    If wife kept the maiden name after marriage i.e. Family name in Q1 is same as Maiden name(last name before marriage)
    then do we need fill maiden name again in Q2 other names used or Alias(if married woman, give maiden name) or type None

    e.g. Smith, Jane Macdonald (Family, First Middle) in Q1

    then do we type "Smith" again in Q2 or type "none".

    Had used Smith as last name for I-130 petition. Passport, Birth and Marriage Certificate all have Jane MacDonald Smith.

    Please advice.

    Thank you.
