No last name - can I split his first?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi - I've been following threads and looking for information about what to do with a fiance who has no surname (family name). I'm still not sure what I should do. My Fiance is from India and has only a given name, which has two parts. Usually on official forms he splits it into a given and surname - so say his given name is Jack Daniel with no surname, he uses given name: Jack and surname: Daniel.


Can we do this for this (I-129F) application? On his passport it has only given name: Jack Daniel and surname is blank. Reading through the forum, people suggest making the given name a surname and putting FNU or N/A or none for given name. My idea seems simpler, but since I haven't read of anyone doing this I'm worried it might raise problems.


Any help or advice is appreciated!

I would say that it needs to match his passport. If his passport says he has no surname then I would think every document he has or will ever have will have no surname...


I could be wrong as I have never come across with someone with no surname but obviously different cultures have different things.


If you can complete your profile so it says what country he is from someone from the admin may spot it and move the forum to his country of residence and someone there may have had the same thing.

You find it will probably help you a lot in getting your answer :)
