K1 filing I485. Parent's name/DOB Discrepancy

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Im a K1 filing my I485. I have a problem with my mother's identification that I just found so I'm having a hard time figuring out how to input her info into the I485 as my parent. I filled out the I129F with the identifying info I knew for her not really based on any kind of documentation so now that I have found her registration of birth I am kind of at a loss as to what to do. 


1. Her birthday is sometimes stated as Oct 23rd while other times Oct 28th on her id's. Her registration of birth states Oct 28th. She did not have a birth certificate but she always stated her DOB was incorrectly filed so I assumed it was corrected along the way to be the real date of Oct 23rd. Some IDs still state her DOB as Oct 28th. When she passed away I recorded it as Oct 23rd though. Which date should I use or does it really matter?


2. Her name was misspelled on her registration of birth by one letter "Gladis". Again that misspelling continues on some pieces of ID but not on others. I input what she always used when it came time to register her death certificate "Gladys" on the I129F. So there is a discrepancy between her registration of birth "Gladis", her death certificate "Gladys" and what I put on my original I129F "Gladys". My birth certificate states the corrected name "Gladys" but it also just states her maiden name even though she was married when I was born. What should I use as her birth name and and as her legal name on the I485? Is it a big deal that I am changing the info now after what I submitted on my I129F?


3. She has no middle name at all on any of her ID"s but I always knew her middle name was "Agnes" (which she hated) so when it came time to register her death I thought I was doing the right thing by inputting "Agnes" as her middle name not knowing that it wasnt on any of her ID's. Should I use it in her legal name as that is what is on her death certificate? Or do I need to go by what is on her registration of birth?


4. Her place of birth is listed as a block and parcel number only (no town, no city). I have input her city of birth as "Unknown (and then the Province of birth in brackets)". Is that acceptable?

 

Basically, should I use all of the info that is listed on her registration of birth for her birth name and birthdate (Gladis and Oct 28th) even though it is incorrect and is not what I input on the original I129F? And then use all of the information how it is displayed on her death certificate for her legal name?
EVEN THOUGH THEY DONT MATCH? 


What does USCIS use the info for anyways? Are they going to investigate my parents to confirm all of the info is correct? I am at a loss as how to know which is the legally correct info or where to even confirm anything at this stage of the game...HELP!

ORRRRR am I just overthinking?

I input her info as Gladys Agnes (married last name) and Oct 23rd on the 129F. It did not ask for her city of birth on the I129F, only the country.

Some IDs still state her DOB as Oct 28th. When she passed away I recorded it as Oct 23rd though. Which date should I use or does it really matter?  If you had to produce a document that confirmed her birthdate which would you use? Then that's the one I would use. Or, use what you have used in the past (see #2)


2. Her name was misspelled on her registration of birth by one letter "Gladis". Again that misspelling continues on some pieces of ID but not on others. I input what she always used when it came time to register her death certificate "Gladys" on the I129F.

What should I use as her birth name and and as her legal name on the I485? Is it a big deal that I am changing the info now after what I submitted on my I129F? It's best to use what you have used in the past like for the I-129f. This way all the documents tie back to themselves with the same date. Since she is passed away, I don't think it's really going to matter.


3. She has no middle name at all on any of her ID"s but I always knew her middle name was "Agnes" (which she hated) so when it came time to register her death I thought I was doing the right thing by inputting "Agnes" as her middle name not knowing that it wasnt on any of her ID's. Should I use it in her legal name as that is what is on her death certificate? Or do I need to go by what is on her registration of birth? BC trumps everything else so that is what you should use.


4. Her place of birth is listed as a block and parcel number only (no town, no city). I have input her city of birth as "Unknown (and then the Province of birth in brackets)". Is that acceptable? I would use both the block and parcel and the city. If it doesn't fit use the city.

 

Basically, should I use all of the info that is listed on her registration of birth for her birth name and birthdate (Gladis and Oct 28th) even though it is incorrect and is not what I input on the original I129F?

EVEN THOUGH THEY DONT MATCH? Oy Vey. I'm getting a headache. :D

I input her info as Gladys Agnes (married last name) and Oct 23rd on the 129F. It did not ask for her city of birth on the I129F, only the country. This is the information that summarizes everything that I said. So let's go with that. You can always explain to whom ever ask. Don't volunteer anything during an interview but if asked then tell the truth. But if you let sleeping dogs lie then I don't think it will matter.

Thank you for your help but I'm going to walk away from the situation. 

Each piece of my mother's ID has one error or another. If it has her middle name on it, her first name is spelled wrong. If it has her first name spelled right it has the birthdate wrong and/ or no middle name listed. I dont have a BC for her at all and the next thing closest to it is completely wrong (registration of birth states "Gladis" with no middle name and Oct 28th, which is wrong). And it only states letters and numbers for her place of birth, no city at all. So it's useless. 

I'm just going to go with what I know and use the information she told me verbally. I'm sure that's what others have had to do when they don't have documents for their parents.

If they ask I will say I used the info I knew in replacement for evidence as the evidence i had was wrong and she told me that those documents were wrong.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVICE THOUGH! I really, truly appreciate it!!!!!!😁😁😁😁
