Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am sorry for your situation.
First of all, please note that before you go, you must have an I-131 travel document in place. See here
. Traveling abroad without a I-131 in place while one has a pending application will have that application dropped. As such, I am assuming that you have the I-131 in place, or will get it (normally takes about 3-6 weeks to process). You may proceed
using your maiden name and come back. The point is to have documentation
showing what you seek. Do expect to be held up at customs a bit while they verify it. However, provided that you can show that:
You have a greencard in name A, but recently have changed your name to B, and have the marriage license/court order to prove it (and have a certified copy).
Provided that the story matches and so do your fingerprints, it should not be an issue, although you may experience a 30 minute or a 1 hour delay while the authorities check out the facts.
But all in all, it is not unusual.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Удачи.
