Kelli Y Allen's answer You need to change your name with social security first. Once you have the new SS card, send a copy to USCIS with form I-90 and the application fee to request a new card issued in your married name.
Kelli Y Allen's answer Unfortunately, you are in the situation of a large number of young people who need a change in the immigration laws. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program) applies to your situation, but because of the President's executive order, no new DACA applications are being accepted. This is currently being reviewed by the courts, so there is the possibility that DACA applications will resume. If you hear in the news that has happened, contact an immigration lawyer immediately....
Ashley Negrette's answer If you have a two year green card you should apply to remove the conditions on your residence (Form I-751 if you received your green card through your US Spouse) 90 days before the expiration date on the card. Once that application is approved you will receive a 10 year green card.
You should always have a valid card when you try to re-enter the country. You should contact an attorney for help.

Carl Shusterman's answer In order to adjust status, you must fill out Form I-485, along with supporting forms and documents. This form is issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or USCIS.

In your case, that means proving that you are married, and that your spouse wishes to petition for you. You may have already taken care of both things if your spouse already submitted Form I-130, Petition for Alien...
Good news here if you overstayed a U.S. visa: While most people in your shoes are not eligible to adjust status (and must instead apply for their visa through consular processing, in their home country), your marriage to a U.S. citizen basically cancels out the issue, and you can apply to adjust status no matter how long you were out of status. In fact, you'll be getting a double benefit by doing so, because if you...
