Will it effect our petition if I change my name before it is approved and do I have to change it on the petition? I want to change my name. 

Are you the petitioner or beneficiary? I’m the petitioner of my husband I filled with my single name but a month after I receive my new usa 🇺🇸 passport (I apply for a new one with a name change at the same time I send my petition) when I receive my new passport I just send them a copy of my Noa1 or I-797 with a copy of my biographic page of new passport and a short letter asking them to please update my name! A week after they received it I got a notification telling me that they update my name. I got a uscis account with notifications turned on, that is why I got the text message.

File the petition with the name you intend to use going forward.  You do not need to document that name change with anything other than the marriage certificate.  THEN, or before, simply go ahead and update your ID, Passport etc. to reflect the change.  No need to file in one name and change later.

Mrs Neris

It is not time for my passport to expire for some time. Do you think I could submit my drivers license to update my name change with USCIS?

I think you can try! With trying you don’t loose anything. The reason I change my passport was because was already full and I have to changed anyway, then I decide to change my name too

YMMV

Correct, but use the married name going forward, such as on your affidavit of support, etc.  Your marriage certificate is all you need.  No need to submit documentation to USCIS or NVC about your married name.  However, having your husband carry a copy of any new ID you have in the married name can be good relationship evidence.

My attorney told me this is not a problem, so I actually did the same thing. I had already filed my I-130 and then changed my name about three months into it. My I-130 was approved and I will be filing my Affidavit or Support and all other documents using my new name. In general, you can submit your US passport as your evidence of citizenship to NVC, and this can have your new name on it. Since it sounds like you only have your drivers license, I would say go ahead and try and submit that in addition to everything else that’s required.

I would get a new passport with the new name anyways, at least before the next time you take an out of country trip, because when you travel your passport will need to match your legal name


Our CR1 Journey So Far:
 

USCIS Stage:

  • Feb 8 2019: Sent package
  • Feb 14 2019: Delivered
  • Feb 21 2019: NOA1 (PD Feb 14, 2019)
  • Assigned to Nebraska Service Center (yay... 🙄)
  • Waiting for: NOA2
