You already applied? Or you are preparing to apply?

If you already applied and the documents do not match then you will probably get an RFE or be denied.

If you have not yet applied then you need to go to whatever official office for those documents and have them corrected before you apply.

Either way, they need to be corrected so that they match.

I was in a similar situation but it was with a spelling of my name... on my BC my name is spelled Melodie but on my SSC is is spelled Melody, so if you look at my passport it would have a different spelling than on all the tax information I submitted for the AOS... Now what you should of done was when fillin out the I-130 and it asked for all names used you should of listed all his names... I didnt think to list my other spelling of my name so I called the NVC and asked an Operator what to do... at their suggestion, I typed a letter stating why there was a difference in the spelling <I said my Momma was crazy and she thought that Melodie would jinx me into an untimely death, so she changed it to Melody on my SSC :D and then I attached a copy of my BC and SSC I sent this in when I sent in my I-864 AOS package...

IMO, I would do the same, just send in a letter with a copy of all the documents behind it <only send it in if you get an RFE or you have another package to send in like AOS or IV... I wouldnt send it in just to send it in>

like Mel said above, do NOT contact them yet. let them RFE you - it is possible they may let it go cuz in many countries (esp India), only the 1st names of the baby are listed in the BC. heck in a lot of cases, they dont even do that and just say either baby boy or baby girl. if you have his parents' names listed properly then you're ok. also, if you're worried, one of the forms of secondary birth evidence is a notarized affidavit from his mother saying that your husband is indeed her son and was born on xx date in xx hospital in xx town, xx city etc etc. another form of evidence is his school leaving certificate, widely used in many places as good evidence. the affidavit you should be easily able to get. so i wouldnt panic yet; chances are good that you're prob ok...i'm curious - are you still in the uscis stage (I-130), or NVC stage (post-uscis approval)? best of luck :thumbs:

First of all, Congratulations for your approval!

At NVC stage, fill the complete name, because this is the name printed on the Green Card.

Also, please fill your timeline in VJ.

Technically, that is NOT the other name (it is the same name, but not expanded fully). I suggest you may not have to put it under other names. Just fill the complete name in DS-230.

In my case, I filled middle initial in some forms and full middle name in others and had no issues.
