file my paperwork?

2) a)If we move from our rental to a bought house, is it easy to change our address with USCIS

B) Can we use his parents address as a mailing/correspondance address?

Thanks again!

1. File the paperwork in your new name. Address your other IDs separately.

2. Yes you can change addresses.

3. Best to use your real address.

Thank you-when you refer to addressing my other IDs separately, should I be putting an additional document that states that this was my old name? Sorry-I need to be spoon-fed this info, clearly!

Thanks!

Andrea

I mean, file for your AOS in the new name. Then separately, go to the DMV and get a new license, go to Canada and change your passport, etc. I am saying they are unrelated to eachother. They know what your old name is. There is a section for your "maiden name" and for "other names used" in the forms. They can figure this out.

Hello,

Is it absolutely necessary that I change my name on my passport right away? Can that be done in time...only because I think they take your old passport which has my visa in it..even though they return it, that would be something I would like to hold on to.

Thanks!

You can take your time. When you travel (after AOS is over) bring a copy of your marriage cert to account for name change and book tickets in the name on your passport.

you don't need to change your name at all in your old passport if you want to, but it makes things easier. just make sure, if you decide not to change it in the near future and your have international travel planned, book your tickets in your name, that appears on your passport and have a copy of your marriage certificate ready, when you enter the US again.
