Stressed -- Mistake on Approved I-129F Petition

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Now that my fiance and I have our NOA2, we've been working our way through the paperwork included in P3. And now that he has his birth certificate, he realized we made a few mistakes in filling in his information on the I-129F and the G-325A.

The mistakes:

- We wrote down Town A for his birthplace, when his birth certificate actually says City B (a city a few miles away from Town A where the hospital is).

- He promised me that he has never used his middle names for anything, and they aren't on anything important. So when we filled out the G-325A and the I-129F, we only included his first and last name. (This matches his driver's license, passport, etc). Surprise, his birth certificate does include his middle names. :bonk:

Taken alone, neither of these would worry me. But with both of them together... Ugh. Needless to say, it is stressing us out.

Our new plan is to

1) make the corrections in all of the forms we include in Packet 3 -- use the correct birthplace on his birth certificate (City B) and to include his full name, complete with middle names, where it asks for "Other Names You Have Used."

2) We will also write up a little letter explaining the two changes we have made and include it when we respond to Packet 3.

3) If it is possible, after securing an interview date we will try and contact the embassy to make sure they've received the letter and that we don't need to do anything else or include any other information.

4) And finally, mention it at the interview, to make sure they've made the changes in their system.

How screwed are we? Is there anything else we should do? I'm assuming that we *should* bring both of these mistakes to their attention. Any words of reassurance?

(And yes, I'm fully aware that we should have double checked this when we filled out the I-129F. I'm trying not to be too hard on either of us given all the other stress we're feeling from being separated for going on 8 months now, but it's hard...)

i think you could just mention this up in his interview ONLY if they question you guys.

my husband birth certificate his middle name spelled wrong. but the immigration didn't bother to ask. plus when they send out our NOA1 his country birth place was UNKNOWN :bonk: but we never had no problem.

anyways if you still have doubt you could write a letter to NVC to make changes.but keep in mine..your case will probably won't last more than 1month to NVC. so by the time you send the changes..they might have send it to the embassy to have your fiance interview.


The longer it takes to happen the more you'll appreciate it when it does!

quick question, and its the only one i can see posing an issue: what names were on the police search from cpic database? That is the only place i can see issues myself. edit nevermind lol just realized you have yet to do that. I think you should make sure he does the search using all 3 names. otherwise it might look like it was omitted on purpose.
