Male Name Change while waiting on AOS

Hello.

My husband and I got married a couple of months ago after he arrived on his k1 visa. We already sent in the AOS paperwork but it has not been issued yet. I am the USC. My husband has decided he wants to drop one of his last two names.

Would we just do a courthouse name change and then somehow alert USCIS before his case is processed and the green card is issued? Is it even possible to legally change your name if you aren't a citizen or LPR?

I have been browsing the forum and it seems all I can find is information related to females changing their last names after marriage.

Thanks!

You would need to contact your local courthouse and ask them if he needs to wait until he is a permanent resident. If it goes through before the green card is issued and you get an interview, you may be able to get the green card printed with his new name. You could also make an Infopass appointment and try and get the name change updated in their system, if you do not have an interview. Once the green card is issued, you would need to pay to get it changed. Alternatively, he could wait until it was getting time to remove conditions, then go through the courts for a name change before filing the ROC. That way his new name would appear on his 10 year card.
