Hi! I just married my wife via the K-1 visa. Now, im in the process of preparing the AOS filing paperwork. This seems so obvious, but I don't want to trip up on this. What last name do I use for my wife????

The marriage cert from the court has her maiden name listed under her section. And, she has no id at the DMV or Social Security office yet, so I can't change anything there. Her visa and passport from Canada are obviously all under her maiden name.

Should I prepare the paperwork with her last name changed to mine? Or should I just prepare all the paperwork with her maiden name? We both want her name to be mine.

You prepare the paperwork with her last name changed to yours. :)

Hi,

I have just filed the AOS paper and I did use my new name. So go on and use it as well. That's how she will be called now anyway and on her ID they will use the new name as well.

Hi TOAST!

Your wife can fill up the AOS application using your last name. Just send a copy of your marriage cert. with your application.

I use my husband's last name when we apply for my adjustment of Status. We sent a copy of our marriage cert with our AOS application. As for my SSN I took our marriage cert. and my passport when I applied for SSN. To get my TX driver's license I had my passport and EAD card. In my EAD card I had my husband's last name on it. I never had any problem using my husband's last name when we sent our AOS and EAD application as well as for getting my driver's license.
