Passport Name Change? - Confirmation

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good Morning VJ!! Hope everyone is having a great day today!! Just wanted to clear and confirm regarding my wife's passport info. She currently has Passport however it has her maiden name. All of our paperwork thus far has her maiden name. I am not planning to change her name (Married name) until she comes here. However she stated she called the Passport Place and was advised that she must change it being that she was married.

I really do not want any Snags at all and I truly believe that it is a Racket (sad to say but it is!!).

So my question is, would this present any type of issues at this stage? Are we making the correct decision to just leave it be and then just make the changes once she is here?

Thank you in advance!!

Hi Gracenp2,

I personally thing you should leave it as is, for the simple fact that you don't want any confusion at this stage with different change of name... Also remember at this point women are not under any type of OBLIGATION to change there maiden name to there (married name) This is a personal preferences, And also an timer (where the women marriages and takes her husbands name)

What I advised is you can wait until her passport expires and then renew it with her new last name (married) Or change it at the time once she enter USA.

But if I'm not taken she can update her passport here in USA... check travel.gov.

If i were you I would hold off just for the sake of the confusion with the name chance in the process.

Remember just the same way you submitted all forms, from USCIS to the last stage that is how all her document will arrive. (under her maiden name)

Now once she is in the USA and you want to change her maiden name to marriage name you can simple do all this with the Social Security office, DMV(State ID) And proper documents....

Good luck on your decision...
