Spouse Passport???

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm the petitioner and the case has gotten approved "Thank you for your interest in immigrating to the United States of America. The Department of State's National Visa Center (NVC) received your approved immigrant visa petition from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). NVC's role is to ensure you are prepared for your immigrant visa interview at a U.S. Embassy/Consulate General, and to schedule your interview appointment."

 

Now i'm submitting in the supportive documents and affidavit of support and all that good stuff, and now its asking for my wife's (currently in mexico) passport information in which she is in the process of getting. My only concern is all the documents I've submitted prior to the case being approved have been in my wife's maiden name and not her married name. 

 

So my question is, should my wife get her passport with her maiden name since I've used that name on all her forms or will it be ok if she gets her passport with her married name even though I've been using her maiden name for all her forms I've submitted to the USCIS?

At the NVC stage you will use the exact name that is in her current passport. My I-130 had my wife's maried name (my last name), but at the NVC stage I had to use the name in her passport (Maiden Name). Colombians do not change their names to a married name, they keep their last names from brith until death. Good luck.

She can get her new passport with married name. I actually recommend it since her GC will be issued in that name and you wil save the expense of changing her name on the GC later on. Good luck!

If she wants her green card in married name she should get her passport in married name.
