My wife is Deutsch and has a "Green Card
" which she must have along with her Deutsch VISA und US VISA when entering this custom each time we return from overseas. I have traveled with this guy and he has never gone through the customs agents to verify his legal status. My Deutsch wife have has been in US for over 30 years and has to keep renewing her Green Card I believe every 10 years. My Deutsch wife has dual citizenship
as well. Both this guy and his wife are both from Poland and I have traveled with them many years. Never have customs detained them like they have done to my Deutsch wife to inform her when her Green Card was due to expire each time. I have 6 years of US criminal and civil law and have not been able to find anything on common law names let alone they being legal to use on and in obtaining official federal documents???? The only common law I know of that is accepted is common law marriage. To my knowledge to obtain a FFL by a foreign, even if you are naturalized US citizen or become an US citizen legally, one must use a legal US recognized name to due so. From US ARMY INTEL experience traveling covertly and overtly from behind the Iron Curtain countries, which is where current day Poland emerged from, my today travels from Poland to the US with Polish people, who use their real Polish names, are closely scrutinized by the customs agents when entering the US!!! Unfortunately Poland has been taken over many times in the 20th century! There are four main distinct group of Polish citizens that exist still exist today. They are the Polish Russian speaking community, Polish speaking community only, Polish Deutsch speaking community, Polish English speaking community, and then there are a mix of the fore mentioned communities!!! The Polish Government is a very mixed one with government officials from different communities! They do not put much attention to how the Polish people speak or change their names at will!! There is a very large of the Polish people since WWII and USSR occupation that have committed crimes against the Polish state and change everything from their names at will, misspell the city/village that they are from, to Poland's legally recognized regional names!!! I find it difficult to get official documents to use in Poland because there are so many different names in use by Poland's local governments. Even published detailed demographic information documentations on the interior of Poland vastly contradict each other!!! Ever since Poland broke away from the USSR the US has pretty much taken a blind eye to Polish immigrants into the US like they are doing with the Syrian immigrants today, very BAD POLICY!!!! Again since this guy and his wife are not routed through customs every time come back into the US, I must assume they only have US VISAS which they must renew every 5 to 10 years or so. It is my understanding in contract law that anyone living in the US, citizen or not, must use their legal name of country of origin!!! I find nowhere that the contract law says anything about using common law names, no references!!! I do find references to legal surnames, legal family names, and legal first names. The law does not let US citizens even use their middle name as their first name on official government documents, like my Uncle's birth certificate first name is ***** ***** everyone has called him Jack all of his life. This does not make Jack is legal first common law name according to my research... The only valid reason that I have been able to come up with for a foreigner to use an alias, not a common law name which I can find no reference of, is that they fled their country of origin because of illegal actions that they have committed in their country of origin and are trying to hide by blending in with US citizens... I have seen Ryszard,s first name listed as defendant as Ryszard a/k/a Richard used before. I have seen his middle initial of either J. or E. used as well. I find your response very confusing considering my finding that I have found over 50 Polish males using the last name of Hofman on social media but in their personal contact information that they list to be used to contact them through the US mail, they use their real Polish names and Poland's today accepted for their regions and towns/villages!!! Something is being overlooked in Us law or is being misinterpreted??? The only reference that come remotely close to the use of common law names is the use when you can and can not use alias names??? Do you have exact US code that can be cited to back up what you have told me??? How does one use the USCIS to verify the status of a foreigner's legal status to include legal US name to be used on official government documents??? The US Immigration
Laws or legal status of citizenship
does not pass my smell test thus far....No wonder why there are so many attorneys practicing the same micro laws in this country because you can not get any 2 to agree on with the law!!??
