  • Different Name in Facebook

    Hi there folks. This forum has been very helpful to me as we go on to gathering evidence before concurrently filing my I-130 and I-485. We are almost done but I just wondered if I will have to put the name I used in facebook on the immigration forms which asks for other names used. Because my full name is too long i shortened my first and last name in facebook. I tried to changed it but i just modified last month and Facebook wont let me change it, should be in 60 days after, they have a feature that let's you change it with id but problem is since i am out of visa i cant renew any of my id cards.

    Pretty sure they're talking about any other names you've gone by legally. But that's really something you would need to contact USCIS about.
    This is strictly an opinion and should not be misconstrued as legal advice. The use of this information is strictly at your own risk.

      It is reasonable to assume they are asking in case where you changed your name, or something like that. For example, if you were issued a driver license with you name misspelled, then you had it corrected. There are lots of legit reasons for a name change, and they only want to know so they can match up the records.

      My friend is Armenian. His name was "Karen" (pronounced Car-En, not Care-Ren). He had his name changed to "Gary" because in the USA, "Karen" is not a man's name.

      Your online screen name is just a nickname. It means nothing.

        Facebook name is not 'Other Names Used'.

              They said the same thing to my friend. A week later his wife received her visa.

              There could be almost any reason. For all you know they are just backlogged by all the interviews and did not have time to do a final review of their notes. If that is the case, they likely told everyone who interviewed that day, the same thing.
