Name change Documentation - Please help
I had changed my name while I was in India in 2013. This was before travelling to USA for the first time.

The only proof of name change I have is the State Gazette publication in India. My lawyer in the US asked if there is a Court order. As far as I know there is no court order required in India for change of name.

Has any one faced similar problem for name change? What is the documentation you had submitted?

I’m filling I-130 online for my parents.
In the section, other names used by beneficiary (if any), what should I put if parents never had other names? Should I leave it blank or put none?

Interview Experience for minor children?!

I am a permanent resident petitioning my minor daughter. She just turned 18 and she is in the United States legally.

Can you please share your INTERVIEW experience when it comes to minor children of permanent residents? Which questions are they going to ask, how stressful is it, etc? Our field office is in Idaho.

Would you mind sharing which documents you brought with you to the interview, whether you needed an interpreter, etc? My daughter's English is perfect, mine is so so when in these stressful situations.

Any help or guidance will be highly appreciated. Thank you for your help and support!

No Receipt yet
Hey guys. Hope you are all well. I’m looking for some advice /help. So I’m an Green card holder . My daughter is here for a couple years on F1 visa. File I130 for her a year ago through a lawyer, no approval yet (she is turning 21 in a couple weeks). Due to the F2A category being current, I then filed Adjustment of status NOT with a lawyer this time (too costly). I sent package to Chicago Lockbox. The issue is, I can see through my USPS tracking that they receive package since August 6, but I have not received a receipt notice, text or email and it’s now Aug 29. Is that normal? I paid via money order so I can’t tell if that was cashed. Any advice guys? I would really appreciate it.
