Hi all! Very excited to start this journey :) I was sitting here filling out the g-325a when I came across this field which is causing a bit of trouble for me:

Former Husbands or Wives (If non so state)

Family Name (For wife, give maiden name)

I am divorced and my former husband chose to take my last name (instead of the traditional woman takes husband's name, not too uncommon in Sweden), a name which he still uses.

How do I fill this field out?

I have considered putting his unmarried last name within brackets and then the name he now uses, like so: (HisOldLastName) NameHeGotFromMe.

Has anyone else had issues with this?

Sorry if this has been up before. I searched the forums but could not find anything close enough to my case.

Hopefully some of you knowledgeable VJers can help me clear this up :)

Hello teamwolfsheart,

Over the past years dealing with USCIS/NVC/Embassy, I leanred one thing; the accurate information, regardless how different it can be, will always help you and give you the strength to deal with it.

If your situation is common in Sweeden, it should be even eaiser. However, as the application may get reviewed by someone who isn't that familiar, still I think you will be fine putting his maiden name without the parenthesis too. If someone asks a question, you can always explain that.

Former Husbands or Wives (If non so state) Family Name (For wife, give maiden name) - Doe

Frist Name - John

Date of Birth ........

Thank you for you quick reply! So I just fill in his maiden name and not the name he goes by now, or did you mean to put both names?
