SSN and marriage license

Hi guys!

Last summer I went to the states with a J-1 visa which allowed me to work and got a social security card. I heard that's valid for life and you only need to change your maiden name once you get married,so one of my first questions would be this : Can I bring that SSN with me to get my marriage certificate(because as now I've been approved a K1 visa and am traveling to the states on the 18th- my wedding date being set on November 3rd), if yes do I need to change my address on that one?(I will not live at the same address as I did last year).

Do I need to go to their office and ask for change of address? does it take long if so?

Secondly, like everyone else I got my medical examination done on embassy's request, in my country they ask you for a prenuptial paper(which is a medical test that shows you don't have any STD's)before you get married. Do they ask for the same thing in US when you apply for a marriage license, or the medical examination for the K1 is enough?

What documents do I need exactly and how long before my wedding I need to apply for a marriage license in MD?

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter!

Congrats first off. You will have to go to SS and change your name, address etc. once you are married. Might be a good idea to see them before you get married so the address they have on file matches your K-1 paperwork.

For the Maryland marriage requirements, try this site. Seems to do a pretty good job summarizing what you will need, time frame etc. Good Luck. http://marriage.about.com/cs/marriagelicenses/p/maryland.htm

Some counties in MD have some different items, so be sure to review the information at the county level for where the marriage license will be secured. Visit maryland.gov and on the left side, there's a drop-down of all counties in the state. That will direct you to the appropriate county site to ensure you have the latest/greatest information.

yes.gif Correct. Every county seems to do things differently here in MD.

**Post moved from K1 to Moving here and your life in America as the question is not related to a K1 visa process.
