If your current legal name is different from the name on your civil birth certificate (e.g., your maiden name), then you must show legal proof of the name change. Legal proof = Certified marriage or civil union certificate, divorce decree or court order linking the new name with a previous name.

Note: A divorce decree may be used as authority to resume using a previous name only if it contains the new name and the previous name and permits a return to use of the previous name.

Certain documents may require proof of legal US presence.
All documents must be ORIGINAL or CERTIFIED COPIES, in English, and have the required state and/or municipal seals.
Certified copies of New Jersey records are available from the municipality that originally issued them and from the State Bureau of Vital Statistics at or (609) 292-4087. If your birth certificate is from Jersey City/Hudson County you must check or call (888) 486-3339.
