Good day!


I'm very worried about something we just realized today.


My husband is a US citizen and is petitioning me. We have filled out the i130 with my maiden name since it is the one refelcted on my passport and my US tourist visa (which were both valid when we sent them). So we recieved the NOA1 with my maiden name on it. Now my question is, will it affect my petition that i didnt use my married name? We sent the marriage certificate with everything but we used my maiden name, thinking it should match my passport.


And then, if we move to the NVC phase in the future, will it affect that my NEW passport has my married name. This is a little confusing but ill try to explain it. When we sent our petition (nov 2018), my passport had my maiden name. My passport is set to expire this July 2019 so i renewed it in my married name. Some forums said it would affect me in my nvc stage. This really worries me.


Will all these matter? Help pls.
