  • Missing Middle Name on Green Card

    This might be a simple question, but I haven't seen it answered anywhere else. I recently received my green card, but my middle name is missing. I think my attorney omitted it when the various documents were filed. I was wondering if there is any reason that would require me to have my middle name on the card (travel, etc.). All my other documents (birth certificate, foreign passport, US driver's license and Social Security card) show my full name, including my full middle name (not just the initial). I have traveled back to the 'old country' since getting the green card, and there were no problems, but I just want to be sure before I shell out the cash to have it changed. Thanks.

    Don't worry about it. Lots of people have their middle name missing from the card, or only a middle initial is there instead of a full middle name, and it doesn't cause problems with traveling or employment or anything else.
