The first question is if it appears on your birth certificate.  If not, no need to include it.  It’s not part of your legal name.

 

If it is, it may still not be considered part of your legal name as it’s neither part of the family name or the first or middle name, although it could be your first name followed by a comma if it’s on your birth certificate that way.  Though they normally search databases including the first and last name with a birthdate and Social Security number, so I think leaving it off is fine for clarity.

what if it is on the birth cert but still not 100% sure where to put it?  I was thinking it would go after the Last name so in this instance Doe Jr for Last name (Family Name), that correct or no?

The family name doesn’t include Jr or all siblings would have it, it’s a designation for the individual, so more appropriate to go with the first name.  Doe/Jane,Jr/Middle.

I'm doing further research on this and I seem to be getting all sorts of different answers, a lot of places say use it after the last name, and then also have seen use it as you stated after the first separated by a comma, and some say do how you want.

 

What is the absolute correct way :(

 

btw this is for filling out I-864 for a joint sponsor.

I would leave it off as it doesn’t ask for a suffix as some forms do.  But, strictly speaking, it’s a given name, not a family name so I can only see it going in that box.

yeah true.

 

If anyone else who has had to fill in this form with a suffix or USCIS forms in general with a suffix and had success, would love to know the way you did it, would be amazing help, this is for an I0864 for a joint sponsor to sending in form for an RFE so want to make sure am doing it 100% correct.

There's no box that is saying title, just Family name (Last Name), Given Name (First Name), Middle Name

 

Still not sure where to put it

Then leave it off, just place what is asked for... e.g John, Jane, Doe...

Just making sure, surname in this regard would be Family Name (Last Name)"?

 

So in the box where it says Family Name(Last Name) - put Doe Jr?  

 

Would it just be like that Doe Jr, or something like Doe - JR, or Doe,Jr?

Hope this helps!

Since, you say this in regards to a co-sponsor, how is their name printed on their tax return or tax transcript?
