Spouse Last Name change


Recommended Posts

Thanks for Quick Response.


Why do you wanna change her last name?? Its a big head ache.

She came here recently and wanted to apply drivers license/ITN IDs. Thought Change of name would help in future.


If i change her last name, Does it create any problem for existing VISA? ( existing VISA will have her old name ). what are the compilations if she travels back to come to USA with ( old VISA on old passport ) and new passport with change in name.




Your first step should you choose to opt for the change is to have her name changed in the Passport for which you will need to look for details on the Embassy site. On the other hand you do not have to change.

I inquired Embassy office, It takes 4-6 weeks in regular process. Is there any advantage/disadvantage of changing last name?
