i applied for an immigrant visa some time ago but did not insert my former names.
i am now a permanent resident, and my daughter i filed for, has been for a non immigrant visa interview before and stated my former name as my name. her immigrant visa interview was denied because the counselor thinks she misrepresented a material fact .i have an affidavit of support showing the name change.
It appears that this might be an honest mistake. I'm order to be on the safe side, however, it would be best to consult with an experienced immigration attorney.
