"also known as"

Postby taryn » Wed Jan 19, 2011 6:25 pm

My GF's birth and marriage certs say Guerino but he died Edward. At my last consulate appointment I was instructed to change this (admittedly many years ago) but he wasn't specific. I'm finally ready to finish what I started.

Where/How would I go fix this? I'm not sure if I'm changing to Edward, or to Guerino, or if it matters. I'd hate to have to worry about my dad's and his 5 siblings's birth/marriage certificates needing to be changed someday if I go the Guerino route. My GM is still living and is willing to testify, if need be. Has anyone ever successfully received something to the effect of an "also known as" testament?

Since your gm is still living, she can most certainly write a statement saying that her husband used the name "Edward" in the US because there is no comparable English equivalent to "Guerino." This statement should be notarized. Will it be accepted? Maybe. It depends on the consulate, but I think you have a good chance in most places.
