Changing name question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Olive's middle name is misspelled on her birth certificate which is the name she uses. On the BC it is Olib and she wants to change it to be Olive. At this point we both know she needs to wait until she get to the U.S. This is very upsetting to her because when we get married she wants it to be spelled correctly.

Can anyone tell me what the process would be to get the spelling corrected once she gets here. Also all the documentation we have done up to know has the name spelled as on BC with Olive listed in places where other names used is an option. So far no problem with this.

Thanks for your help guys....

Was just wondering...did they use both names on the application? In the I-129 I put down in the section of other names used the correct spelling which is what she is changing to.

it happen to me like this in 2004, my last name and first name is spelled incorrect,the time i found out my name is incorect when i apply for birth cert. from NSO. i fix it already before i got married.So my thoughts to you is fix this as soon as possibe,bcoz the processing on this will take some time. tell your wife to go to in the local civil registry where she was born, and talk to them and they will tell you how to correct it. when the local civil registry done with the documentation they will turnover your papers in NSO manila, after a week in NSO manila, the NSO manila will send confirmation letter included all forms you submitted in the local civil registry that your name is corrected and they will return to you all original paper you've submitted. then the local civil registry will contacted you that your papers is done.. i hope this will help.goodluck! :)

Her mom has done all the paperwork and from what I understand the correcton has been made and last week she went to the NSO in Manila....however what her mom had sent her was copies and she needed the originals which she now has. She is suppose to be going to Manila again today.

We started the I129 using her name the way it was spelled incorrectly on the BC but now she is ready to do her paperwork since we have are now at NVC or possibly on the way to Embassy in Manila.

We have put her name as Olive (which is correct) in the places where "other names used". Now she needs to start using Olive instead of Olib spelling on her paperwork she fills out.

We think we have this worked out OK she will take any and all papers she has with her showing the old spelling and the corrected spelling...however we are just praying that we won't get denied because the name is now spelled correctly and is showing two different spellings on the initial paperwork and the paperwork that will now be done.

This has been very important to her because when she starts her new life in the U.S. she wants her name to be correct and wants it spelled correctly on her marriage license when we get married.
