Typo after I-129F Approval

Hi, everyone Im new here and would like to ask for some guidance on my recent immigration problem. I would appreciate if anyone can help me or direct me in the right direction. 

 

This is my issue at the moment. My fiance visa petition got approved on Janurary 29, two days ago, and I went over some things with my fiance and I realized he gave me a different spelling to his name than the one that is on his passport. He is from Russia so in his Russian passport his name is translated with an “i” at the end, but when I made his petition I wrote his name with a “y” because he assured me that was correct, although I did write his name correctly as it is in his passport in russian alphabet, when I was asked to provide his full name in his native alphabet. 

 

I panicked and was furious he made this tiny but costly mistake and today I called USCIS costumer service and spoke to an officer and she told me it can be fixed and gave me a week till I get a response from them. So I asked for his name to be corrected just as it is in his Russian passport. I hope I was on time to fix the mistake before my case gets transferred to NVC office. 

 

My question is, does anyone know if my problem really has the chance to be resolved? I guess Im just asking for reassurance or some hope. 

 

Thanks

It is ok.

 

Yes they should be able to fix it and it not the NVC can and if not you can fix it at the time you enter the DS-160 and if not there is always the CO at the interview.    Sooner the better.

 

When my Wife did her DS-260 after getting the petition approved she got a new passport with her married name.   The CO fixed it at the interview and saved us the cost of getting a new green card and the delay associated with it.
