My wife's green card came in a couple days ago and we noticed the name order is not how we've been inputing it on all the forms we have filled out previously(i-130,ds-260, etc.)

We looked at her immigration visa and noticed that it is in the same order as the green card.

My wife is from Vietnam and has four parts to her name: example; Nguyen Thi Bao Chau; last(nguyen), middle 1(thi), middle 2(bao), and Given Name(Chau) This is the order in her VN passport.

 

The Visa and Green Card List:

Last Name: Nguyen

Given Name Thi Bao Chau

 

All the forms we've filled out, even for her SSN

Last Name: Nguyen

First Name: Chau

Middle Name: Thi Bao

 

So on her SSN Card it says:

Chau Thi Bao Nguyen

 

I read we could file an i-90 form to correct the name order, but it would cost about $500.  As well, I've read most if not all VN immigrants just live with the naming order on the green card, at least until they've become naturalized.

 

My question is should we change the naming order on the SSN Card to match the green card or Just leave it? Also if we change it, do we just write "Thi Bao Chau" under first name and leave middle name blank, or "Thi" for first name and "Bao Chau" for middle name?

The name on GC is correct since it based on name order of the passport. Anyone from VN with a long name like that will having same issue. Just go to SSN office and changed it like the GC, then correct the name order when eligible for N-400.
