Will my daughters name change impact my immigration status? 2 Answers as of May 23, 2011I have already sent my application for Citizenship, but I have a question regarding my daughter’s last name, during my marriage I got a daughter and find out later that my husband was not father, we changed legally her name to her biological father's last name, of course with my husbands consent. This will affect my citizenship, or they will bring it up on my interview.

I don't see a problem there. If it is brought up then you just have to explain it the way that you just did in your question. If they do not bring it up, then you do not bring it up either. As an aside, I believe your daughter is still your husband's child by law, regardless of her last name. this is because she was born in his household and to his wife. But that is neither here nor there. Good luck!
