As the title says, my certificate has no middle name but my passport has one, my background was that on my birth certificate no father is listed and took all the middle name and last name from my mom, will that be a possilble issue?

Hello again guys, i really need your opinion on this topic, to be clear 

Here is my full Name

(Edited to remove personal info)

that’s the full name that shows up on my passport, Driver’s license and Social Security Card. So my question is how should I fill up the information about me, do i have to put my first 2 names on given name, and put the M as middle name? 

 

My mom was not married and i also checked my birth certificate that no father was listed so i’ve been using her last name and also her middle initial. 

 

I’m so confused right now and this is the only one that holding me back on filing my k1 visa

 

any responses will be greatly appreciated!! 

Thank you and Godbless!!

Your naturalization certificate only lists a first and last name?    But you have a middle name on all your other documents, including your U.S. passport?   Your naturalization certificate rules in regard to legal name, little surprised that your passport does not match the name on your certificate.

 

Did you complete a name change petition, N-4XX, during your naturalization process?

Well my naturalization certificate the letter M got omitted even tho i have it on my social security, license and passport, i’ve been writing my name like that eversince i got here in america, and I haven’t done any name change petition or anything. That’s why im kinda hesitant to file my K1 visa application because of it, im not really sure if i should fill up the given name with the 2 names and letter M on the middle name to match my passports and id’s or break my 2 names and put one on each on given and middle name to match my naturalization certificate :(

Use your LEGAL name regardless how it is spelled on a variety of your ID's. Everything ties back to the LEGAL name document. If that document has errors then it will require you to proceed to repair that document.

By LEGAL NAME document, from my passport or my citizenship certificate? 

 

Thank you very much for replying!

Birth certificate is one. If married then the marriage certificate.  If divorced and you reverted to another name then divorce papers. If you went to court and changed your name then your court papers. Now I hope with this information you can figure this out.

So that I am less confused.  On your passport and such you have two names as your first name, the letter M as you middle name, then your last name?  But on your naturalization certificate you have one name as your first name and the other name is shown as your middle name, with no letter M ,  then your last name?      

 

Ultimate legal document in regards to name is your naturalization certificate (unless you did a legal name change in court later)

 

Still curious how you got your passport issued with the M included.   When you completed the DS-11 did you list both names as your first name, add the letter M as your middle name, then your last name?    < If yes, it is a goof up on your part for not copying the name as shown on the naturalization certificate and DHS for not catching the :oops: .

 

I would think that some point you would want all of that corrected.

In this case the Naturalization Certificate TRUMPS them all!    Unless married or a court process after .
