USC Legal Name Change

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just realized that I filled out all the AOS paperwork with my new married name (I am the USC) but my check still has my maiden name that I am sending in for the filing fee (have not had time to go to the bank, etc. to change all that!) So...I signed the I864 with my married name and the check will have to be signed with my maiden name so it matches the information on the check..will it be a problem?

I hope that this is just an overly cautious question, but I wanted to send in the AOS today and just noticed this.

Any suggestions? They will see on the marriage certificate that it is my married name, but I don't know how all these legal changes work..

Thanks!

I don't think it will be a problem. They will submit the check to your back electronically and all they are looking for is that the check has the correct amount and a signature. The check I sent had my old address on it and it went through without any problem. Good luck in your process!
