I know there are a few topics and conversations going on about this but they are quite dated now as I believe there have been new updates on this.
I just got my citizenship approval letter through under my maiden/birth last name. Here is the problem:
My driving license, Msc degree, Bank cards, Credit cards, professional qualifications, my name on our house, my name on my loans ..... They are allllll under my marriage last name! ( Living in the UK)
So - here I am going to attend the ceremony in a month's time and apply for my first British passport.
The problem is I'm going abroad for a year to work - in my profession, I'm known as my married name.
I've been advised that now I have to use my birth name for my British passport! I really don't want too! Plus it is very complicated and almost impossible to change my last name in my birth country.
ANY advice would be much appreciated.
