His middle name is different on his BC + Question about Letter of Intend

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So we got my fiance birth certificate. Which made him to remember that his mother changed his middle name...

We have no clue if she legally changed it or not...

No matter what his "last middle name" appears on his passport.

We have no legal document reguarding this change...

So my guess is we shouldn't send a copy of his BC but the full copy of his passport.

Correct?

I'm not sure how a middle name change really matters though...

Now I have a qestion about the letters of intend.

Should it be fully handwritten or just the signature?

Thank you

I can't say for certain for France but I guarantee if your SO was from an African country the name difference would NEVER fly! EVERYTHING has to match 100%

Pff...

The more I think about this problem the more I get confused...

My future husband's parents were chinese and born in China.

I'm really scared that if we just use the passport copy they'll make an RFE asking for the BC.

So we have two options, either we use the middle name that's stated on his BC but well any other documents will show his other middle name...

Or we use his other middle name wich is stated on his passport hoping they wont ask for RFE...

Of course, the best option would be to have a legal name change record...

We dont even know where to ask such a record...

It seems to be a court record though.

I guess the best to do is to use passport, hoping they wont ask for the BC, and during this time look for the name change record.

Anyone has some suggestions...?

Argl... I'm about to get hysterical.

I just checked his passport again, and actually it doesn't state any middle name at all...

Problem is most of his other documents such as taxes, salary bills... will show that other middle name.

Now I'm thinking about using the middle name that's stated on his BC and put the other middle name in the "Other names used" box on I-129 form...

I'm not sure what that box is for.

Help...

If his mother had his name changed, then she must have gone to some court somewhere, right? Shouldn't a clerk be able to tell you where you could get proof of the name change?

Also, I can't imagine that you'd get RFE'd for only providing a copy of every page of the passport as evidence of citizenship. The instructions tell you to send one or the other, and a full copy of the passport proves citizenship to USCIS pretty well -- it's what immigration officers actually look at when we cross the border, afterall.

Plenty of people use middle names that aren't officially their names. My father is one of them, he uses a confirmation name as his middle name. I would think that your fiance wouldn't be the first case of that that USCIS has ever seen.

That being said, you are required to give the full legal name of your fiance, so I would work on figuring out what that is.

Thank you very much. I didn't know that it was "common" to use a different middle name...

We'll use the middle name that is stated on his BC, which is also stated on his Social Security Card. And I listed the other middle name he is using in the "Other used names" box.

I felt more confident about which name to use when I found his SS card.

We printed the letter of intent and the signature was handwritten, We didn't get any notice that is was wrong, so it must be right ^^


Love is patient and kind;

it is not jealous or conceited or proud;

love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable;

love does not keep a record of wrongs;

love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth.

Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.

Love is eternal.
