My name appears differently on my driver’s license, passport, and social security card

U.S. Immigration Legal Advisors in Bangkok, Thailand answers frequently asked complex American Visa questions

Question: My name appears differently on my driver’s license, passport, and social security card than on my birth certificate and USCIS is asking for a name change certificate, but I have never officially changed my name.

Answer by U.S. Immigration Legal Advisors in Bangkok Thailand: A letter to USCIS explaining how your name was entered differently on your driver’s license, passport, and social security card will satisfy them. USCIS personnel are sometimes unaware that certain government agencies issue documents based on information entered on an application form, that you complete, rather than on information contained in other official documents, like your birth certificate. For example: your birth certificate could show your name as James Anthony Massino, but your passport could be in the name Tony Massino, based on how you completed your passport application.
