Misspelled name on NOA1

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I got my NOA1 in the mail a few days ago and it had my fiance's name misspelled. I called USCIS and they said it would be corrected. I just got an e-mail saying that it now has been corrected, but that they are not sending a new notice as "it would serve no purpose to do so." Will this cause in problems if I have an NOA1 with a spelling error? I was going to send a copy to my fiance so he can bring it in when he comes to visit me in a few months, to prove that we filed for a K1 Visa.

NOA1 is not important. The important one is the NOA2 which a copy of it is included in the AOS package.

Almost the same as what Inky said ...

You will not need your Receipt Notice in the future. Presumably, your Approval Notice will have the fiance's name spelled correctly when you receive that.

I agree, you should send him a copy of NOA1 with the email from USCIS saying that they corrected the spelling and they would not send you a new one :)

Thank all of you for your suggestions :) I did forward him a copy of the e-mail, and he will bring it with him to the airport. The e-mail had his name right, so everything should be fine for my file.
