Middle Name Changed on Marriage Certificate

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When I married my wife in the US they said that she can change her middle name on the marriage certificate in the traditional Filipino way. Meaning that her maiden name now became her middle name with my last name.

Before our marriage and on her original birth certificate and passport / Visa she had a different middle name.

Now here's the big question: When we are filling out our AOS forms now after marriage shouldn't we use her original middle name as on her birth certificate and passport Visa ?

or the new middle as reflected on our marriage certificate ?

Thanks very much for knowledgeable answers on this subject. I am sure it has been asked before here.

We appreciate your replies :)

My wife changed the spelling of her first name, adopted a middle name and changed her last name. We filed AOS in the new names per the marriage certificate as that is what she wanted on her green card.


YMMV

I used the name that i signed on my marriage certificate. The traditional Filipino way. My maiden name as my middle name now and my husband's surname as my last. I think would not be a problem, because you would be submitting a copy of your marriage certificate with the AOS packet to support that. I used my new name on my SSN as well. smile.gif
