If you love your wife its best to make it as difficult as possible for her to leave.

That's how I see it.
;D ;D ;D

Like I said already, you can.
But clearly Mrs AJK never switched her license.
True, Good to hear two reports of it not being an issue.

Lol!


Anyhow, thank you everyone for your input, my wife's app for GE was submitted with her maiden info, so that solves that! (Looking to travel within the next month or 2, so to have GE before that with changing passport with not paying expedite fee nearly impossible)

You can do GE with mismatching license and passport? Or you just never switched the license?
As i have posted in the GE thread, ny wife applied for GE under her new name, and at the interview she was told that it will be issued under her maiden name to match her passport, and when she gets a new passport she has to stop by a GE office (without an appointment) to have her name updated

So I did it the other way, I submitted under her maiden name.

That's fine. It goes by the PP. You would want to bring the marriage license to the interview to explain the DL though.

Good idea to bring the marriage certificate, thanks!

They may not look at it, but they definitely should officially.

I know this was already discussed, but people at Social Security office claimed that old passport is invalid once you change your name with them. Sounds like they don’t know what they’re talking about, but can anyone provide DPs?

Thanks.

I can. They're wrong.

(Didn't get a new SS card, just notified them of a legal name change as required.)

Any reason it would be different if ordered a new card?
