Which last name is the father’s last name?
I often get asked about how to enter last names into the computer. Let me explain. Hispanics sometimes use two last names. Their mother’s last name and their father’s last name. So naturally, when you get an identification card with two last names, you would question it. It totally makes sense. So what do you do with that information?
When you receive an identification card with two last names, just ask which name is which! It is important to enter the correct name into the computer because we do not want to create aliases for people. Especially if they are applying for loans, licenses, etc. Hope this helps.Quick tip
