You mean in the ROM form? For me I wrote my maiden name in the Wife's column.

They changed the form since we did ROM, on the old forms they specified the wife's maiden name, with this new form it doesn't say and I didn't see any instructions. I would lean towards using the wife's maiden name.

Yes I agree...by the way, is the ROM form really need to be notarized if submitted by mail, as stated in the requirements? But I didn't see any space for notary in the form.

We just did ours last month - sent to Washington DC Consulate since we got married on the beach in Florida. We originally put Gina's last name - her previously married name (she was widowed). When we received the Accepted and OK'd form back we noticed they changed her name on the form (using white-out and a pen) to her birth name which they got from her birth certificate we also had to send in. So nice of them to make that change for us, instead of sending it back and making us do it ourselves and send it back in.

Oh, and also - YES, ROM form needs to be notarized before sending in. Our notary just signed and stamped at the bottom of the form - there's a blank space at the bottom of the page. Good Luck!!!

They return the mail to us today.what does it mean we have to notarize all the papers they sent back or just the 4 copies of Report of Marriage?they highlighted the self-addressed-stamped envelope or pre-paid courier envelope or pay an additional US$6.00 for the mailing fee

I would say notarize all 4 copies to them. That's what I did. Do NOT just notarize one page then make 3 additional copies of that one page. All 4 copies have to be originally notarized as they want to see the "raised stamp" of the Notary on all 4 copies. I don't quite understand what you are saying about the self addressed stamped envelope. Good Luck & God Bless

I did mine just last Friday at the Philippine Consulate in Los Angeles. Maybe this information would help you:

You need to send them the return shipping envelope, addressed to yourself with postage prepaid by you, or pay and extra $6.00 for them to supply the envelope and postage.
