change my middle name

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When I submit my AOS several years ago, I used my mom's maiden name to be my middle name, usually in my country we use our dad's family name, few days left and I'm gonna be sending my "removal of conditions" now my question is CAN I CHANGE MY MIDDLE NAME TO MY FATHERS FAMILY NAME? IS THERE ANYTHING TO DO BEFORE CHANGING LIKE AN AFFIDAVIT OR SOMETHING?

thanks

Rules for changing names vary by state. You'll need to do some research on what your state requires. Once you have the paperwork showing your change of name you can send that with your I-751 and have your Green Card issued in your new name.

Edited for typo.

a name change is not something that can be done ... with a simple request … there are procedures associated with it… and it does vary by state to state.

In order to take you husbands last name as your last name all you need is a marriage certificate. And it doesn’t matter which country issues the certificate.

In you want to change the name anything other that your husbands last name; then you have to file a petition with the local county court and appear before a judge to do that. The requirement for name change vary form state to state but the general rule of thump is to prove that all your debtors know about your name change ( whom ever you borrow money from ) prove the intention of name change ( culture, marriage, …etc). advertise your name change in the county newspaper, and the court will wait a week or two to see if anybody has any objections about your name change ..if there aren’t any abojection then you appear before a judge to change your name. you will get a court document stating your name has chages ... you have to sent that in to USCIS as proof to change your name on the green card.
