hi,
I had made an application along with my family in early March. I received an email a day ago asking for additional documents pertaining to "Official name change documents for my child".

My child is born in Singapore, and has never had any name change. The only difference is that his birth-certificate has our last name and his first name, whereas passport and DP has lastname, first name, father's name. Rest everything including spelling is the same.

Hence, I am not really sure what documents they are seeking.

I have dropped them an email stating the above and asking clarification, but just would like to find out from the community and experts here if anyone have had similar experience/ has any idea? Any help would be much appreciated

You will, in all probability, have to do a deed poll to create an alias for your son because you added additional words on the passport. Birth Certificate and passport/dP need to match. Else you need a deed poll to legally change it or to add an alias.

Thanks. The name on passport is as per the nomenclature followed by my home country. It is the same case for my and my spouse name, but strangely we weren't asked for this document.
Guess if that is what is needed, will get it done. Any idea on the process or time taken? As I have 2 weeks to respond back to ICA as per their letter

It's a pretty easy process and should only take a day. You need to see a lawyer to have the deed poll set up properly. My Bro-in-Law did one years ago as his Indian name and his stage name were different. His cheques and contracts were always in his stage name (Name shortened and anglicised for easy recognition) which made banking a PITA as his bank accounts were based on his NRIC/Passport. He was pretty popular in the region back in the 1970~90's with a band called the Western Union Band.

Superb, I think I will get it done assuming that is what is necessary. Will explain the situation to the lawyer and hopefully they too might be able to guide/confirm the hypothesis you have presented.

BTW, should I consider the fact they are asking for this information as a good sign for my application? Or does it mean nothing as yet

Thanks SMS for the guidance. I also called up and spoke with ICA. They person on the call informed me to put this in a letter and clarify that this is only a format difference and not actual name change, and submit it. If they still need additional information/documentation they will let me know.

Also, spoke with few lawyers and they informed that since Deed Poll cannot be back-dated, I will need to execute Statutory declaration instead of Deed Poll, though one lawyer mentioned I will need both.

For now, just waiting for ICA to respond if they need anything, and based on their response will take the next steps if needed. Keeping fingers crossed that this works out.

At least now you are on the right track. Just a temporary siding on the journey. Shouldn't be any problem other than it adding an additional step due to bureaucracy.

ICA will know about ur wife immigration status. not to worry. Since your application is not sponsored by her, not to worry.

In case if it rejected, wait for 1 year and reapply with her as the sponsor.
