Birth certificate discrepancy

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

Looking for a bit of advice here. 

My fiance's first name is Maria, but abbreviated as Ma on all of her documents aside from her birth certificate where it is listed as Ma. with a period. Do you this this minor change would warrant an AKA on her Nbi clearance? Really want to avoid getting a 221g and delaying things further. 

Any insight is greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!

So her first name is shown as Maria on her birth certificate and passport along with Ma. (with a period) ?    

 

She will want to get her NBI with an AKA for other names used and list the other variation of her name.

No, sorry for not being more clear, her passport and other documents have her first name as Ma but on the birth cert they added the period after the a.  Just wondering if that is significant enough to warrant an AKA necessary. 

Thanks for your response

Oh ... I see, all documents have Ma .. but there is a period on the birth certificate.     I don't see that as being an issue at all.    I wouldn't do anything with that.

 

Has your fiancee used Maria on any official documents or is that just how she is called  by people?   If she has then that would need the AKA for the NBI ...  Otherwise you are all good in that area.

Thanks for the reassurance. She has never used another name on any official documents so I think we should be okay.

Really appreciate your site as well, so helpful to have all that information aggregated together in one place.

Thanks again!
