My fiance (an American) and I currently reside in the US, though I am originally from Singapore. I would like to change my surname after marriage, but am feeling a bit intimidated by all the paperwork I'll have to go through considering the need to update both my Singapore and US accounts.
I have a Singapore passport (with my maiden name) and will be applying for a green card after marriage... to those who have done this before, did you use your maiden name or married name when applying for a green card? I am wondering if I will face obstacles down the line if I change all my US documents to my married name, but don't change my Singapore documents for another year or so. Is traveling difficult, or do you just carry around your marriage license?
I would love to hear from any other nesties in this similar situation. Did you find it worth it to change your name in the end?
Thank you in advance!!
