C1 Passport form help please, name change!
 
http://www.britainusa.com/files/adob...9o25299o_5.pdf

The link above does not give me the answer I am looking for?

Only want to do a name change.

1.Section 10 Completed by a countersignature do I have to get someone to do that as its a name change?

2. Do I have to send in new photo's?

3.My Birth cert does not have my parents names on it was issued in 88 as mum lost the original its been through every other passport and immigration check thats all I have!!

4.Who would you suggest I send it by Courier,UPS,Fedex??

Cheers in advance :)

My "guess" is that even if you only wnat to change your name they will issue you with a new passport and therefore you'll have to send in photos...I may be wrong though..is there a help line phone number ? Could you call the Embassy in Washington ?

I was under the inderstanding that the passport stayed the same and only the name was adjusted..

But Thank you.... sure someone will chime in who has done it :)

Wondering is this is all they want

You should send your current passport and if:

a) your name has changed through marriage, you must enclose the full original civil marriage certificate bearing a raised seal. You should also enclose evidence of termination of any previous marriages.

Yes they will need to see the decree absolute or whatever its called here. They should already have details of your marriage on file...but what the hell send the marriage certificate anyway.

As far as the photos are concerned...if you still look like the person in the current photo you do not need to get them countersigned.

I think (but am not positive) that you will get a new passport, but that they will return the old one to you (obviously punched to make it invalid, etc.). I'm actually getting ready to do the same thing, but mine is also expired.

I know I called the courthouse who has our marriage certificate and the clerk knew exactly what type of certificate to produce for the passport. I think Poppygirl will have to do this. A plain old copy doesn't do it.

She's applying for a UK PP so she can't go to the courthouse...everything has to be done via the UK Embassy in DC.

Ah - I was thinking it was a US passport - my mistake. I had to call Arizona to get my paperwork, it was a pain.

I really don't think they'll need your marriage certificate...but if in doubt send it. You don't need to Fed Ex it...I took mine to the PO and got a return receipt.

Back already photo's done at walgreens its only next door lol..

I will send the marriage cert just incase I am more worried that they won't send the originals back.

I will overnight it with Fedex quicker I think!

I did see someone mention a courier once, I want it back ASAP because no GC or passport is a bit scary.
Oh the Birth cert what do you reckon?
