NAME CHANGE - PLEASE HELP

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After my wife came here on K1 - I had her apply SSN with maiden name and then after marriage - I went back to SSN office to change her name officially b4 submitting AOS app - But We were told by the folks in ssn office that we will have to notify DHS first of our marriage - before they can change her name.. So My question is

1. How do we notify DHS of our marriage?

2. Is it better idea to submit AOS app without changing name? or change name first then submit AOS?

Please help ....

Best Regards,

Ashif

1. You notify them by submitting the AOS/EAD/AP package in her married name.

2. Submit AOS etc in her married name. Once she has the green card or EAD with her married name on it, she can go back to the SSA and apply for a new SS card with her arried name on it.


Moving post to "AOS from family-based visas" forum.

What Lainie B said. The only thing I would add is to wait for the GC that way you get a SSC with the new name and no pesky DHS note.

Good Luck!
