Different last/anme and father's name on birth certificate and school trenscripts

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Current status : Our I-130 has been approved (NOA 2) and we are in the process of completing DS -230 and waiting to hear from the NVC..

My wife (the benficiary of a CR 1) lives in India. I (the husband, petioner) am the USC.

Here is the issue. My wife's foster father (not a legal adoption with no records)was responsible for her schooling. My wife was enrolled in school with his last name and his (verbally adopted father's ) name appears as gardian/father's name on all of my wife's school transcripts (mark-sheets). My wife's biological father's name appears on her birth certificate and on everything else (PAN card, drivers license, ration card, voter ID) including our marriage certificate. She has explained the mismatch a with an affidavit and with a legal document called a gazette stating that she is keeping her birth last name with the name of her biological father. We had submitted all that with I-130 and I -130 is approved.

Now she is having a hard time obtaining an Indian passport and we are working on it. How does this affect the rest of the visa process? Suggestions related to both passport and visa will be appreciated.

Can you try to find an agent who can help you with this doc work, and can help you to obtain the passport? If you know someone who is eligible to sign Annexure F, then things can be easier ( I guess ).

You must have to provide your wife's passport copy to submit DS-230. Without that, your visa process will be pending, and you wont get your interview date until you are done with NVC stage.

Yes, In IR-1/CR-1 case NVC needs photocopy of your wife's valid Indian Passport in IV package along with DS-230 in it. Until this package is reviewed and accepted in its entirety, your case will not be completed and cannot be forwarded to foreign embassy for an interview.
