We live in USA and have no clue about how long it takes to change a Name ( Just a Middle Name ) Post Our Marriage which was in USA.
1. It takes about 3 weeks to renew her British Passport which is what you need to do if you want to change her middle name on it.
- roughly how much expense there would be for this
2. You can renew her passport at any time. It costs about £80.00 but other fees may apply since she is applying from the USA. When she renews her passport, the time left on her existing passport is added to her new one, up to a maximum of 9 months.
