Re: Advice needed: US citizen changing name following divorce

According the Swiss IPGR https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...index.html#a37
you must start the name change process here.

After that you can get a new U.S. social security card.
https://faq.ssa.gov/en-US/Topic/article/KA-01981
and apply for an new U.S. passport either using Form DS-82 or Form DS-5504 if the passport was issued less than 12 months ago.
https://ch.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen...dult-passport/

The U.S. might have an other view on this and might mandate that you start the name change from the U.S.
