My question involves name change laws in the State of: CA
I was born as (example) John Smith.
My mother's last name is Johnson.
I applied for a social security card 30 years ago.
For Social Security, my name became John Smith Johnson.
Johnson as my Last Name, Smith as my middle name.
**Now I have a problem:
My passport name was also changed but it shows:
SMITH JOHNSON as my last name. Bunched up. No middle name on passport
Social Security Number/Card shows:
SMITH as Middle name. JOHNSON as last name.
I want to get everything the same. Should I change my social security card or passport name? How do I do it? Cost does not matter at this point. What is easiet, in your opinion?
