You should



Sir, do you think I will not have any issues when i present both passports even there ii a little bit of difference in the name stated on my passports?


Not a U.S. immigration question.

Mr. Shusterman is a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) with over 35 years of immigration experience. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.


Good quesiton for the Phil. lawyer.
