I-129f Patronymic name on application

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is it necessary to include patronymic names on the I-129f? Should it match the domestic or international passport name? Or is it fine to omit the patronymic names? 

 

If they need to be included, should they be in the line for Given name?

 

Help pleaaaaaaaase

You can skip it if you don’t have it in your international passport. The Domestic passport doesn’t matter to USCIS. It is the international one that you will use when crossing the border and the name on your visa should match the name in the passport. You can specify your patronymic in the line that says “other names used”. But the first line should have the name that international passport has.

We put my fiance's patronymic name in the middle name blank. It has it on his international passport. When you get a passport they might have you include it too so I would put it in the middle name blank just in case

I put Anastasia's patronymic as her middle name on the I-129F, then we didn't use it on our marriage license or AOS application. Which caused a little bit of trouble with the SSA when her old social security card (in her maiden name) didn't quite match the name on her green card and we wanted to update that (and we needed to do that to get a learner's permit). But we were able talk their way through it.

 

Anyway, you'll probably run into some issues regardless of what you do; American government officials don't get patronymics.

I didn’t run into any problem not using patronymics. There are three immigrants from  my family,  three separate petitions were filed and neither of them had patronymic specified. 
 

i suspect since you were not consistent throughout all the documents, thats what caused confusion.

I guess it wasn't strictly patronymic related, but there have also been things like when we were applying for our marriage license the clerk not understanding why my wife's father's last name was [something]ov and her last name was [something]ova and thinking that was a typo ...

DO NOT put the Patronymic name in the "Given names" section, this happened to my husband. It ended up being included as part of his "First Name" and we had to submit an I-90 to get the GC corrected.
