H4 visa - change of name from maiden to married

Recommended Posts

My  wife has Surname field blank  in her passport (India) and first name as abc xyz , She holds H4 visa which has her name as FNU (at first name place ), Given name (at Last Name place). Now we are planning to change her name in passport from maiden to married , where she can take my surname , however our marriage certificate has her maiden name.  This is creating lot of confusion if we should go for her name update. Can passport be update with maiden name in marriage certificate if it can be, then having maiden name in marriage certificate can affect H4 visa extension stamping ?

Yes, She can use her maiden name if she wants to correct her FNU issue.

thanks , but for that we need to go for name split instead of change of name from maiden to married to update passport?

Change her passport name appropriately. Maiden Name and Surname or Maiden Name and OR Maiden name and your surname, whatever is acceptable to the Embassy.
