Immigration Issues/change of name

Question
I am an f-1 and got married to a USC. We are planning to file I-485 & I-130. I plan to drop by maiden name and take his surname. Am I supposed to change my name on all documents before or after filing the AOS forms.

I also plan to take a break from school. Can I do so before or after filing for Aos.

Answer
Because you are married to a U.S. Citizen, you do nmot have to keep going to school. You can use your married name as of now and change all documents and fill out all forms using your married name. Where the form asked for other names put in your maiden name.

Let me know if you want me to process the paperwork!

Regards,

Robert
