First name changed after married for AOS

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We got married in Iowa and my wife was able to change her 1st name ( for easier enunciation). Is it going to be a problem later for immigration purposes? I’ve read in this forum and a few posts mentioned that name change needed court order for immigration (citizenship…) later on. Can someone shed some lights on this topic for me? Thanks

I know a VJ member who tried to apply for her greencard with a new first name, other than the one in her immigration records. It was rejected. They said she would have to go through a legal name change and present the documentation with her AOS application. It's whatever your county or state requires to do a name change, other than taking a husband's last name which requires no special legal doings. If Iowa allows a first name change in that way, then just present the proper proof.

With naturalization, there is a place in the application asking if you want to change your name. The intent of that is to allow a more Americanized name if the new citizen wishes. It will be approved by a judge, but it's a step in the process and not something you have to do in a local court on your own.

My friend has her citizenship interview next month and is indeed changing her name in the process.
