  1. Write to the USCIS. Please see

    Mr. Shusterman is a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) with over 35 years of immigration experience. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.


  2. Send a letter to USCIS asking them to amend the incorrect part. Look for the I-130 receipt and send it to the USCIS address on there.
