Legal Question

Asked on: 1/07/12, 1:08 am

Does the US recognize a name change in a foreign country?

If a permanent resident of the US go back to his home country and legally change his full name (without an US court order), does the US recognize such name change?

What if the name change is not made by the foreign court, but a government department of the foreign country (It is legally recognized in that foreign country.)? Would a passport of the foreign country with the new full name be enough to prove the name change?
