Suppose my Father name is MARK which is used by my brother as his second name and he sponsored my mother on family based petition. Now my mother will apply for me (son) I-130 and I write my father name as MARC instead of MARK in all my documents and passport. Though my father is deceased so will there be any harm if I use MARC as my father name and my second name? Will this spelling change have any consequence? My rest of family use MARK as my father name everywhere.
you should use your father's legal name - the way it was spelled on his birth certificate, passport, death certificate, etc. - and if there is a discrepancy between the names, try to provide evidence that Mark and Marc are the same person despite the two different spellings of your father's name.
This may not affect your immigration application. But yo should use the correct spelling of your dad's name on all documents. The important point is that your Green Card must have your name correctly spelled along with date of birth. Good luck.
You should use your legal name as it is on your birth certificate, passport, etc if there is any discrepancy you need to provide evidence such as their marriage certificate, other birth, divorces, death certificates, affidavits of identity, etc. You can always seek an attorney to avoid denial of your petition
