This question had me stumped too as I wondered if it pertained to names used since birth or perhaps names used since having been in the US.

Put all names used since birth and enclose supporting documents when name changed. I had more name changes than would fit on the form so I wrote in the first filed "See Attached Paper". I typed all the neccessary information and printed it out so it looks more professional than just hand writing then I paper clipped that page to the page of the form.

If you are going to need additional paper to give more information make sure you put at the top of that clean white page the following info

Name

A#

Date of Birth

The question and page number to which your answer page pertains - Page 1, Part 1, Section C

Then fill in all names used since birth

Then write underneath that "All supporting documents enclosed.

Might sound like overkill but it's what I was told to do when I called the USCIS to clarify this one.

Well you have the space to fill in that field without needing to add another piece of paper.

Pay particular attention to Page 4, Part 7.

A & B refer to time outside the states in the last 5 years but C refers to time spent outside SINCE BECOMING A LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENT.

That one almost bit me.

My wife came here on a fiance visa in 2008. Are you saying that we should list the time she lived in Brazil for a year during the five year period? IE, she's been here for 4 years. So I'm supposed to count the days prior to that?

From my understanding (and previous readings) the "five years" actually becomes "three years" for those of us applying based on 3 years of marriage to USC rather than 5 years. So for example I apply in 2013. I moved here Sept 2009. So if you did "time outside the US for 5 years" then many days of mine were of course before I immigrated and if i entered that it looks like I've been out longer than I have.

ALL questions pertain to "since being an LPR" is the rule (so i've read, someone correct me if I'm wrong). So I've (presently) only been out for 66 days, i do not count time prior to immigrating.

No. If you're applying based on the 3 year rule everything becomes "3 years" rather than 5. The rule of thumb is "since being an LPR". Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but that's what I've been reading.

That's the way I read it and a search here at VJ seems to support that.

Well for hubby, his name is Ahmed but has always went by Adam since I first met him. His family calls his Adam too... so even as far back as applying for K3 back in 2006 when asked what other names used, we put Adam on our K3... so for his N400 on that section he did the same thing and put Adam in the section for other names used. All my family calls him Adam, he's called Adam at work and is known by Adam even though legally he's Ahmed.

Yes, everything (addresses, trips, jobs etc.) becomes "for the last 3 years" if you apply based on marriage.
