DS-260. No birth father on birth certificate

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Country: Vietnam

On DS-260, page titled "parents", there is a question about the applicant's father.


The father is not listed on the birth certificate. The option for omitting the question is to put "Don't know", but that seems incorrect because we do know information, but he is not an official father.


For the i-130a, we put "N/A" and then noted the father's name in the "additional information" section and commented that the beneficiary has no father designated on her birth certificate. 


What do you suggest that we do on the DS-260.?


(Applicant is my wife and a vietnamese national.)

Put the father's information on the DS-260.  Putting "Don't know" would not be accurate in your wife's case.  You don't want to be caught in a lie on any immigration document.


It's fine if the DS-260 doesn't match the blank entry in the birth certificate.  If your wife will be interviewing in Vietnam, consul officers there would know what it means when there is no father listed in the BC.  I doubt it would be considered a big deal.
