Middle name spelling discrepancy

So, great news... Today i received the official letter with my interview date for May 11th, in London, just six months after filing the original petition. So now i'm reading through all the info related to the interview, in particular form IV-019 which says it is my responsibility to document all discrepancies in my paperwork, such as my name. Now, my problem is that as a youngster i never used my middle name Elliot, and as a result never knew if it originally had two T's at the end, so when applying for my passport i put 2 T's (purely because i thought it was cooler) and it has never come up again, but now i have my birth certificate in front of me i see my folks only wanted 1 T, hence the discrepancy. On all my forms i've used the name as it appears in my passport, with 2 T's, as this is my major form of identification. So i'm wondering if anyone will even notice this? And also, how would i go about documenting this silly difference, officially, and before the interview, so as not to delay things.

If anyone has any experience with this or just any information or thoughts, please let me know.

thanks a lot everyone

It makes no difference. The visa will be issued in the name as printed in your international passport. Yes, we have lots of experience. Alla does translations of Russian and Ukrainian documents whch often have multiple spellings due to the transliteration of names from another alphabet (in case you wonde why "ghadafi's" name was spelled so many different ways) Our sons particularly ("Alla" is pretty hard to transliterate any other way) had multiple spellings, sometimes within the same document. Not to mention the multiple spellings she sees in many documents she translates, PLUS add in the different transliterations of the same name from Russian or Ukrainian (Svitlana or Svetlana, for example) It is enough to make your head spin.

Consulates always use the passport as the guide to name spellings. Alla's passport does not have a middle name, neither does her visa.

I think they are looking for big descrepancies. Like if your birth certificate says Paul McCartney, but at age 6 you were adopted and your new parents named you Ringo Starr, then you legally changed your name as an adult to Simon Cowell. They would need to see perhaps the adoption certificate showing the change from Paul to Ringo and a deed poll or legal name change from Ringo to Simon.

On another note: Have you called in to pay the visa fee yet? If you wait until after April 13,the price goes down $110.

It is actually $240 not $110. There is a reduction of $110 from previous fee of $350

Yes, that's what I meant. A savings of $110 when I said it goes down $110.

Should have said goes down BY $110??

I thought you could pay the fee at the embassy on the day before the actual interview began? Or is it essential to call up and pay in advance?

It's on this visa fees page http://london.usembassy.gov/immigrant-visas/iv_fees.html

K Visa Applicants
pay the fee to the Operator Assisted Information Service prior to attending the visa interview. Instructions concerning payment will be sent to you with the appointment letter.

Fee for K1 is currently $350 but a fee reduction was announced.
