8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, so my fiance (UK citizen) changed his last name a few years ago, do I have to provide proof of this? Here is the list of evidence you need and it mention name change, but I was not sure if that are for me(the petitioner) or him. Any help would be appreciated! 

 

Did you provide the following?

  • Evidence of your U.S. citizenship:
    • A copy of your birth certificate, issued by a civil registrar, vital statistics office, or other civil authority showing you were born in the United States; 
  • Evidence you or your fiancé legally terminated any previous marriages (if applicable)
  • One color passport-style photograph of yourself and one for your fiancé taken within 30 days of you filing this petition 
  • Evidence of legal name change (if applicable)

As you wish, most people include a cover page and sequence the evidence according to the sequence of the Parts of the form

Thank you for your help, I actually have one more question. So his name that he changed was his last name. It was Atkins and when his mom married when he was a kid it was changed to Warren. So a few years ago he changed it back to atkins. On his birth c. , passport, and id etc, it is still atkins. So i am still not actually sure if I need the copy of deed poll?

Actually you need to show the name change from atkins to warren as well as the change back to atkins.  You need to show the progression for ALL names used in their lifetime from birth

 

No different than if a person changed there name upon marriage and then changed it back upon divorce.  All name changes are documented

Proof of Legal Name Change if either the US Citizen and/or foreign fiance is using a name other than that shown on the relevant documents. 

 

Even though I dont have any documents with his last name Warren besides mentioning it in the section that acted for other names or nicknames?
