Ds-260 question about my spouse's mother date of birth

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Doesn't matter, does your spouse not know when their mother's birthday is?  ASK! 

 

The DS-260 is the visa application for the beneficiary.  Don't mess this up.

no you should fill it in correctly.  The beneficiary should put the day, month, and year their mother was born.

Definitely not and nowhere in this thread was that suggested to you. 

 

Ask your spouse when his/her mother was born. I know my mother's birthday. Even if they don't know, you need to ask your mother-in-law and find out somehow.

In a lot of countries, they don't have or keep record of specific dates of birth depending on how long ago it was and other factors I'm not sure of. My mother in law's national card only states her DOB as 1971 also. There's no month or day and she isn't sure of it herself. I work for a state govt agency and we get a lot of people coming from other countries who use 1/1/19** as their DOB because they have no other way to determine their actual birth date and it is accepted by the state.

Yes, but he didn't say he didn't know it. Just that it's not on her ID card. Big difference. If he didn't know it and she's now dead or she doesn't know it either, then that would be the way to go. But if he DOES know...

Well OP did state it's not listed on her birth certificate either. I would think that they asked her before getting access to her birth certificate. She may not know her actual birthday.

That's why I told the OP to ASK before just writing down any old number

I understand that. When I said SHE might not know her birthday, I was referring to the mother in law possibly not knowing her own actual birthday. Wouldn't OP's first thought be to ask the mother what her bday is before writing down any old number and before coming to Visa Journey? I could be wrong.
