Hello everyone;

Huge problem that may not be huge.  When we filled out the I-130 to petition for my wife’s mother, in the question that says if she has used any other names in the past or now, we answered with “n/a”.  Then as we were filling out the DS-260, the same question appeared.  Then it came to mind that she is known by many by a nickname other than her actual name (legal name).  Even her fb has that nickname and I feel terrible that we made that mistake of not saying that, but it just didn’t come to mind.  What will happen if we now on the DS-260 simple do the same as the I-130 and put “n/a” again to keep it consistent?  Or what is recommended instead?

A Nickname is different to another name she used legally .. eg last name before being married ..  of its not a name that has ever been used in legal ways.. eg bank account etc .. then it is unlikely to be an issue. I’m known by a couple of variations .. nicknames ..but all my legal documentation has my correct name. If this is her situation too , then no need to list the “nicknames”

Thank you very much.  It was unclear to me because it does say “nickname” and she is known by friends and family by the nickname.  We just for legal purposes didn’t choose to use it since ALL her legal documents have her actual name.  I hope there’s no problem with it at the interview.
