I am the petitioner on the K1 Visa I am getting ready to apply for. I use my nickname for almost everything. It's on my Social Security Card, my tax forms, my bank account. My legal name appears on my birth certificate, passport, marriage certificates and divorce decrees. My question is about the petitioner's name section where it says "Provide all other names you have ever used, including aliases,maiden name, and nicknames. If you need extra space to complete this section, use the space provided in Part 8." I have put my nickname in this section, and wondered if I need some documentation to explain it. As it's just a nickname, there is none. I wondered if obtaining an affidavit of same person would be a good idea?
JackleDos posted a topic in K-1 Fiance(e) Visa Case Filing and Progress ReportsHello Forums! First off, let me say.. Big thank you to all of you, I've been trudging through the process of filing my I-129F and building the subsequent packet, and I've been using the website a /lot/ for questions and suggestions. It's made this daunting task seem more manageable and put me way ahead of schedule to get this sucker finished. (I'm nearly there! ) Now, for my question. I didn't occur to me when I was filling out my beneficiary's information that while her name is Kateryna, she always goes by Kate. Not an issue, as 95% of the supporting documentation has her full name on it. Like Airline tickets, Itinerary, Legal documents, etc. However, when I was attaching some AirBnB receipts that I was using as evidence for the 'circumstances of your in-person meeting' portion, I realized that a few of them have my first and last name and her first and last name, albeit listed as Kate - Not Kateryna. Is this going to be an issue? The receipt still corroborates with the rest of my documentation: dates, locations, etc. I just don't want to get ding'd on it and get an RFE because I didn't list Kate under 'Other Names Used.' What bothers me even more is in the I-129F instructions, it states that - "If either you or your beneficiary use a name other than the one shown on evidence submitted in support of your petition, you must submit copies of the legal documents (such as a marriage certificate, adoption decree, or court order) reflecting the legal name change." I don't, nor would I ever, have legal documents as to why her name is Kate. So in short, will they be humans and realize that clearly Kate is short for Katernya and accept it? Will they ignore it altogether, and just look at the other evidence on the receipts which still supports my claims? Or are they going to go crazy like the border patrol agents do, when it was late and you typo'd your name on a plane ticket and it no longer matches your passport, and subsequently disappear into the windowless van for a series of polite questioning? Thanks in advance, Kevin
I am a US citizen. I was born in Colombia, but I was adopted when I was a few weeks old. Upon my birth I was given a Colombian name but the name was changed when I was brought to the US. I am now filling out form i-129 and I am wondering if I need to list the Colombian name that was used for the first few weeks of my life. I know my situation may be very unique but I am wondering if anyone has any idea about what I should do. Thanks
