Name Change During Immigration Process

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello to all my visajourney advisors,


Before the approval of my spouse’s I-130, I officially changed my last name (social security, and driver license) the DOS said that they were not able to change my last name since the case was not yet moved to them but the USCIS officially changed my last name on the case.


Now hat the case is at the NVC, they are saying that they can’t change my name without my current last name being on my visa (but they replied to me using the current[married] last name). My problem is that I have to file taxes and desire to visit my husband. The thought of me getting another passport and visa is just too much right now. 


Do so I have to get a new passport right now? Should I worry myself about my last name? 


I really desire direction in this matter. Responses and guidance would really be appreciated. Thanks for your responses in advance.
