Married name on AOS, EAD, AP

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone, I'm just filling in all our (my) AOS, EAD, AP forms and I just want to make sure that I should be using my new last name.

I am the K1-er who entered and we get married in a few weeks. I am preparing all the documents now.

I'll be taking my husbdan-to-be's last name so am I correct in filling everything out in my new last name?

I realize I'll need to take my marriage certificate with me whenever I go for anything but that's ok. I want to make sure things are done correctly.

Thanks for the input! :star:

Yeah thats correct! And make sure to have the marriage license even if you travel with AP cause your passport is in your maiden name and your travel document(AP) will be in your married name

Congratulations for your wedding :yes::yes:

Yeh you use your married name.

Make sure to take your marriage lisence with you when you get your Bio's done too. They wont do them unless you have that with you. Seen alot of people get turned away becasue they didnt bring it.

You can use either but it seems that most women elect to take their husband's name.
