Hi all. Do wee need to fill out a new G-325A when filing for the the AOS? Or can we use the one I made copies of when we filed the I-129F?

And when filling out the new forms such as I-485, I-765, etc.. do I still use her maiden name. Although we married within the 90 day time frame we have never filed for my wife's Social Security card before or after marriage yet. So, we have not officially changed her last name to mine, so I have been using her maiden name when filling out the AOS forms. is that ok?

Thanks in advance for you help.

Katherine and Rodney

No, foreign fiance(e) has a new current address since moving to the US.

If your wife has changed last name and wishes to use her married name in the future then all forms must be filled out in married name. Your marriage certificate proves the legal name change.

Its up to you; However, her GC will have her maiden name. What reason would you have for changing her SS to your name? The same reason you believe is necessary for changing the social is the same reaon her GC should have her proper name- she is your wife. She is no longer your fiancé with the old name but your wife with the new name. Use her new name to avoid confusion. She is adjusting as Mrs X the wife and not Miss Y the fiancé.

Hi all. Do wee need to fill out a new G-325A when filing for the the AOS? Or can we use the one I made copies of when we filed the I-129F?

Not to be rude but of course you need new ones!! Have a look at the forms. You're married now, not single. She's moved. The info has changed so yes new forms.

And when filling out the new forms such as I-485, I-765, etc.. do I still use her maiden name.

If you want the card in married name you put married name. Put maiden name where it asks for "other names used"

Although we married within the 90 day time frame we have never filed for my wife's Social Security card before or after marriage yet. So, we have not officially changed her last name to mine, so I have been using her maiden name when filling out the AOS forms. is that ok?

She is an immigrant. Unlike an American her name is not controlled by the SSN (which in turn enables you to change it at the DMV and so on) so not changing it or not having one doesn't matter. She HAS "officially changed her name" if she wants to. Basically she's in name limbo. She can elect to keep her maiden name or she can change it to married. To change it to married she just starts signing in her married name and identifying in married name and when asked for proof showing the marriage cert (until she has other ID). Once she makes the change though she will need either a divorce, or a legal name change to change it back.
