Hello everyone!
We have almost everything ready to send the K1 visa papers, but there is one question I am not sure about. On the I-129F form, part 1, in the question of other names used. 
My fiancé has a Korean name which is his birth name and it is the one that appears on all legal documents: birth certificate, passport, credit cards, etc. However, when he moved to the US he started using Justin as it was easier to pronounce. 
This name does not appear on any legal document, but everyone knows him by that name. It appears in his emails, social networks and on his business cards. I just call him Justin, never by his original name.
Should we put Justin in the section of other names used, even though it does not appear in any legal document? 

 

Thank you very much!

Yes. From the I-129F instructions >>

 

Item Numbers 10.a - 10.c. Other Names Used. Provide any other names your beneficiary may have used including their aliases, maiden name, and nicknames.

Following the official instructions is always the best "opinion"....😃

You are welcome. Yeah, forget people's opinions. Most important is to follow all the instructions for forms, and any instructions you receive from USCIS or the consulate abroad when applying for the visa. Good luck!
