petitioning parents

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a question. I am planning on petitioning my parents to US. I got married in US and kept my Turkish last name. In my Turkish birth certificate I am single. I have called the Turkish Consulate and they said I have two options; one take my husband last name, two keep my Turkish last name plus add my husband last name to it. Since i am using US passport I didn't bother to register our marriage to Turkish consulate.If I go through the process I have to change my SSN and Passport. What should I do? i did not think this would be a problem. any one had similar issues before?

Please help

How would you be other than single at birth :blink:

I think u should keep the same name as your birth certificate, so it would be easy to petition your parents. You can change your last name after your parents are in the US. RIGHT?

The problem is I am not registered married in Turkey. If they would keep my last name I would do it right away but in Turkey they want you to take your husband's name. So is it important if I am registered married in Turkey?

Oh, well. when you get married you suppose to change the status to married. So I am stuck. If I change then i have to change my passport ... right?

I am pretty sure the US is the same as the UK, your Birth Certificate never changes.

Well, I wish it was the same as US or UK but in Turkey you need to change because there is a question that ask marital status.

I am going to keep it. I am petitioning as American. it should not be a problem since I have my American marriage certificate.

Thanks a lot. I am so happy that I found this web page. :thumbs:
