Married AND Maiden Name in Passport

Hello,

I will be traveling internationally next week and i have a problem. My Passport has my Married name (i got divorced almost 3 years ago) AND my maiden name. I booked the ticket in my maiden name because i have a paper from the court stating that i can resume my maiden name. I did apply for a new one with just my maiden name in it but it will take almost 6 months!! to get it. Will i have any problems with customs etc? Please help.

I'm really surprised that it would take 6 months to get your new passport. I've usually received mine within a month of application. You can also pay for expedited service. Possibly within your time frame.

No, my passport is a german passport. It says name : my married name maiden name: my maiden name and first name: my first name. All on the first page. I don't have anything in the back of my passport. I have court paper saying that I can legally change my name to my married name.

No I have a german passport. It says name: my married name. Maiden name right under it: maiden name and fist name: my first name. I don't have anything in the back. I do have a court paper saying that I can change my married name to my maiden name. It takes 6 months for the passport because they have to send papers from the german embassy over to Germany and correct everything ( that I was married etc) they told me at the embassy that will take 5-6 months.
