Hey y’all! So since we haven’t filed our 130 yet to get an official timeline (almost ready to submit application), I thought I’d post the timeline to getting my married last name cuz it’s pretty funny! 
 

Nov 19, 2019- I went to Social Security office with our Indian marriage certificate and all necessary documents for getting my last name changed to my hubby’s last name.  Nice lady did my application and warned me it would take a few months to be able to change my last name with Indian marriage certificate. 
 

Dec 3, 2019- I called Social Security about status of my application and was told it was at homeland security being scrutinized 

 

Dec 13, 2019- received following letter from SS, photo #1

 

Jan 6, 2020- mailed them the proof they asked for plus our original marriage certificate they told me they also wanted from a post office 

 

Jan 8, 2020- received my envelope in my mailbox requesting more postage 🤷‍♀️
 

Jan 9, 2020- mailed envelope again with the extra required $3.40

 

Jan 13, 2020- learned my envelope with Indian marriage certificate was lost in mail and called SS office to make sure they hadn’t received it (they said they hadn’t)

 

Jan 14, 2020- filed a missing mail request

 

Jan 16, 2020- USPS notified me that I had certified mail I needed to sign for


Jan 17, 2020- picked up certified envelope from post office. The envelope was from SS and included our marriage certificate and the following letter......image #2 notice the parentheses they used around “proof” :)

 

Jan 18, 2020- created the timeline of the ridiculous process of trying to get my hubby’s last name

Holy crow, that's a lot of work! I just assumed my husband's last name by going to service ontario the other day and showing my marriage certificate. My new ID is supposed to come in about 3 weeks. 

That’s wonderful!! I’m so happy for you!! There’s something pretty great about being able to have your hubby’s last name, especially if you’re not able to have him physically with you☺️

It's true! Writing my New signature made me feel giddy., especially since being apart has been really tough lately.
