If it's the name you want to use starting your marriage, you NEED to put it on every papers you file in now. So yes, AOS forms need to be filed with your new name.

It's the same in Mississippi: I then went, with the marriage certificate to the SS office and officially changed my name on the SS card and with that, my passport, driver licence etc.

Aint it a big deal to them that the name of my aplication is dfferent frm my licience and certificates?

Nope. They do this every day. Use your married name on your AOS application. The marriage cert is your proof of name change for USCIS. Simple.

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!

If that's how you want to be named, yes.

Once you get your green card, it will have your married name on it. You can then use that to request a name change (along with your marriage certificate) for you SSN and any other identification you want changed. You'll be fine.:yes:
