AOS Approval i797 Welcome Letter

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


Just received the AOS Approval Letter yay!! Interview waiver k1 visa!! :)

However, I noticed a discrepancy. It has my maiden name and not the married name.

I filed all the paperwork in the married name and do not know why this notice came in the maiden name.

All other previous communication i797 and biometrics were received in the married name.

Is the AOS Approval i797 Welcome Letter supposed to be in the married name(how the paperwork was filed) or the maiden name(they just choose what they want to put)??

Thank You, I have searched a lot of websites including this one and just cannot find out the answer, I do have a call into USCIS to ask them how the green card will appear also.
