RFE for i765: Sworn Affidavit indicating Full Legal Name

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is the RFE word for word.

"Service records and information provided on your i765 application conflict regarding your full legal name. Please submit a sworn affidavit indicating your full legal name. Please include a list of all aliases. Please include your maiden name. Please include your married name(s). For all names provided, please list them in the following format: LAST, First, Middle. If the name provided on your form i765 is a married name, please include a copy of your marriage certificate and a complete English translation if the document was not originally issued in English."

I found a simple name affidavit online by doing a google search but I'm not sure what they need exactly.. so I created my own affidavit that I hope to get notarized tomorrow.

Interesting. I have seen a few of these RFEs about the legal name as of late. Maybe it would be best for people to also include a copy of their marriage certificate with the I-765 as well as the I-485, since they are processed separately.

Your affidavit looks good.

Did you list a name that is different than simply taking your spouse's last name in place of your own?

Do you mean on the i765 application?

I did not. I think I put my maiden name as First Last though.. so that may have been the issue. And i didn't include my marriage license >.>

That should be included in the instructions I think.

Yes, on the I-765. Should have had the same name listed as you put on your I-485. The marriage certificate is not required for the I-765, but i have seen other RFEs like yours asking for them to provide a statement listing their full legal name.
