Hi I'm a silent viewer for this forum. Recently my friend received a RFE regarding First name. His priority date is not current. Here are the details. All the documents including passport, educational doc, marriage certificate, every doc in India says FirstNameXXXX MiddlenameYYYYY. For instance you know India, it is not that uncommon to call Venkata Sai (for e.g). You go by Sai which is common to be called. So when he first arrived he wrote Sai as FirstName (for e.g). After that he don't have any issues, applied SSN with Sai as First Name, Venkata as middle name. also had Drivers license, bank account, credit card etc as Sai as First Name, Venkata as middle name. His AP, EAD every thing is so consistent with Sai V. LastName. In fact his 140 also approved as Sai V. LastName. But now He received RFE saying when did he changed the name legally?. If so please send appropriate doc to prove your name change. But he never changed his name. Every doc in US says as Sai V. LastName. Even though passport, edu. doc, marriage certificate etc reads as Venkata Sai. LastName. Attorney told affidavit from parent’s stating both names belong to same with notarized should be able to do it. My question is did anybody faced similar situation? Can somebody point me to the similar kind of RFE/help regarding this issue? His LastName is fine. Just FirstName, Middile name got swapped. But his intention is to be consistent with commonly called name in India. So he stick to that name and did not change any name legally.
