Changing passport to married name

Hi Folks.

My wife has a 2-year green card in her married name, but her passport is in her maiden name. This caused us some trouble while traveling back from the Philippines to the U.S. (With the airline, not with immigration). We had a certified copy of the marriage certificate with us, birth certificate, green card, etc. - but the airline still gave us a hassle.

Anyone who has recently changed their passport into their married name from the Philippines, please advise us of the least troublesome way to do so. Thank you in advance.

You have to go to Philippine Embassy and do it in person, I think it's in LA. Otherwise just carry the correct paperwork and tell the airline workers to piss off

Hi rlogan...

The least troublesome way to change her passport is to attend the Philippines Consulate outreach program in your area. That's the good news. The bad news is that you just missed the recent outreach in your area. However, they likely have an Alaska outreach twice a year. Here is the link to the San Francisco Consulate's latest outreach in Alaska. Maybe you can email them to find out when they are scheduled to return. Otherwise, enjoy your trip to San Francisco. :)

Something to keep in mind...you guys should first report your marriage to the San Francisco Consulate.

Yeah Tahoma, thanks - at the last outreach we went to for her green card their fingerprint machine didn't work and they blithely suggested we fly that night to the main office, as if that were no more troubling or expensive than a cab ride across town. I have an airplane but it's tricked out to the max for extreme bush piloting, which means it's basically useless for anything else.

At one time they had an amended passport form, but it seems they don't do it that way anymore.
