My wife does not have any last name and her birth certificate and ID reflects that. What should I enter in last name box on the application?
It is not clear whether the wife is the petitioner or the beneficiary on the I-130. If she is the beneficiary, you must look at her passport to see if it has one name only? If so, then only enter the first name and put N/A for the last name. If she has a last name on her passport, then use that last name.
If your wife is the petitioner, then just put N/A.
In either case, I would enter in Part 9, page 12 of the I-130 Petition, an explanation that states that he has only one name as her birth certificate and ID confirms.
