Change Name


My wife has been granted a provisional partner visa (Subclass 309). She is planning to change her last name to my last name.
We have ask the embassy to change the name on the passport, but they advice us to contact Immigration of Australia to ask if they would allow her to change her name and if it will not affect the status of her visa.

Is anyone have encounter this situation before and can give me a advice on this??????

Thanks for the reply
