Default Change of name while 485 is pending

Hello All,

I have a big problem with my name.
My name is
Given Name XXX
Last Name BLANK
my US Visa has FNU XXX as first and last name. And so does all my US documents(485). Now i can change my last name to my husbands last name quite easily in my passport, SSN, and DL.
But my question is, is it a good idea to do this when 485 is pending. Or would it be good to wait till i get my GC and then change my name. At what stage it would be risk free to do so.

any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

we had a similar situation - I guess name can be changed while application is pending ..but as usual it will cost $$$, sleepless nights due to inefficiencies at the giant blackhole etc etc and hence we are using diff last names even when filing taxes
(but as someone said - there should be consistency)

as a solution - go ahead with your maiden name as long as it is consitent ..i.e. if it is same in passport, 485 app etc ..SSN name can be rectified.
the marriage cert will prove marriage even if you have diff last names. I agree with you though -- it is a messy situation

my suggestion (free advice) ...just wait ....till you get GC (yours is bit diff case though) .. and then deal with issues later as they come ...
