Minor name difference in passport and birth certificate

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a 9 letter name (lets assume it is ABCDEFGHI) and no last name on my birth certificate (birth certificate only has Name field, no last name field)). In order to fill the last name field in my passport, i split my name into 4 letter first name and 5 letter last name. On my passport it shows as


First Name: ABCD

Last Name: EFGHI


When I filed i130/i485 I used that same idea as the passport, but my birth certificate still shows both the first name and last name with no space in between (ABCDEFGHI). The spelling is exactly the same, and the meaning of the name is also the same. It would be impossible at this stage to modify the birth certificate. Could this create problems with USCIS?. My graduate degree (from US), work permit (EAD), SSN card, and driver license all follow the passport 


First Name: ABCD

Last Name: EFGHI


Only the birth certificate shows
