Me and my Husband are preparing the paperwork for Immigration. How I should sign the forms?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Montague, MI

Me and my Husband are preparing the paperwork for Immigration.
We filled the forms with my married last name but we are not sure about how I should sign the forms..... on my married certificate the court said that I should write my new name as married where I supposed to put my signature (we did it).

a. Do I should sign like in my passport as single ?, or
b. Do I should sign with my married name? (new signature), or
c. Do I should write my name with my married last name like in my marriage certificated?

I say "should", because there may be other issues in your file which I am not aware of. So if there is any uncertainty, it is best to contact an attorney to assist you.
