Mother name misspelled by 1 letter. What will happen?

I wouldn't worry about it. My fiance put her mother's DOB in the wrong format as well. It's possible they will send an RFE to have you correct the issue & resend the form. More likely, they won't mention it. What I've read is to just tell them about the mistake at the interview and ask them to let you correct the form there. The alternative is to contact the service center and let them know beforehand, and see if they want you to send the updated for sooner.

I have made the same error and misspelled my mother in law's name on my wife's G-325A. I realized this after my case was approved by USCIS. When I tried to correct it at NVC, they said to correct it on Visa application and have proof at the interview. But if your case it still with USCIS, try to correct it by submit request to correct information on form. Correcting at USCIS is the best route to go, in my opinion. Good luck?
