Hi Everyone, 

I am preparing for my interview and I am wondering if the C.O asks me about the name of the ex. wife of my husband what name should I give ? Should I give him/her the ex-wife maiden name or the name she gained from their marriage (name on the divorce certificate)? Please I need your input or if anyone there had the same experience, let me know. Thank you

i doubt they will care if you know your husbands exes maiden name. of all the things to worry about, id say this is not one of them.

 

know both and dont worry about it.

 

i know more about my husbands ex than i wish i did simply from filling out all the paperwork. birthday. wedding date. middle name. maiden name. divorce date.

This would be a highly unusual question / expectation.

 

Suggestion:  If asked and you dont remember, give the first name, tell them her other names are on that divorce decree but you didn’t care enough about her to check or remember what her name changed back to but you do know for sure that you cared enough about following the rules that you made double sure that the divorce was legally finalized and the divorce certificate is right there (it should be).  

 

If you don’t remember the first name?  Refer to her as “what’s her name who ______(fill in the blank with your petitioner’s name) told you about but you don’t know any personal details about her but here’s that readily available divorce decree.

 

THAT would (not) be an unusual answer.  Remember this is a conversation gauging your relationship and part of that is just how you communicate about things.  

 

NOTE:  Names of ex’s and getting them right and accurately declaring them are the petitioner’s problem, not the beneficiary’s.  

 

If there are children involved you are going to want to know all about them.  At her interview they did ask how well Nita knew and how much she knew about my (now grown) kiddos from previous marriage.
