G-325A minor mess-up (merged)

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just noticed that on my G-325A that I have messed up the section where it says family name and first name of mother and father. I mixed them up only on my part (the petitioner). I also did not include my mother's maiden name, only her married name. Will any this be a problem? I don't see how this could be of an extreme issue though.

I posted this on the main forum as well, but I remembered you guys are much more knowledgeable and helpful! :)

I just so happened to review my Fiance petition this evening and I noticed that on my G-325A that I have messed up the section where it says mother and father's family name and first name. I mixed up and accidentally reversed the first and last names, only on my part (the petitioner). And I also included my mother's married name and not her maiden name.

Ultimately, will this be an issue? Will this consider me for an RFE? I sure hope not :/ Any comments/suggestions would be wonderful!

I don't think it will be that big of an issue. If they don't bother with an RFE for such a minor thing, then send a new corrected G-325A to the beneficiary to take to the K-1 interview. They can explain and ask that the corrected one be placed in their case file.

Ok, great. Thank you.

So you don't think an RFE will be processed for such a small parental information mistake? Nothing to be extremely worried about?

My opinion is that it is a minor issue. Somebody with eagle eyes may notice her name on your birth certificate does not match what you wrote on the form or it may just fly under the radar. Nothing you can do to fix it unless you get an RFE so wasted worry at this point.

Let it be a reminder to focus on the next time forms and then lay them aside to look over with fresh eyes before rushing off to send. Or find yourself a buddy to carefully proofread for you. Many people make mistakes. It's not the end of the world. Let it go.

Thanks, Nich! I didn't even send my birth certificate with my application (I'm not even sure if it had my parents name on it), I instead sent a copy of all pages of my passport.

Then they don't actually know your mom's name anyway. Her name could be Johnson Kay or Smith Susie. How would they know you got it wrong? I'm guessing it won't likely be an issue. Anything is fixable in this process so focus on that. Mom's name will not be a death sentence to your petition.

That's true. I think they would worry least about the parents. But for example I accidentally put:

Father Last name: First name:

Joe Johnson

Mother Last name (maiden): First name:

Kathy Johnson

Well any doofus at USCIS would probably figure out you reversed the names and move on. It is not their job to find a minor detail so they can fail you. If they are clearing your name on the FBI database and there are 3 with your exact name and one is a terrorist, then they have to figure out if you, the petitioner, is a terrorist and murdering pervert. So they compare birthdates, addresses, or parent names to see that you aren't the bad guy. Hopefully you do not share a name and birthdate with a bad guy so your parent names are irrelevant. Now drop this worry because I start to get annoyed when I answer, then have to reassure you, then you ask for a third reassurance. Not answering on this topic anymore. You are high maintenance. :P Edited by Nich-Nick

I hope so! Haha! High maintenance, you crack me up! I'm just a worrier, I suppose :)

Sometimes its good for you, but most times its bad.

Anyway, thanks for the input. I figured that they would only look into the parents if need be. And I don't have a too common name, so that's good!
