Hi,

I the petitioner filing i-130 for my spouse who is living overseas. The problem is that my spouse doesn't have a surname/familyname but she has first and middle name. So in her passport "given name" includes first and middle name and "surname/familyname" is left empty.

Form I-130 asks for spouse family name, first and middle so im not sure what to do. I was thinking of putting her middle name in "family name" box and her first name in "first name" box, leaving the middle name empty. I'm really confused, please advice what to do

thanks

Yep, do that its her name legally

try to mess with and it becomes

complicated.

Thanks... Let's say her given name is "Mary Jane" and no familyname/surname/lastname. So in i-130 ill put "Mary" as First and "Jane" as Family name. I think it should be ok. I dont want to leave the Family name empty since its required and very common in the usa

Hi Addiboy. we are now preparing our stuff as well for CR1 visa. Im not sure if it will help but I have somehow incomplete name too. I have family name but no middle name.

Since I am already married, Im using now my husbands family name as family name and my maiden name as my middle name.

I am from Philippines and in Philippines, middle name for women means our mothers maiden name(single) or our Maiden name (married)

The form also asks you to list all children. If your spouse has no children would you just enter some other inaccurate information there?

Interpret the questions literally and answer accurately. I recommend entering ---- in the family name field if there is no family name, just as I would do for all Chinese people, who NEVER have a middle name.

"None" is actually a name in more than one language. It's pronounced Non Ay. Never enter NONE in a name field unless the person being asked about does not exist, such as "former spouse". Then just enter NONE once and leave the rest of the information about former spouse blank.
