another stupid question

Recommended Posts

so i was talking to my fiance and asked him for the family name (Amin) that i should put on the application and he gave me the name but then when he faxed me a copy of his passport it had a different name (Hassan). should i just put the last name as listed from the passport on the application as the last name or the name that he gave me - which does not seem to be anywhere else? also how do you list the 4 names that the ME/NA people have on the application? do you just list first name and then next 2 names as middle names? i am so confused. I am already to send the application out and then this happens.

thanks and sorry for the confusion... :unsure:

hmm well if i were you i would call my fiancé and ask why there are two different "family names"... if that's not a possibility i guess i would use the one on the passport...

Does his name on his passport match the name on his birth records? Because he will also need to use this name when he files an application at the embassy for his visa after the approval here in the states.

I can't answer the question regarding the 4 names, maybe one of the other women going through Egypt can.

I can tell you that the Department of State will be double checking the I129F / G-325A information and comparing it to his application for his interview at the embassy level...and it all had better match or they have a reason to return the entire file.

I hope someone else going through Egypt can answer your questions and ease your mind...better to be safe than sorry. Good luck.

You are going to want to use the name that is on legal documents that they require. This will be birth certificates, passports, Indentification cards, divorce decrees. Hopefully they have all of the same information. Make sure to note all information is correct and matches. Birthdates, numbers, parents names, anything and everything. If they don't match it is important that you take the time to have your husband go to the correct authorities to get them all correct and matching.

Good luck!

Not sure about the different last name things, but we listed all 5 of my husband's names on the form. However, when he came to the US and applied for a social security card, they made him pick 3. So, apply with whatever his birth certificate says, but be prepared to shorten it once he gets here.

You have to be really careful about names and getting them correct. I would list the name that's on his passport and birth record like others have suggested. My husband has 5 names but we only used 3 on his petitions and applications. His first, middle (his father's name), and his last (family name).

OK so what's with all the names anyhow? I mean I was gonna get him a backpack and have it monogrammed for his birthday but I'm like, geesh....which of those 5 initials do I put on there?

I joked with him and said, "ya know...by the time I say hi to everyone in your family it'll be time to leave!!" :lol:

Thanks to everyone who responded to my question. I think that I will take your advice and put his name down as listed on the passport. I have a copy of his birth certificate but it is all in arabic and have to get it translated into English before I am completely done with this name business. :blush:;)

My fiance has 4 names too, the way I presented it was this way

Last Name (Family Name)

First Name

Middle Name (I put the 2 names in the middle as his middle name and it was no problem at all)

Also I would use whatever the name is on his passport. This is what he will be known as going forward, so if it was an error he needs to go have it corrected before filing. My fiances first name is spelled differently on his passport and he decided not to change it and we filed that way. So its just a personal decision you have to make. However it was only the spelling of his first name, not a whole different name. I think he should get that corrected. :star:

Most names are first name, father's name, grandfather's name, great grandfather's name, etc, family name. So, however many ancestors names they want to put in, the name just continues to grow.

My husband chose to use his name, his father's name and his family name for purposes here.

Marlene has 2 last names. They let us put both on the SS card. Her last names became her middle names after we married and they let us put both middle names on the card when we had it updated.
