    Undergoing Legal Name change(middle name) because of marriage (Philippines)

    I didn’t need to. My PR card remained in my maiden name until I applied for citizenship. But used my marriage certificate on the citizenship application. My married name is on my citizenship certificate and my passport. Again, I did not change my maiden name on my pr card at all.
