My husband is using a different name from that of his registered birth certificate. What happened was his father died when he was only a year old. After 5 years, his mom remarried. Now when he started schooling, his mom and stepfather made him use a totally different name, first name and surname were changed to follow the stepfather's name, birth year was adjusted, birth place was different and his mother's name also spelled in a different way. In short, they simulated the birth to look as if he was a son of the stepfather, if that's the correct term. The thing is he was never registered under that name but he has been using that name eversince. His mom is dead now, and his stepfather left them when his mom died.
All of his government ID's, school records and employment records follow that of the stepfather's name and contains all the changed information stated above. But now that he's applying for a passport, it's getting so complicated.
What's the best thing to do? Please help us. If he transfers all of his credentials (school records, government ID's and employment records) to the REAL (ORIGINAL) NAME, would an affidavit justify everything?
