My mum made a mistake on my age during her filing (US immigration and citizenship), instead of 1980, she wrote 1987. For this reason, she has not proceeded to file for me because we don't want to take any step that will affect her negatively. Can anything be done to correct the situation, if yes, how can you help?
First - is your mother a lawful permanent resident (has a green card) or a United States Citizen? Depending upon the answer to that question she can then apply for a new document on the basis that she needs to correct the error. She will have to pay the fee to have the new document generated unless she can establish that USCIS made the error in the birth year. Best of luck.
