I-130 name change

I-130 name change evidence



I am a dual US/BG citizen. I recently married a French citizen in France. We want to go back to Florida, USA where i have lived for over 20 years. I have begun the I 130 application, pretty straight forward except, I married my husband using my Bulgarian passport, where my last name is different than the last name on my US passport ( during the naturalization process I chose a last name which is much easier to pronounce than my original family name).

I am afraid the application may be denied, or delayed for too long. Any advice, aside from changing my last name in my US passport, would be much appreciated.


Your marriage certificate demonstrating your maiden name should be enough to explain the discrepancy.
