Changing Middle Name

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

Hi everyone. I recently married my K1 fiancee and am preparing to file her AOS. My question concerns changing her middle name. She is a Filipina and tradition there is for the bride to assume her husband's surname and to change her original middle name to her former surname. Does anyone have any experience with this? She currently has no paperwork in her new name so I am assuming that this would be a good time for the name change. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Rick

Yes, she should used your last name now that you were married. So her new name will be -First Name-Maiden Name-Husband Last Name-.

Goodluck!

There is no should do anything. If she plans to use her married name as her legal name and work under that name then change her last name, otherwise nothing requires her to change her last name to her husband's last name.

With the middle name she has a few options. Keep the one she has now, use the maiden name or drop it all together.

Just make sure she puts the name she intends to use on the immigration forms and reports the change to SSA to correct her SSN record. Plus be she to keep using that name for everything else.
