I recently went back from my married last name to my maiden last name. I was requested proof of evidence by USCIS. I sent them my Birth Certificate with its legal translation since I was born in Colombia. Also I wrote them a letter stating how my name should read sith my first name middle name and last name. I received my green card with my two last names since in Latin Society are used two last names the paternal and maternal. So, my green card reads 1st name middle name 1st last name and 2nd last name. How can I get my Green card to read only my father's last name if in the USA the maternal last name is not used. I spoke to a USCIS officer they advised me to submit the I-90 again! as a USCIS typo error. What sould I do? will they send my Green Card back as it is?
No divorce.I am a widow. Additionally, I never changed my last name to my married (husband's) last name. USCIS automatically started addressing me with my husband's last name.So, I explained this in my letter and they asked to provide evidence what my name is with a birth certificate, translation, passport, visa etc. which I did.When they finally approved my petition they issued my new Grenn Card with both of my parent's last name. The problem I am running into is that wherever I go to file legal documents people are under the impression my 1st last name (father's) is my middle name and that my 2nd last name (mother's last name) is my maiden last name which is incorrect.My green card shows my 1st name, middle initial, 1st last name and 2nd last name. - editI am filing another I-90 for uscis error as the uscis Officer advised me to and he also said if I wanted to include a letter explaining that in latin society we use 2 last name but here in the USA just the paternal last name is used. I don't know if they will return my Green Card as it is since that's how my name shows in my birth certificate. Currently most of my docs have my 1st, middle, and my paternal (father's ) last name only.
If your green card contains your name correctly, I would leave it as is, you will be able to change your name when you apply for naturalization. If there is a mistake in your name you can file an I90 to correct it.
I agree with my colleague
