My daughter is a US citizen who just got married last week.

My daughter is a US citizen who just got married last week. Her husband was here on a student visa and now has a work visa here in the USA for a year. My question is this, "if she kept her maiden name and did not change it to his, would that raise suspicion during the immigration interview?She's in college right now and was wanting to wait until after college to change her last name to his. Would she be able to wait for name change or should she do it now?

I got divorced in may of 2016, she initially stayed living

I got divorced in may of 2016, she initially stayed living in the same house and she asked to stay on the medical insurance which I agreed to since she still had the same name. I went to do a change of policy form with the insurance after she moved back home and got her name changed back. Somehow the wrong dates got entered into the form that I sent in and the policy got messed up. I wanted to work to get it fixed but the people I talked to were not helpful and I told them I didn't need the headache and to please just cancel the whole policy. My question is, is it possible I could get into serious legal trouble over this mistake? They said I had put down that I signed the document in June of last year when I only received in the beginning of December. They said I had put that the divorce happened in December, and that I had requested the policy change be back dated to January 31st of 2016. These are not the dates I recall putting in the form, but I admit to not double checking them when I printed out the sheet. All I want to find out is where I stand legally.

My sister and I are co-executors to my fathers estate. After we opened the probate, we noticed that they added an "s" to the end of his middle name. Apparently it was typed incorrectly this way on his death certificate and we didn't notice. Do we need to get a new death certificate and get all of this corrected at the probate court?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: DelawareJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: If you mean any claims against the estate, I have not seen anything.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of.
