My wife (OPT) and I (H1) are from India living currently in USA and we are looking for guidance or any help regarding the order of process to be followed on changing the name in USCIS database and Indian passport.
Wife's original first name has 4 words - S K P L
Last name - B (maiden name)
But, in the passport they listed the Given Name: S K P and Last Name: B L
So, while providing the name for anything in US, people mistake L as the last name and that is eventually causing us trouble
We would like to change the complete name, get rid of other words from first name and simply make the first name as P and last name T (my last name).
I understand we need two paper advertisements to begin this process, but not sure if that is the first step in this whole process and what forms to be filled for changing the name here within US. And is there is any website that we can use for posting ads both US and in India?
We greatly appreciate any help that can be offered on this.
