Hi Guys, While filing the Visa, I was updating my partner's details. Got stuck at one place - Her name has been updated in passport post marriage (same is in marriage certificate) however other documents as adhar card and PAN card have her maiden name still. While applying Visa when I fill the details for national identity and other identity documents should I write her post marriage updated name or maiden name which is present in both the documents?
Also for the question does she hold some other name, should I be entering her maiden name? Please advise.

Thanks

If I were you, I would avoid using any document which still has her maiden name as far as possible
I would have Used birth certificate or school leaving certificate instead which anyways were supposed to only have maiden name forever

In the mean time get the name updated in PAN and Aadhaar ASAp
It's an easy and quick process and I am surprised you have not done it so far

As far as the question on answering if she was known by any other name, you have to give her maiden name where ever asked

Cheers

As newbienz said fill maiden as per the documents... Get a Declaration like this :

Believe it or not I had my names as expanded initials at one place, not expanded at another, only one initial expanded and so on....

My Aadhar is different from PAN, PAN is different from Passport and Passport is different from Aadhar and so on..

All these are taken care of with the help of above one declaration

Whatever details you are filling, fill it as per in that document

DIBP knows that people get married and women often change their names after marriage. As long as there is something to link her maiden name and her married name, that will be fine. For example, the marriage certificate may list her maiden name and also her husband's name which would create this link.
