I-129F status updated name change

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently got an updated status notice, and it says "On October 19, 2018, we updated your name for your Form I129F, PETITION FOR ALIEN FIANCÉ(E),"
For the sake of keeping my last name anonymous, let's say
I was born with the last name Smith
I legally changed it to Johnson.
I filed the entire form under the name Johnson, sent a copy of my legal name change by court document with seal, sent a photocopy of every page of my new passport with Johnson.  I also scanned a copy of my birth certificate saying Smith, for the purpose of showing that the name change document was correct that it went from Smith to Johnson.  Does this new status change mean they've just changed everything in my application to Smith?  I listed Smith as an alternative name I have gone by in the past, but in no case is the current, true, legal name.  I am very confused. Has anyone else gotten this notice and knows what it means?  I can't find a way to contact them to see what name they updated my case to.
