AOS Passport Question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband's AOS interview is May 11. When we got married last year I changed over all my major documents (SS, Drivers License, any bills) to my new married name. I haven't changed my passport from my maiden name to married name yet. Reason being, it isn't cheap and I hadn't planned on traveling out of country in the forseeable future so I figured I'd change it eventually)

I know that I need to bring my passport to the interview to establish that I, the US Citizen, have citizenship. Will it be a problem that the passport is still under my maiden name?

No problem- many women never change their name at all.

Agree. No problem. Just remember to book any international flight tickets in the passport name. For domestic flights you can book in your DL name and use it as photo ID.
