Timeline

As of last year,I was granted TPS and currently have a valid social under my married name.I applied for AOS under my maiden name.My Biometrics notice has my Alien Registration number but my social was omitted.Does this mean I will get a new social ? Also,if I have to fill out a form at my Bio. Appointment,should I put my social if asked even though USCIS did not include it in the notice?

They are both my legal names.I can use both as long as I don't try to commit any type of fraud.An immigration representative said that immigration doesn't care what name I use as long as I indicate other names I have used.I renewed my passport recently and its under my maiden name so that's one of the reasons why I applied under my maiden name.

I thought once you changed your name due to marriage, only your married name is legal name. They usually reapply drivers license, social security card with their new married name.

It's not like you can use your maiden name here and use your married name there.

A legal immigration representative told me I can use my maiden name and I read several posts on here regarding people using their maiden name instead of their married name on their immigration documents with no problem.In New York,the law states that even though you change your name when you get married,you can still go by your maiden name as long as both names are not used for fraudulent activities.I renewed my passport after I got married and used my maiden name.Also,all of my educational records are under my maiden name and I intend to keep it that way.

I use both names. Maiden for anything that requires an ID (since all my ID is Canadian and is still under my maiden name), Married for anything that doesn't.

All my immigration papers were filled out in my maiden name (because I didn't know it could be done with my married), my ssn is in my maiden.. but my GC is coming in my married. Then I'll switch my SSN, and my DL to my married name. Still unsure what I want to do about my passport though since it's still valid for 4 years. Part of me says "renew it now, so that way you aren't renewing BOTH your passports in the same year" LOL.

Granted it was a different age, but my Mother had three names listed on her will as aka. There was her First Middle Maiden, First Middle Married, and Middle Maiden Married. For most of her adult life she used Middle Maiden Married even though her SSC had First Middle Married. Her death certificate was in First Middle Married, but most of her financial assets were in Middle Maiden Married. As long as we showed proper documentation there was not a problem. The problem was that most people think you must probate an estate or have court orders and like with the USCIS you have to educate them that no we have a will and trust that spells out how everything is to be divided--now just do it.

Her passport and DL were in Middle Maiden Married until she turn 64 and started collecting SS. She decided to make them all match her SSC even though the SS check was deposited into an account with her name as Middle Maiden Last.

No sure if this holds true today, but women can have several different legal names due to marriages and divorces--that is why there is the place for other names used :) .

Just my $0.02 worth on this whole name issue.

As long as you have an official name change document--marriage cetrificate, GC, naturalization documentation, court order that shows the new name--you can change the SSC. The SSA make give you grief, but you can usually get them to understand the circumstances by e-mailing the mail office on the website to have them help. It just requires going to the local office and waiting and waiting or mailing in the official document and waiting and hope they do not loose the offical document (that is why I would go in person). That is why most people never bothered to change the name on the SSC like my Mother. Now I understand that some DMVs require the SSC's name to match the name on the DL.

Good luck,

Dave

It took my wife and I about 20 minutes to do...people get married and change their socials everyday.

Maybe it used to be more difficult in the past.

My wife kind of assumed hers had changed in the system automatically when we filed the marriage certificate, but when she had a background check done for a job she applied for it came back as possible fraud because of the name difference. So we just went to the SSA office and had them straighten it out.

I still don't thnk she got a new card, but they did change it in their system and now the credit and background checks come back normal.
