Hi ladies, I have been married for 2 and half years and am in the US. I am on H1B visa with my maiden name. I didn't get a name change after marriage because of green card application being in process. Also, I am kind of hesitant about loosing my previous identity. I don't want to loose my identity. Lately, my DH has been showing his dislike about my name not being changed. His parents keep asking him about when I will get the name changed. Allegedly, they want to have a PAN card with my new name so they can make investments under my name what for?. If you want to make investments for us make it under DH's name. I have researched a lot about the procedure for name change and haven't been able to find a good/ reliable source. There are too many unkowns for me. Where to get the name changed first like SSN, DMV, Passport, Visa? And i believe they all are interconnected because one place requires the proof of other e.g DMV requires passport and passport office requires license. It is like chicken and egg situation. And from talking to a lot of people the process involves a lot of hassle. I have yet to find a person in my situation who has gotten a successful name change. Personally, I am not so keen on changing the name. But, I decided this is not the battle I want to continue to fight. I'll do this if this makes DH happy. Your thoughts on name change???? Has anyone gone through this? Thank you!!!
