Help Name changed by marriage

Hello,
I am IMG and started the process on 2011 got my valid 186 and did step 2CK already on October. I was in the Green Card process and was approved on September 2011. I had two lasts name, drop one and added my husband name on the Green Card. Now I want to apply for step1 to do on May. What should I do?
Thanks a lot. Nervous about that, because is always difficult to deal with documents in my school

Thanks Sabio for your answer.

I understood that I have to send to ecfmg form 182, but my form 186 will become invalid correct?
So I have to fill another form 186 and then send to ecfmg with my marriage certificate and green card and then ecfmg will ask me to send the form 186 again to my school???

What does my school have to do with my marriage?
Thanks a lot
Manjull

If you attach proofs of how your name changed from the initial to the current one, the ECFMG will not ask you to revalidate Form 186. They'll keep it in your file and you don't need to contact your school about anything.

ECFMG will know your old name and your new name. Your old name is the name on the Diploma and your new name is the name on the passport and future documents.

However, am not sure of this. Please call ECFMG and verify with them.
