Affidavit of Bonafide Marriage typo!

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Very fast question!

I made a typo while creating an affidavit of bonafide marriage in the part where I list my name and my wife the beneficiary. It is basically in the middle name instead of Xandrovna, I typed xandrova, (it was notarized liked this with the error)

I could do it again but my father who is the person doing it cannot do it for about a week because he has no time to go to notary. is it worth delaying a week the sending of my package and fixing that or should I leave it and just let it be.

Maybe I can write something in the document stating the error?

I am also sending photos, receipts of stuff we did together in trips, tickets, skype and facebook logs and a letter showing I have a debit card for her bank account.

So what to do?

Always double check your documents and forms. Not only do you get delayed by RFEs and Checklists, but the time it takes for them to review the new items you send could be used to approve more applications. Save yourself and others valuable time!

Current Status: NVC:
-Assigned and Received NVC Case Number, IIN, and BIN April 18, 2014. (100% sure case # was assigned today because I called twice and it wasn't assigned in the morning when they opened but in the afternoon it was)
*Could not provide email then as case was still being updated in their system
-On April 21, 2014 I was able to provide my email and beneficiary's.

Affidavits are low on the evidence scale. I wouldn't worry about it. The notarization doesn't mean the content is correct, just that they verified your identity as to who signed it. Don't worry about it.

Think in terms of quality, not quantity. Select a number of logs over the course of your relationship that you feel make the most compelling case. However many pages that turns out to be is however many pages that turns out to be.
