nameless birth certificate

Dears,

 

We have a weird situation. We have sent our I-129f and now when I check the embassy requirement (More likely I will go to Naples as currently I reside in Malta) they need petitioner original birth certificate during interview..

 

And here is a tricky part. My fiance birth certificate has no... name. No one gave him a name when he was born (it was given after, and not officially registered) and apparently it was never an issue in U.S.. he got passport/driving licence etc with no problem...

 

I am a bit lost in this situation as i really do not know what to do.. Should we call to USCIS , Embassy?  And see if they can provide some information for this type of situations.

They don't need the actual original birth certificate from when he was born but a certified birth certificate.  So as long as he has that then he is fine.

If he got a passport and a DL, at some point either a name got put on his birth certificate or someone signed an affidavit or some other paperwork happened to prove he is who he is.  Maybe his parents did some paperwork when he was a child which he isn't aware of, but he needs to follow the paper trail and find out how he got a passport with a nameless birth certificate.  Sometimes the passport office accepts alternate evidence but I'm sure they required something showing his name.  If he hasn't already, file for a certified copy of his birth certificate from the state registrar to see exactly what's on it.

 

Find out exactly what happened and get the paperwork to prove it.  He can also file for a legal name change to add a name to his birth certificate, I believe.  Did he not submit his birth certificate with the original I-129F filing?

 

Also maybe talk to others from your embassy who have been through the process to see if the embassy actually requires the petitioner's birth certificate.  Sometimes evidence lists are outdated or they simply don't ask for everything on the list when you actually go in for the interview.

Thank you for your response!

 

Yes, now we try to understand what he used in order to get a passport. Certified passport copy unfortunately is no good as it also has no name (( I hope that we will figure out what documents we need to provide for proving that it is his bc. 

 

In petition he sent his passport copy. Because there they give a choice. Which they do not do in embassy ;( And yes , I talked to someone who had an interview this December and both BC were requested.

 

Btw* I like you timeline as it really feels this way.
