You can use any last name you prefer in your aos forms. I used my maiden name as middle name and took my husbands name in last name. My marriage certificate also shows my name with maiden and last name so that can be ur document forname change. Also they ask you for your other name used so you can use ur maiden name on that.

The reason I did that is because I will change all my documents except for my passport in my married name and if I want to change my last name in greencard that is extra couple hundred dollars. Why spend extra

Check with your county court where you got the marriage license and ask what the state laws are for a man changing his name through marriage. You might need to file for a court-ordered name change.

Hi guys!
I have a problem: I want to change my last name, I filled all the forms with my new last name but I didn't bring my marriage certificate to the fingerprints so they did my fingerprints under my maiden last name. So will it effect my case? I was trying to get answers from the uscis worker who was doing my fingerprints but she couldn't give me clear answer. She just said my work authorization will be under my maiden name and green card might too....Im not worried about it now Im just worried if it effect my case in general....Thank you for answers!

That should not be the case if you filled the forms in your married name. You can make an infopass appointment and take your marriage certificate in. Ask them about your situation and see if they can make sure your married name is the system so your cards will come with the correct name you need.

Actually I've asked uscis worker if I can just bring marriage certificate later she said I can't bring it to the place where I've had my fingerprints only to the interview. In case if they print green card after interview I could tell officer that I want to change my last name in the gc. If I get work authorization with my maiden last name it would be ok. Or you think I should make infopass appointment?

If you are adjusting from a K-1, you may not even have an interview. Yes, I think you should make an infopass, take your marriage certificate and copies of the AOS forms you filed in your married name. Let them know what happened at the fingerprinting and ask them to be sure your correct, current married name is their system.

Telling you it doesn't matter if the EAD comes in the maiden name is wrong. Some people use the EAD in their married name to get their SSN in their married name, get a drivers license, bank accounts, etc in their married name. It is valid government ID in your new married name.

It is costly to change a green card after it is issued and takes months too. You should try and make sure your cards will come in the correct name you want and need on them.

I'm adjusting from tourist visa and I have already ID, bank account and social security number but it says valid with work authorization so if I get work authorization it will not change anything for me. All it has my maiden name on it.

So if I do infopass appointment I will have to go to the same place where I did my fingerprints?

In that case, you will have an interview and can ask the IO about the name to make sure your green card has the married name you want it to.

Some places have the fingerprinting location separate from the USCIS office, so not sure if you would go to the same place. Typically yes, if you were to make an infopass appointment, you would go to the same place.

Hi! Im quite confused. So you can use any last name for the EAD? Coz i used my Married Name but now i got an RFE saying that the name i used doesnt match their records, and they are asking for my birth certificate and other proof of legal name change. So now i have to resend it again, but now im not sure which last name to use. I would really like to start using my married name so i wouldnt have to change everything else later on

Any advice?
