Hello everyone,

I'm about to get married with my boyfriend soon, he is an US citizen and I'm mexican living in Mexico.

Ok I have 2 girls, 12 yrs old and 3 yrs old, my 12 yrs old had my last name, I registered her as single mother, when we went to register my new baby, my boyfriend put his last name on his daughter and on my daughter birth certificade, not an adoption, he just told them to add his name as her father and they added his name.

So when we get married he will send an I-130 for me and another for my daughter, do any of you think it will be a problem if USCIS see her birth certificade with his last name? 

Thank you in advance

Yes because he is using a birth certificate with false information.


In your spousal visa case, you will have to tell when you and your husband met.  How is he going to explain having a daughter with you before he and you met?  


You need to get a corrected birth certificate. 


DO NOT continue to use a BC that has false information.  That is essentially lying and misrepresenting the truth.  The US Embassy/Consulate does not look kindly on immigration visa applications with legal documents containing false information, especially when the people supplying the documents know they contain false information.

Agreed: get the BC corrected. The Mexican official may not have been concerned about the names on it (or if local law permits this?), but the US government will care - immigration takes things like this very seriously.
