So I'm lovingly trying to help my SO fill out his G325A form and I ask him what his parents birthdays are...he tells me he doesn't know exactly. So being Me...and I guess you have to know me...I'm like "what do you mean you don't know?" And he tells me that essentially back then they didn't keep track (or keep track well I guess) He sends me a copy of their passports and lo and behold there is just the year they were born...no month no day. Just the year. What do I do???? Have any of you experienced something like this? His parents were born in the early 40's is this something that was done all over Morocco or just in the town where they were born? Ugh...I'm at a loss as to how to go about this one. :help: Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!

lol im sorry for laughing but u know

when we asked perviz his birth date he said well his family said he was born the year of the big flood when this or that happened so when they went to get his proof of birth for school they decided it must of been april the 10 of 1975 so thats the date shown on his birth certificate .......sadly in a lot of counties that is how the births are recorded

If you want to file now: My thoughts are put a line through the birth date section, and beside it write no date recorded on official records and include copies of their passports.

If you don't mind waiting: get the request from the judge with a birth date listed and update their passports.

I doubt this is the type of thing you would get an RFE for, but stranger things have happened. The most important thing is to not leave it blank and provide an explanation.

When we sent in the paper work for the K1 he didnt know his parents b-day and neither did they. This isnt uncommon for the ME. If they dont know - dont worry about it. Put down the year they were born - (they should know how old they are so minus that from 2008 = year born)

I dont know about in Morocco, but in Lebanon there is a family doc that has to be optained for the interview. On that doc it did have the birthdays of his mom & dad, but like i said when we first sent in the app we didnt know it. So dont worry you wont get an RFE for it.

Good Luck

I too find it mind boggling.....welcome to MENA

my husband and his immediate family not only DO NOT celebrate their birthdays but they dont even know EXACTLY when they were born.

photographs are at a bare minimum as well

I dont know what is up with that but it is sad someone doesnt even know their age or what day they were born

For my in-laws they only knew the year they were born. I made up dates for the K-1 and there was no problem. Later on they got new national IDs and their birthday was set to January 1. So I'd put down that for your future in-laws on the K-1.

My husband had the same situation. I think he had month for one parent and years for both. We just put what we knew. It's a common thing over there so the consulate is less surprised than you are by the situation. We didn't have a problem with uscis either. Good luck with your journey. If that is the oddest thing you run into along the way, then you will be just fine.

They knew my hubsters dad's birthday but nobody knows his mamas. When his parents got married, they gave his mother the same birthdate as her husband so they could have her on record. I thought that was INSANE!!

Thanks so much for the replies!!! I was planning on putting Jan 1 on both of them but I thought that would look suspicious. Thankfully he knows his birthday. Even though when we met he told me he was older than he was because he just counted the year...When I saw his passport I found out he was actually younger since he hadn't had his birthday yet. But if it hasn't been a problem for you guys then I feel a lot better. Did any of you who didn't have problems go through the VSC for your K1? If so...did they ask for more proof for the parents birthdays?
