In your case if the marriage certificate takes care of both the name change and marriage, you can decide

Do I need to notify name change information in newspaper also ??

Name change after marriage need not be published in the newspaper as far as I know
I did not Publish in newspapers, but of course I completed the process within a couple of days of the traditional marriage

But better to consult a lawyer and take a decision , if you have any doubts

Hi,

Thanks for this post thread. Really an eye opener ! I am a mechanical engineering who is working in IT thinking to start the process :

Do I have to submit the standard docs for ACS

I.E.
1. Engineering mark sheets and degree certificate
2. All reference letters from company or SD with termination letters from the company / First and last salary slips

You will also need to submit a RPL project report. Standard documentation will not be sufficient in your case as most likely ACS will deem your graduate degree as unrelated to your code.

You may also need an assessment from VETASSESS that you indeed can claim points for being a graduate degree holder.

Thanks Amazing Tiger for your valuable advice !

I did some research based on your advice. I believe RPL Project report is a document which would in a way tell the ACS folks how I learned and garnered the skills for my job category even if my qualification was totally different from my work.

I have close to 12 years of experience which is all in IT Companies. How many projects do I need to include in my RPL Project report ?

On VETASSESS , Isnt it for Vocational courses ? If I am planning to apply to 189 or 190 , do I still need to apply for VETASSESS.

Request if you can help me with this please !

Other expats are also free to give there advice to help me ( a new bee :-) )

Are you sure about the ACS reassessment requirement even if you get a promotion and a designation hike? (working at the same firm).

Also, is Birth certificate a mandatory document?

If you fail to get a Reference letter after all attempts, settle for a SD from a team leader or manager level who actually supervised your work on day to day basis.
Taking from a colleague is highly risky.
You may be in trouble if you get it from a person who during a verification call fails to convince how he supervised you throughout the period or was aware of your day to day RNR
I got SD form my colleague.. who is working with me but not directly managing me but he knows and aware of my day to day activities and RnR mentioned in SD ... but now this is done what to do

Thanks for sharing your experience and knowledge

I am still waiting for ITA as I have 65 points
I submitted my medicals, PCC , Form 80 and Form 1221 while uploading

There is nothing that I did differently from any one else, except that I followed all rules and not the " Chalta hai " attitude that most members have
The subsequent post to yours reinforces my point wherein Benisrael asks whether ACS is really required after promotion.

These are the short cuts which I feel delays the grant
Also as I said earlier in the post, everyone knows which documents are to be uploaded
But out of the 500 odd documents you have, how to divide them into 50 odd files is the trick
The CO when ticking boxes, should not have to search for the supporting document he needs
My file names were self explanatory and were indexed such that in a moment the document could be located
Most members upload their documents within 3 hours and are done with it
I spent 10-12 days
Moreover, my case was very complex in my opinion, as it involved several employers, spread over several countries and continents.

Despite that I think I got one of the fastest grant in recent times barring a few isolated cases, so I must have done something right

So my advise to all members is spend time in seeing the drop downs and the sub sections in the site and then choose it
Go through all your documents 10 times to check for dates and details
Do not take short cuts.

I do not know how many actually have the will to go through so thoroughly or if it is actually required

Cheers
