Hi everyone!!

 

So really simple question here... I am getting married next week with my fiance visa (k1) and starting the paperwork for his adjustment of status. Questions here is, since I have dual citizenship and changing your last name is a HUGE hassle for passports and visas I have in my name I really don't want to mess with that. Is the fact that I refuse to change my last name to his legally going to hurt his chances for the AOS process??

Pretty sure name change is rather antiquated and disappearing custom. With immigration specifically it just creates more problems. It should not have any effect, there is no legal requirement for it, and it is not expected. At least not anymore. Save name changes for naturalization when you get a free one if you so choose.
