We are filling forms i-130 and form i-485. My husband is the sponsor.
Thanks for the response!

It appears that you are attempting to file a concurrent I130-I485 petitions to lead to permanent residence based on Marriage to a United States citizen (your husband). You will most likely have an interview at the USCIS office in Detroit, Michigan. During this time, the officer will assess both the I-130 and the I-485. Part of the assessment is whether the marriage is "bone fide", which is a legal term meaning in essence, whether the marriage is real or not, according to the Immigration rules. Changing your last name does not really address the issue of whether the marriage is real. The officers, at least in the Detroit area, are more concerned whether you reside together and other factors. A second part is the actual eligibility for permanent residence (I-485). I mention this because identity does form part of this assessment (which relates back to your question about your name and signature). This is only a partial answer. Every case is unique and to preserve your privacy and to ensure I can offer a complete answer, please contact or email me.
