My Wife arrived on 18 Dec 2018 on K-1 Visa, we married on 31 Dec 2018.  She holds a Japan Permanent Resident ID and has Philippine Passport in her maiden name. She wishes to change her name on her passport to her married name.  It does not expire until 2020.  Her Japanese Permanent Resident ID is still in her maiden name.  I am finishing up the work on her Green Card application and will be submitting in March. She also has her Social Security Card already.  Can she do this at one of the Philippine Consular on Wheels since we live near Seattle and the nearest Philippine Consulate is in San Francisco.  Not sure if there will be any problems with her changing her name  but any advice or assistance would be greatle appreciated!!

In order to that she will first need to file for a ROM in order to get your marriage recognized by the Philippine government. Then you can get the passport in her married name. You will have to sign up for the mobile clinics that the consulates do and the spots fill up quick.

Complete all documents for AOS (Adjustment of Status) in her married name.

 

For your wife to change her name on her passport y'all will have to complete ROM (Report of Marriage) first, or at the same time as the passport renewal if you are doing this both in person at an outreach event or at the consulate.
