  1. Hi! I am a lawful permanent resident at the moment and will be filing my citizenship this May 2020. Also, I am getting married in the Philippines this April 2020. I am planning to petition my then spouse after I take my oath and get my certificate of naturalization. I need an advice whether to change my last name or not on my marriage certificate to be filed in the Philippines. Would this cause conflict when I apply for my citizenship? Should I just wait for my citizenship application to legally change my name? If so, what would be the effect of this when I petition my spouse after obtaining my citizenship knowing that my legal name would already be different from what is on the marriage certificate. Please help.
  2. Hello everyone, I hope any of you could help me. I am currently a Colombian citizen and my husband a US citizen. We are filling the form I130, there they ask us for my last name and if I have used others. I am planing on changing my single last name legally in Colombia but first I want to have my green card. I have heard that some people put their marriage name on the form even if they haven’t legally change it, is that legal? if my question isn’t clean what I am asking is can I put my marriage name on the form even if I haven’t legally change my single last name to my marriage name and clearly I will not have any documentation saying that I got my last name changed. I want my green card to have my marriage name but I will no be able to change it legally can I still put my marriage name anyway?
  3. I just recieved my employment authorization card but I do have a question with my last name on the card it’s (example) John-Smith but my Last name legally is John Smith I just need to know if it matters ? Because when they approved my form i765 and i130 on the i130 said “Name was Updated” and after that I received my receipts with my last name hyphenated. does it affects while I’m waiting my green card? Thank you.
  4. Hello, I just got in US with the K1 Visa. We are going to marry soon, but first we are worrying about the last name our family will have. As I'm Brazilian I have 3 last names and I use to be known by the first of them (signature, social media e etc). That's completely common in Brazil. Happens that in US just the last last name is your actual legal last name. My fiancee and me are trying to figure out a way to make my first last name as our legal last name. She loves my first last name and actually wanna that more than me. Is there any way to change it before the marriage? And after?
  5. Hello everyone, When we first started the process, my wife didn't have a new passport under my last name and we used her maiden last name in every step of the way. Now everything got approved and even an appointment date is scheduled, she changed her passport and now she has a new passport under her married name. We just want to know how we proceed now that everything in the applications is under her maiden name and when we go to the interview she would have a new passport. And another question, when scheduling the medical exam online, should we use the old passport name or the new passport name. Thanks in advance everyone and good luck to all people out there with their processes of applications. Best regards
