Hello board - long story short, we updated my wife's DOB to correct DOB about 2 years ago. She immigrated about 30 years ago and DOB was off by 3 years so decided to fix it. Everything has officially been updated except for Passport. I submitted passport update and they kicked it to INS (N565). INS denied on grounds that the DOB at the time of her citizenship is different than what was submitted. Now I have to either submit an I290B or petition in person (unless there is another option). She is now stuck without a passport, which means that if something happened to an overseas family member, she's grounded. Any recommendations?

I do some basic business immigration work as part of my job, but this is a very specific question that is well beyond my expertise. Happy to put you in touch with a specialist -- feel free to pm me.

Just sent your post to my daughter who is with State Dept overseas, previous dealt with immagration problems as a lawyer. Will let you know if she has any suggestions.

Just heard back from my daughter and she can't help since she is not allowed to in her current position with the State Dept. Sorry. Wish I had better info; but if I were you I would be working with/through an attorney. Best of luck to you and your wife.
