in less than 3 hours, Consulate called and gave Wayne his passport and visa .
The kid is excited . He said he doesn't want to use his Chinese name anymore and asked me to change his name to Wayne once he arrives.
Where can I have his name officially changed in the US ?
Either through the courts (talk to a lawyer about what is required in your state), or watch for opportunities during the immigrations process. But I believe that would be possible only when he naturalizes.
Or simply start calling him "Wayne".
