Greetings VJ community!

I hope everyone is doing well!

So got to Vietnam yesterday to support my fiancee for her interview on 7/14.

I was reviewing the appointment letter and noticed that the US consulate swapped my fiancee's first name with her middle.

I reviewed the forms that were sent in such as the I-129f, g325, DS 230, DS2001 and the name on form looks as it should.

I reviewed the 1st and 2nd NOA and the case number letter from the NVC and the name looks as it should on all three forms as well.

I'm going to the consulate tomorrow and inquire about this as I think it's a problem.

I'm scratching my head because if the name is correct on all forms and letters from Gov why would the letter be different?

Has this happen to anyone before? Did you get it fixed?

Any information would be appreciated!

No worry..it's just normal especially if there are 2 middle names.

The appointment letter for both of our interviews has different name set up each time. It was all alright at the end..

When we filed I used one of those attorney services and the rocket scientist left the G of of my wife's second name (huong). I didn't think much of it, just that it was an abbreviation.

All subsequent paperwork filled out after the K1 application was approved included the g in her name- including the application for the interview at HCMC.

At the end of the interview my wife was handed a blue slip with no explanation and we were shocked and enraged. The next day I found out that the reason was that her application had to be sent back to the U.S to go back through FBI checks seeing how the FBI checks had been done against the wrong name. Cost us an extra month of waiting for no other reason than laziness.

Thanks to all that posted!

I really appreciate it!

So I went to the information window with my fiancee and explained that the appointment letter had the name out of sequence (first name was swapped for middle).

The lady was very nice and she gave us a form so we can fill out but needed a copy of my fiancee's birth certificate. We went back to room and got copy and submitted form.

The lady mentioned that she'll make changes and to stop by on Wednesday to get updated appointment letter. She said not to worry!

Apparently this kind of thing happens often.

Wish us good luck on Thursday.

good luck!!

To quotes a movie, “So how does it happen, great love? Nobody knows... but what I can tell you is that it happens in the blink of an eye. One Moment you're enjoying your life, and the next you're wondering how you ever lived without them.” I felt I found something with Kieu that is rare in life... true love.
