    Speed provided some general info, however, need more information. Have you recently been or will be naturalized? Or did you get married? Or are we changing the first name and not the sur name? Please clarify.

    I am under TPS and got married last month to an USC, since I EWI back in 1996, I cannot readjust, but I would like to change my last name to my husband's.
    I need to know what form I need to file in order to change my work permit.
    I also need to change my DL, which I know I have to go in person as well as SS office. But I don't know what I have to do next to change my work authorization.
    Thanks alot.

    Hi again JSalas...

    You have the option to use the same last name
    when you marry here in the US.

    What did you use on your marriage certificate?

    HEllo Speed_025, thanks for your reply...

    I used my last name, We didn't know we could change my last name then. I thought we needed to do it first with the DL then SS then INS...
    Do you know how it works???

    Unless you chose last name that is different from your husband's , you do not have to do name change through court. Just take your marriage certificate to DMV and Social Security Office and they will change your last name to your husband's last name.

    If you are under immigration proceedings..
    If you filed for any type of immigration status adjustment, it is not recommended to do change your name until immigration procedure is complete. Besides, you will have an opportunity to request name change with immigration officer during your interview.

    Hi again Speed;
    I am under TPS and we only get to re-register once our work permit is about to expired, I have never had an interview with anybody.
    Like I said before I cannot readjust because EIW, so I cannot adjust my status, so I have to stay under TPS which expires in Jan 09, that's when we get to re-register, so I don't understand what should I do, should I change it or leave it how it's..... What do you recommend?????

  10. #10
    Maybe wait till you register..

    Change your last name to your married name
    when you register again .

    Then go to SS and DMV to change your last name to your married name.

    that way you're doing it all at once.
