Name on passport - Should my fiancee change it?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

First time post. Currently getting all paperwork together for the visa. I am from the UK and my Fiancee is in Chicago.

We are currently using rapidvisa to help with the paperwork, so far so good (just if anyone was interested, I know there is a lot of debate around this).

My Fiancee was previously married and has not got round to changing her name on her US passport as of yet. She has had a divorce for sometime now, however it's the one thing that she hasn't done. The passport is obviously still valid and she has travelled a lot recently. If we apply now would there be a problem if her name was not changed on the passport or is it vital that she changes it before we apply?

Any help would be much appreciated.

That should not cause any problem as she declared that she was married and now divorced and it is very common for the woman to follow their husbands name. Anyway, she'll be declaring in her form that she used other names. That should not be a problem, don't worry about that.
