Re. Change of name

pytbpytb NSWPosts: 10Member

Hello po. Baka po meron dito who had the same experience or have knowledge about change of name.

So sa driver's licence ko kasama yung middle name (mother's maiden last name), hindi pa ako familiar noon na middle name in Aus = second name. Now on my citizenship interview, I was advised to change my driver's license to remove the middle name since in my application I only included my given/first name and last name. Because technically here in Aus, middle name is second given name, which I don't really have.

So I went to rta nsw, gusto nila magapply pa ako for change of name sa registry of births, deaths & marriages. My PR and medicare have only my first and last name and no issues naman nung nagapply ako.

Worry ko lang is kung magkakaron ba ako ng problems pag nagpa change of name ako. Pinag iisipan ko rin kasi magdual citizen.

Any advice would be helpful. :)
