kid name change


Recommended Posts


my daughter(4 year old) is in USA on H4 visa from India. Her Last name has a mistake in passport. Her last name is XXX but on passport it is XXX YYYY. Which got carried onto her visa also. 

Now I am planning to fix her name in the passport before she goes to school. I want to remove YYYY from her last name in the passport.

To fix name in the passport, embassy considers it to be name change rather than name correction. So they are asking me to change name in state court and the apply to embassy with name change order and few other documents. 

Now if I change her name here in US, do I have to apply for h4 visa(OR NEW I94) again with new name immediately or old i94 and visa will be valid till we leave the country and then get it stamped with new name while coming back?

Please advice.
