My mom is not married to my dad, but for some reason, she used my dad's last name since the day they lived in together. So on my birth certificate and my brothers', her name appears with my dad's last name. My brothers and I have the same last name as my dad.
My problem is I am planning to bring her with me abroad, so she will have to apply for a passport. And I'm thinking that the DFA might ask her for a marriage certificate, which she won't be able to present since there's none. So we thought of her applying for a passport using her maiden name so that there would be no problems when it comes to the documents.
And then I thought once she is able to get a passport, the immigration officer at the airport might try to establish our relationship since her last name would then be different from mine. They may ask for my birth certificate, and it will show that her last name on my birth certificate is the same as my dad's (as if married) but her passport will show her maiden name.
Anything you can help me with, I'd truly appreciate. Thank you!
