Hello VJ family,

I am a Mom and naturalized citizen to a minor child. He has the last name of his biological father as shown on the birth certificate. He got here and got his green card with last name same as his birth certificate. 

After he got here, I already changed his Last name to match my Married name. We have here the Last name change decree on hand. 

What will be the next process for him to obtain the US passport?

Do I need to have his Last name changed on the green card first then apply for N-600? And then, apply for US Passport? Please advise. Have a blessed day all!


🌷Came to US in the Spring of 2013 thru K-1 Visa🌷

Citizenship completed in the Summer of 2017

😊Applying for IR2😊

How did you change his name?  Via the courts?


YMMV

If child is living with you legally in US when you naturalized he is already a citizen. No point changing the green card now.

 

I don’t know about the name change issues, but you can apply for a passport directly with evidence of your naturalization and proof of custody, instructions are in the passport instructions. N600 is advisable too but not absolutely necessary if you have a passport.  I applied for a passport for my child along with my own the same day I naturalized.

 

fyi other experiences of passport/child passport applications are discussed here https://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/158-passports-etc-what-to-do-now-that-you-are-a-us-citizen/

Thank you for your response. 

My son was not here yet when I was naturalized. I petitioned him after my naturalization. He only has green card now. 

Can I apply directly for his passport but we will provide the name change decree from court?
