Not a problem. i'm from Mexico and we have two surnames: from the father and from the mother, beginning with the father's.
Writr down the name like this:

Juan Perez Lopez

Perez is the surname of the father and Lopez is from the mother, if you write as a middle name, then you are considering the major surname as secondary!
