Paternal name on green card russia

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

 

Im totally lost with names, I have SSN, Drivers licence, marriage certificate with just my name and surname, but officer in USCIS put my fathers/paternal name on my GC as my middle name, I will file to remove conditions from GC soon and I am lost how to fill my name, because paternal is not actually middle name.

 

 I will repeat in russian:

На всякий случай напишу на русском еще, мне при получении гринки офицер вкорячил отчество как мидл нэйм, хотя я его нигде не заявляла, он своей рукой вписал его в документы, со словами ничего не знаю, ну будешь с мужским именем. Скоро подавать на новую гринку и я не знаю, что писать в графе мид нейм, тк отчество это все таки имя моего папы, а не мое. кто сталкивался?

 

Спасибо

 

Thank you !

How did you fill out the I485?  In my wife's case she chose to adopt her patronymic name as a middle name, but I understand that many do not prefer to do that.  Regardless, I would stay consistent with the I485 submission.

 

Good Luck!

That's very weird! I don't have it as middle name anywhere besides my Russian passport and DL. I would remove "otchestvo" from your new application. Probably just leave this lane blank.

You can use it as "middle name" if you want. Yes, it's not technically a "middle name" but middle names in the US are basically anything you want them to be as long as they are on your birth certificate. Since your patronymic name is on your birth certificate, you can go ahead and use it as a "middle name" if you want....you can also choose to have no middle name. There is no hard and fast rule about this.

 

My husband likes his patronymic name so he uses it as a middle name here. No issues, no problems...there are also others who just leave their middle names blank and are just "Ivan (No Middle Name) Ivanov" on their GC and other important docs.

 

To sum up: use it if you want. You are free to use it as your middle name or just have no middle name. It's your choice as far as USCIS is concerned.

I believe just don't put it if you don't want to have it. If the IO insists, keep it on permanent GC, and then you have an option to remove it when getting US passport.
