I checked the link above and also the previous posts... however, cannot find one that applies to my situation. I have inferred the answer to my own question, just want to double-check. I'm sorry if this sounds repetitive... but this whole changing name is new to me.
I filed my I-129F with my maiden name, got K-1, came to the States and will marry next week. I want to take my husband's last name and move my maiden name to middle name. Do I fill out I-485 with my new married name then? the marriage certificate should be enough proof... I'm just worried since previous forms (I-129F) have my maiden name.
I read the case of someone who filed I-130 with maiden name and you recommended to keep consistency. Does that apply in my situation too? Or this is the best time to switch names?
And... about the I-130... I see almost everyone filed one... I think I do not need one if I have approval notice for I-129F... am I correct?
Truly appreciate your help, time and patience.
