My marriage is now officially registered in Taiwan, so we are starting to look ahead. Ultimately, my Taiwanese wife and I will be moving back to the United States several years from now.
In the US, she doesn’t use her Chinese name except on formal documents. Instead, she uses an English name followed by her family name.
Since we are now married, is it possible for her to officially change both her given name AND family name at the same time? How would one go about doing this?
I was thinking she could get the Romanized name in her Taiwan passport changed, leaving her Chinese name the same. The reason being she could use her Taiwan passport as a basis for changing her new English names in the US. All she’d have to do is show her passport when filling out the forms.
Ideally, she’d like to continue using her Chinese name in Taiwan, but start to use her new family and given English names in the US.
I haven’t seen this question before, and I’ve never heard of changing a given name. Thanks in advance for anyone who can help with this matter.
