My partner and I migrated from Poland to England four years ago, and here we got married. Wife wants to take my name, and while this is a simple procedure in England, Poland is very problematic, and to sort all the paperwork would be time and money consuming (would require at least two trips just to get that done) so we are looking at alternative routes.
What we've considered is for her to change the name on English documents (drivers license, doctor offices, etc. ), and leave polish ones alone, but I am not sure what will be implications of that. Namely, we are expecting a second child, and our worry is that we won't be able to get Polish passport for that children as wife's name on the birth certificate will be different from the one on her Polish documents.
Does anyone have experience with a situation like that, and know whether it's worth the hassle? Our second option is to wait for two years when we can take the test and become British citizens, in which case we won't need Polish passports anymore.
