View Full Version : Long name on I-130

I need your help please.....

I am in the process of applying for GC for my parents.

I would like to type all the information in the pdf and rather not hand write it


1) The names are too long and wont actually fit in the form. It shows up as "+" in the name box. Any suggestions ? Can i handwrite just the name in the form ?

2) My dad's family (Surname) in the passport/visa is shown as "XYZ". Does it have to be the last name in the form I-130, I-485 etc ? or Can I change that ? I dont think they care if I switch the names (last name and middle names) around but wanted your opinion.

3) Does my middle name/last name have to match my dad's ?

Thanks a lot.

1. Yes.
2. Write exactly as per passport
Given Names = First Name
Sur Names = Last Name.
3. No.
