My name got miss spelled in my birth certificate. Will it affect my green card process. my passport has the correct name. But in the birth certificate the letter h is missing in my name. Do I have to apply for a new birth certificate with my name corrected on it. Or can I get affidavit signed by my parents. I even tried to get my my new certificate from my hometown. But they are saying it may take two to three months to issue my new birth certificate. but my company is asking me to submit my birth certificate imm. Can u please suggest me what to do now. Thanks in advance for your help.
Your correct and legal name is derived from your birth certificate. If you want an " h" inserted in your name, you will need to amend your birth certificate. You also can file a petition in civil court and request a name change.
Affidavit will not be enough. USDOS offers on its website a specific list of stemps to be takesn when dealing with foreign documentation. It is country specific.

A simple affidavit from your parents will not suffice for USCIS to change your name. But that may suffice for your hometown to do a new birth certificate. If you proceed with your green card process now, you can subsequently file for name correction when you get the new birth certificate. So I would apply for the new birth certificate from hometown.
