Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** ***** Moore. I am about to apply for a KLN. When I renew my passport I will need to make a name change. I can not change my name on my passport yet because I have a trip to Tahiti booked under the name on the passport and all travel documents have been printed. Will I be able to update my KTN when I change everything over or will I have to go through the process again? Also, my drivers license and social security are already changed. Will this affect my application for a KLN?

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I think that's everything.

Hello, and thanks for requesting me to help with your question.

Do you have a GOES card and included with that, is TSA Precheck, with a KTN?

If you're going to get a new passport with a name change and you have also changed your name on your driver's license and social security card, if you currently have a GOES card, you don't have to go through the entire registration process again, but you can update your information in your GOES profile to reflect your new passport information; you will have to provide them with all the documents leading to your name change (marriage, divorce, etc.) and pay a $25 fee to receive a new GOES card reflecting your new information, PASSID OR KTN.

If you don't have a GOES card or TSA Precheck yet, and are applying for Precheck for the first time, resulting in the issuance of a KTN, don't apply until you renew your passport with your name change and then all documents will have the same information and you shouldn't encounter any problems. Just keep in mind that everything needs to match.

I hope this helped and if so, please rate positively so I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much.

Warmest regards,

Cher

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
