Does the beneficiary get an American passport?

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am the US citizen. My fiancee is the foreign beneficiary.

When we get married, she wants to change her last name to mine.

I imagine then she'll need a new passport.

She currently has a Dutch passport. Would she get an American passport, or another Dutch passport?

Hello, I am the US citizen. My fiancee is the foreign beneficiary.

When we get married, she wants to change her last name to mine.

I imagine then she'll need a new passport.

She currently has a Dutch passport. Would she get an American passport, or another Dutch passport?

Okay, you need to step back a bit. There's two issues here.

The first is that your fiancée will want to take your surname upon marriage. As I understand it, in New Jersey, this is done simply by her beginning to use your name (presuming that you're a man—same sex marriages have different rules), but this would best be verified just by contacting your municipal clerk.

The other issue is whether an American marriage changes your wife's surname in the Netherlands. My preliminary research indicates that she may choose to go by your surname, but it does not actually legally change her name anywhere. This is just pulled from Wikipedia:

The current law in the Netherlands gives people more freedom: upon marriage, both partners default to keeping their own surnames, but both are given the choice of using their partner's surname, or a combination of the two. For example, if a person called Jansen marries someone called Smit, each partner has the choice to call himself or herself Jansen, Smit, Jansen-Smit or Smit-Jansen. The preferred option will be registered with the municipal registration, without giving up the right to use one's original name, which remains the legal name.

The second issue regarding an American passport: she is not an American citizen. She's not getting a US passport just for marrying you. Honestly, she gets nothing for marrying you, but instead becomes eligible for you to begin the lengthy and expensive process of adjusting her status. (Since I see that you've already got your K-1 visa, you're already familiar with lengthy and expensive USCIS processes.) Just look at wbeem's link.

If the Netherlands will actually issue her another passport making note of her married surname is a question best answered either by the Municipal Basis Administration (Gemeentelijke Basis Administratie) back in the Netherlands, or, if she's already here, by contacting the Dutch Consulate.

After the K-1 issued she will travel to the US and marry YOU.

When that is done, she will adjust status to a permanent resident and obtain her green card http://www.visajourney.com/content/k1k3aos

AFTER a few years (and other processes) she can apply for citizenship

good luck

Matt,

First step for her is to get the K-1 visa, enter the U.S. (on her current Dutch passport), and get married

(to you.) Then, she can/will change her last name. In The Netherlands, this is usually done using a

hyphenated form: Mary Steenburgen will then be named Mary Hubbiename - Steenburgen. In the

U.S., this can either be JUST your last name, or with her maiden name tagged on.

Once married, she can get registered with SSA under her new name - they want to see her original

passport, AND the document that proves the name change, in this case the marriage certificate. Once

you have the SSN and the card, you can usually apply for a drivers license / state ID. That will also

be in her new name if you mention that to them - they will, again, need both her passport AND the

document that proves the name change.

Then, you file for AoS/AP/EAD, and you can include both her names in that paperwork. Her "full

name" would then be her married name, and for "other names" you add her maiden name.

After AOS etc is completed (meaning, she gets her 2-year green card), she has that in her new

name.

Two years after that, she files for RoC, which results in her permanent green card.

Sometime after that, she COULD file for naturalization. Since she is married to a U.S. Citizen, she

can keep her Dutch nationality as well (Holland allows dual citizenship in certain cases; being

married to a foreign national is one of those.) Naturalization results in a U.S. passport being issued

to her, of course.

She can request a new Dutch passport at any time after her marriage, but I'd wait until after AOS at least,

because of the original K-1 visa stuff in her current one.

If you (or she) has questions, feel free to PM me. :P

Thank you very much Fred. I really appreciate the easy-to-understand timeline of events that you posted. The fact that you are Dutch as well really helps too, for my/our particular situation.

I may take you up on your PM offer sometime; or perhaps my fiancee (Marsha) will, who uses my account too.

Matt

The best part is that once she's here and you've married , the rest of the stuff is done together.
