Surname change in Green card mandatory?

Recommended Posts

My wife is a GC holder and we just got her surname changed at Social Security Office because of marriage. Is it mandatory to have her name changed in her GC as well? Is there a fee if it is mandatory? I checked USCIS website but couldn't get clear information.

 

Thanks,

G.

The name in the Passport should be the name for Airline travel. The way to change names is to first have the Passport name changed FIRST. How did you manage to convince the SSN administration to change her name?

Thanks, but SSN Administration never asked for changed name in Passport as evidence. We provided original marriage certificate as proof which was enough for them to change name. Should we change the name in Passport now? Is it mandatory to have her name changed in her GC? Is there a fee for it?
