CA residents help - DMV License Limited Term Extension

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

sorry if this is the wrong area but I'm not sure where to post this question...

I was petitioned as a K-1 Fiance', when I got married I changed my surname. I got my DMV license after I got my EAD card which already shows my married name so my DMV license also shows my married name. The expiration on my license is the expiration on my EAD which is already about to expire next month, I got a letter from DMV asking me to send proof of legal presence to extend my limited term license. I sent them back a copy of my Green Card which already has my married name too. Now they sent me back my application and said that they cannit process my request because they requested clearance from Department of Homeland Security but got a response that the name reflected in the record is different than the one in my green card. (I sent them copy of front and back of my green card, the front shows my married name) the back shows (my maiden name).

How do I get this corrected? Did I miss a a step? should I have notifified Department of Homeland Security for the change in my name when I got married? What should I do to get my license extended?
