Will changing my last name change my immigration petition? 2 Answers as of June 11, 2013When filing for my husband’s green card the first time I used his last name for me. However due to my family line I had decided afterwards to not change my last name. It has been almost the two years and I have to file for my husband’s 10yr card. Should I contact immigration before hand and explain that I did not get me last name changed?

It will not make any difference as long as you can explain it in a straightforward manner. As a married woman, you do not have to change your name if you do not want to. Just have all the paperwork ready if you need to show it to anyone.
