U.S citizenship proof

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Birth Certificate says Father\s last name, but used mother's last name since a child. All documents such as school, medical, state id, passport have mother's last name. Which is my last name, but it was never legally changed. Now this brings some concerns as it says submit documentation of legal name change... What should I do... All my things are in my mother's last name, like i said passport, all my things

(sorry this question wasn't written better, Just now sure how to ask or word this question

What if you just use the passport for your proof of citizenship since it's under the name you use, and in the meantime see what you'd need to do in your state to get an amended birth certificate issued?


The Story So Far:

Sep 2009 - Met at University in UK

Apr 1 2011 - Engaged!

Apr 18 2011 - Sent I-129F...hoping for the best.

Apr 29 2011 - NOA 1 - California Service Center

Jul 14 2011 - NOA 2 (76 days after NOA 1)

Yes, submit a preferably color copy of all pages of your US passport as evidence of US citizenship. Doesn't sound like there was any name change, from what the OP has written. They used the mother's maiden name as family name from day one.

No, they don't. They require her birth certificate. Your US Citizenship is established with a copy of all pages (even the blank ones) of your US passport.

No, your passport copies do not need to be notarized.
