Middle name of LPR’s passport different than GC

Recommended Posts

My wife is from the Philippines and her middle name on her passport is different than her middle initial on her green card. When completing the paperwork for her green card we left her middle as her mother’s maiden name. She tried to tell me that in the Philippines the woman drops her mother’s maiden name and uses her father’s middle name after marriage. I told her to avoid confusion at USCIS to just leave the middle name the same.

 

I figured when we would go to up date her passport that her middle name on her green card would be able to be used on her updated passport. The Philippine consulate refuse to make her middle the same as on her green card thereby putting her father’s middle name on her passport.

 

My wife’s daughter is getting married and we need to travel to the Philippines for the wedding. Will this difference in he middle names cause a major problem with our return to the U.S?

The Philippines consulate refuse to change her name because it is the law. Research for Civil code Article 370. There are regulations in changing names for married Filipino women.

 

When applying for a Filipino passport, you are bound with philippine laws. Therefore, you cant change her passport name using the american way.

I am now aware of that. My question is does the difference in middle names between GC and passport matter when coming back into the states after traveling abroad.
