Updating passport uk Amanda m hotchatdirect
Hello, yes you will need to update the name on your marriage certificate, and the marriage certificate is valid proof of name change even though it doesnt specificly list the that, that is your new name I am helping an elderly friend get a replacement SS card (after many yrs and 2 marriages) so that she can get Medicare. She has a first and middle name which is what her birth certificate shows.
thru her life she combined the two names into one and basically assumed that as her first name but never changed it legally.
So, her marriage certificate, passport, bank accts etc all show this assumed first name and her husband’s last name.
Now when trying to get a SS card they say it will show first, middle and huband’s name.
If yes, I have my marriage certificate but it does not reflect my married last name.
What additional documents (if any) do I need to submit in order for my name to be changed on my passport?
From time to time printing errors occur on the passport, and would need to be corrected using a passport name change.
You will need to submit proper documentation that shows the change. We were able to use the Marriage Verification Letter.
Name changes are done via mail, if you find an acceptance agent who is willing to see you in person, you still need to surrender the marriage certificate and it will be returned once the passport is released.
Your passport is an essential travel document, which you cannot go abroad without.
Did you just get married or perhaps you have been divorced?
Requesting a passport name change from and State Department is a simple process.
Assemble all of the required materials, including proof of name change, your current passport, and the fee payable to the U. In most cases, it is recommended you mail these with return receipt requested.
