That has been asked for before on a random basis. Not sure why the ask for it from some and not others.

Did she change to your name when you got married or to another one previously?

Perhaps the person before you gave them one so they asked for it from you.

She changed her name when we got married. The man in front of me was asked for the same certificate. Unfortunately I did not have this with me but now have a copy. The lady did take my passport. She said it would depend on her boss. She also said if I show the cert when I pick up the PP there will be no issue.

 

Lots of people being refused for various issues and various visas today. Maybe  the lady was having a bad day.

But why would such a certificate be relevant, to a visa application, if it is fact at the time of applying?

My understanding is the wife can keep her maiden name if she wants to.  My wife kept here maiden name because of all the property, credit cards, autos in her name that she ust would not have the time until she is retired to change it all.  

Same. She had to change from her former married name(she was widowed)to get married to me. After getting new card and passport decided changing her name again was too much. Non-O based on marriage to a Thai at HCMC was all ok.

Last year they asked me for my wife's Thai passport even though it had expired they still wanted to see it, had to stay an extra day and a new expensive flight when I returned with the passport the next day the new guy didn't seem to want it.

Just asked my wife about this. We have been married for 13 years.  She has no idea what this certificate is. How to get one if needed?

My wife has no idea either so I too would like to know what this form is.

I understood her maiden name changed to mine on the day we married, especially with all the paper work that was involved at the government registrar.

Not sure how she would get a copy of the name change certificate or whatever it is officially called.

She could ask at the local Amphoe (Khet in Bangkok) if they can print one out. If not she might have to get a copy at the Amphoe where it was done.

My wife certainly did not get one and I don't think one was done when we registered our marriage since she had no choice but to take my name since it was before they changed the law in 2002 giving a woman the choice to keep her own name.

Anybody here who has one, perhaps could post a scan (copy) of it with whatever personal details blacked out. Then I could show it to wife.

You shoud automatically get this paper from the district office if you legally changed your name. Separate papers for first and surname. It looks a bit like a marriage certificate except its a kind of beige colour with a diferent border. If you need one you can get at the district office.If a Thai person hs changed their name from what is on their birth certificate, they will need to show this paper to get a passport, for example.
