Changing passport last name after I-130 process approved.

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

 

When we first started the process, my wife didn't have a new passport under my last name and we used her maiden last name in every step of the way.

Now everything got approved and even an appointment date is scheduled, she changed her passport and now she has a new passport under her married name.


We just want to know how we proceed now that everything in the applications is under her maiden name and when we go to the interview she would have a new passport.

And another question, when scheduling the medical exam online, should we use the old passport name or the new passport name.

 

Thanks in advance everyone and good luck to all people out there with their processes of applications.

 

Best regards

I got married 1st of June 2017 and signed the certificate with my new name. I changed my name officially in late October 2018 so all the paperwork before that was filled using my maiden name (when asked for aliases, I would also mark down my married name). I did my medical with my maiden name (as I hadn't yet received my new passport or ID card) but to the interview I went already with my new passport. Absolutely no problem whatsover. Just grab your old passport with when going to the interview.

 

For the medical, write the same name that you have in your current passport. If she already has new passport, use the married name that is in the passport.
