US Citizen spouse legal name change during AOS

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My US Citizen spouse has recently done a legal change of both his first and last name. He has notified Social Security and eventually plans on changing his license, passport etc.

I am part way through the AOS process from a K1 visa. I've received my EAD & AP and our case is "ready to be scheduled for an interview" (however that notification has been there since September 2016 & we still don't have a date...... is that unusually long?)

My question is at what point do we need to notify USCIS of this name change and how?

Is there any paperwork or forms we need to send off?
Do we need to have the name changed on the wedding certificate?
Do we need to notify USCIS before the interview?
Or when we have our interview do we just bring the court document of the name change?

I'm starting to worry and can't find any information online in regards to the US citizen going through a name change and it being changed at this point in the process.

Thanks in advance
