What does it mean when a paper is attached but with someone else name on it ?

El Paso, TX |

There was mail sent to me and it says "In the matter of Maria Josefina but I don't know anyone by that name.

These were immigration papers but the paper was stapled to the back of it.

  1. It means someone made a mistake apparently. You need not do anything but it would help someone if you notified whoever you can find on that document by phone.

  2. I'd think there was some form of clerical error or mistake.

    No attorney-client relationship is created by responding to any question on Avvo. Further, nothing contained in any response may be relied upon as legal advice.

  3. As all of the other commenters have stated, this correspondence seems to have been sent in error.
