Spelling mistake on receipt

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When we received the receipts for our I485, I130 and I131 there was a spelling mistake in my husband's (USC) name on the I130 receipt only. He called and explained the error - and was told it would take 30 days for them to change the information (it's really difficult changing an O to a D!!). This was 3 months ago, and it suddenly occurred to me that we didn't get a new receipt for the I130. I'm not sure if we are supposed to - thought I would post on VJ to see if anyone could answer this question, before I spend 40 minutes trying to get someone on the phone. Thanks for your help.

If i recall correctly they misspelled my (the beneficiary) name on the first NOA for the I-129F.. we didn't actually do anything and by the time we got the approval notice, the error had been corrected.. I doubt you have to worry about it in this instance either...
