Hi guys, I wanted to know how to complete the N-400 as there is a section that asks for the current legal name which apparently should be as per the birth certificate (BC). While applying for residency, it was never asked to provide this name from the BC, instead I was asked to provide as per my passport, so the name that I've used since then is always the name on my passport. Now the issue is like this. Let say I was born Mathew, but my passport had my name Matthew and I've always used the name in my passport as my legal name. I have all the passports from the time I was born to show the difference between my BC and the Passport. Now, what is the best way to enter my name on the application without causing too many problems?
Hello guys, I'm new to this site and need some advice. My background story: I'm an Indonesian and I've lived in Singapore between age 10 to 17. I then continued my study in the States where I met my fiancé. We dated for 7.5 years, 4 years while I was in the States and then a 3.5 year of long-distance relationship while I was living in China, Taiwan and South Korea for a year each. We took a 2-year break when I went back to Indonesia in early 2015 before we decided we wanted to be together. We've met 3 times in the last 1.5 year and we just got engaged. 1) I've been trying to find out on all the documents needed, and it says that I'll be needing police certificates from all the countries I've lived in for 12 months or more from 16 years old. So basically, I'll be needing at least 5 police certificates from 5 countries: Indonesia, Singapore, China, Taiwan and South Korea. I don't think I'll have any problem getting from Indonesia and Singapore, but my worry lies on getting from China, Taiwan and South Korea. I've read here on this forum that says I won't be able to obtain one if I'm not currently living in South Korea, getting one from China is really complicated and I’m not too sure about Taiwan. Do you think if I can provide a request letter from the Indonesian US Embassy it'll make things easier to obtain? If anyone had any experiences with getting police certificate from these countries please give some advice. And also, would I need one from the US too, because I've lived there before? 2) Another thing is my birth certificate and passport has my middle and last name typed together, but all of my US student identifications and SSN has my middle and last name separated. For example, my dad's family name is Smith. My brother's name is John Aiden Smith, but my name is Jane Doesmith. Basically I did not have a middle name when I was born. When my brother and I both applied for I-20, we wanted to avoid confusion and have the same last name. And so, we applied mine as Jane Doe Smith. I’ve also recently found out that my Indonesian ID and driver’s license have them separated too. Now I'm worried that this will be an issue. What do you guys think? Any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
