My mum is about filing for my I-130 with a different date of birth as a child but I came in to the US with a wrong date of birth on my passport for school program, then I started making corrections to some of my documents before leaving my country, right now my mum is about filling for me in the US as a child with the corrected Date of Birth, how can I correct such mistake and what steps do I need to take after she files the form I-130, I have the corrected birth certificate and affidavit with some other supporting documents with me. My question is won’t there be any problem with the USCIS?
Thank You very much
You will need to provide your correct date of birth on any future petitions and applications. The
USCIS will see the difference in your date of birth. Provide your birth certificate and explain the previous error in prior petitions or applications. This will be no problem as long as the mistake was an error or no consequence.

How did you make a mistake on your date of birth?
Providing false and misleading information for immigration benefits is considered fraud.
How did you have the birth certificate amended?
