Mother in law's name is different on Marriage certificate

Recommended Posts

So my mother in law has her maiden name and her name after marriage. 


By south Indian tradition ... we list our parent or husbands first name as our last name. So for example... Jaya John ... just means Jaya wife of John (there is no concept of family name here in this format). 


So the interesting thing is both my in laws fathers have the same name. 

So as an example my FIL is John Ravi

And my MIL's birth name is Jaya Ravi. 

Both of their fathers have the same first name = Ravi. 


My spouse's birth certificate and passport lists her Mother as Jaya Ravi. And I included this in DS 260 as well. This is her birth name. (From US perpective ... this could be confused to marriage name)


My MIL's name after marriage is Jaya John. And this name was listed on our marriage certificate. 


Our interview is in a couple of days ... how much of a problem can this create at the interview? 


In India,they offer a One and the Same form... to show both are the same person... would that be a good evidence?

Sounds like a non-issue.  Consular Officers see this all the time in Mumbai.

Thanks a ton!


My spouse's visa has been approved. It is a non-issue. And they didn't even check our wedding album and the actual interview lasted just 10 mins.
