NVC - Husband - Maiden name change necessary during DS-260?

Hi everyone!  I’m a Green Card holder and my husband and I got married 2 years ago.  He is brazilian and we are going through his immigration petition, which already was approved by USCIS and by now we are waiting for NVC mail with the next step (DS-260 form and the financial/affidavit of support form).  In this step, we will have to provide a copy of his Biographic Data Page of his valid Passport.

 

My question is:  when we got married, one of my husband's last name changed its position (i.e.: Antony Santoro Silva turned into Antony Silva Santoro). Just like that.  

Will he have to issue in Brazil a new passport, with his new name (married name)? If he does so, he will have to change his current US Visa, which has his maiden name (he gonna receive a new Visa with his married name anyway when his immigration petition gets done).  And that seems to be a lot of work and time as he will have to issue a new Visa, Green Card, SS, Driver License with his married name anyway when his immigration petition gets done.

In a nutshell: Is it ok to file the DS-260 with his married name but still having his brazilian passport and US Visa with his maiden name? 

 

Thank you so much in advance, for your time!
