Under some circumstances, names of the same individual may vary in different documents. If you are in the process of filing a petition with the USCIS, an affidavit explaining that you are one and the same person may be required. This may require an Affidavit which contains your current full name, your religion, birth date, birthplace along with your old full name and the reason why is it different on some of your documents.
