Request name change during interview - Can I change my mind?

Hello, this is my situation.

 

I got married in October 2019. At that time, I decided to change my last name, so I received the marriage certificate with my new married name.

Right after, I filed for AOS, requesting a name change in all the documents (I 485, I 130, I 131,  I 765). 

My SSN, driver licence, passport and everything are still on my madein name. 

 

After few months, I am considering to go back to my maiden name. There are multiple reasons: avoiding the troubles of changing my bank accounts, credit cards, passports, SSN.

Moreover my home country doesn't make it easy for a person to change their legal name

 

Could I request to go back to my maiden name during the AOS interview even if I filed the documents with my married name? 

 

Thank you!

Hi , 

when I had my interview in Paris they asked me which name I want on my visa at  the time they picked the documents I was supposed to bring and before to see the consular agent for the interview .

on the application it was my maiden name + my married name .

I said That I just want my married name and that’s what I have in my visa 😀

ask for it at the time of the interview .

 

i hope it helps 🙂

Okay, so it sounds like you can still edit your name during the interview according to your answer. Thank you.
