Language translation issue

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was looking at my divorce decree. It is in English. But I noticed that the country I am from, just like in English you use Mr. for salutation before the name, my divorce decree uses 'Shri' which is a hindi word meaning Mr. in english.

Basically, the name in the divorce decree is spelled out as Shri (First Name) (Last Name).

I was wondering if this could cause issues? Since the whole decree is in English except the fact that they have used a Hindi term for salutation instead of Mr. , I was wondering if they might end up thinking that it is not a salutation but a part of my name and give me an RFE instead?

Am I getting a little too paranoid? What is the recommended way forward?

Yes

What is the recommended way forward?

Relax and take deep breaths.
