Hi,

 

I changed my name 10 years ago, i got a third name, like i was “Firstname Secondname” and now im “Firstname Secondname Thirdname”.

 

It wasnt because of marriage or any other reason, i just wanted a third name.

 

I got a new birth certificate, and it doesnt says its a name change, its like an original certificate with my new whole name, but with date 2008.

 

Shoud i mention this namechange in our case?

If you're referring to the I-129F or K visa interview documentation, then yes, you need to show proof of legal name change. Does your passport have the newer name with the "thirdname" on it? Also, what do you mean by a "new" birth certificate? did you get a fresh copy of the original.

Your question may have a simple answer if you explain just a bit more. But from what I can tell from the information you've provided, yes, include the new name as your current legal name and your previous name as "other names used" and also include proof of legal name change.

My passport has my new name with my third name.

 

i mean they destroyed my old certificate with my old name on it, and i got a new one with my new name.

 

i use my new name on my every official documents like bank card, id, passport, every database im in.

 
so just to be clear i picked up a third name after my original name. So i became “firstname secondname thirdname” instead of “firstname secondname”


 

like from “Jane Doe” to “Jane Jessica Doe”

Use your legal name for everything going forward with all immigration documentation. Have your most current passport available and any court documents that prove the name was changed legally. Leave the past behind you.

You bring your old BC with court papers that state that you legally changed your name. KISS. (Keep it simple S)

You need the court order allowing you to change your name.  You need a legal document to link your old name and your new name.

I have a paper what says “your old name was that, and your new name is this, and we destroy your old BC and here is your new BC”. Im gonna translate this paper and attach to our case. Will it be enough?

Yes. I legally changed my name in court. In hungary we got a new BC with the new name on it, and until this time thats the valid one and only BC.

This is an original BC, but with date 2008. It doesnt say i changed my name. After i changed, they replaced my old BC with the new one, and i have a paper from it. In my new Bc at the “birth forenames” section my new name written.

I’m pretty sure you’ll still need to show proof of previous name.. 

 

Something else you might want to consider while on this topic, is your criminal history / record check... pretty sure you’ll need to show history or clean for both names

I have a paper says “we changed your previous name to the new name” (my previous name is written on it), so it proves my previous name.

 

And i cant hide a criminal act if i did some just because i got a new name. They have it in their database, they can investigate my whole life, not only by my new name.

 

i just picked up a third name, Its not a completely new name.
