I-130 spelling error in foreign document

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, My wife's prior divorce decree is in Hindi that I am getting translated by a translation service. It has the incorrect spelling for the last name of my stepchild in one place ,  translates to 1 vowel being different, I instead of A - everywhere else the last name of my wife, her ex husband and their child is spelled correctly in the document (in addition my step child's birth certificate has the correct spelling as well). My question is:


- should I ask the translator to use the correct spelling when translating to English 

- translate it as is - is there a likelihood of RFE for something like this as it has to be obvious that this is a spelling error in the original doc,


its really hard to get the original document changed and could take months, hence I was asking..
