Mountain View, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: For a H-4 application, my attorney filed a G-28 & I-539 with multiple names of the representing attorney. Is this Okay?

My attorney works at a law firm.They have multiple attorneys in the same area.

For G-28 form they filled for my Spouse,

for the field "NAME OF THE ATTORNEY OR ACCREDITED REPRESENTATIVE",

they have three names:

.....Family name: Doe/Smith/Robinson.....

.....Given name: John/Mark/Taylor.....

When they filed my H-1B, they stuck out the other two names, through which the name of the attorney representing my case was easily understood. ex: John Doe was the only name not striked out.

For this application, they forgot to do so and there are 3 names in the application, but only one signature at the end.

I wanted to know if this will cause any denials in accepting the H-4 Application.

This is a bit time sensitive as we have already submitted the application. Any advice is very much appreciated.

A: I've never seen this and seems like a lazy way of doing things and has the potential for errors, like now. Are there multiple bar numbers also? I don't see a problem with the app itself. They won't deny the app, but they might send it back asking for a new G28 or keep the app and request a new G28. It just depends on the officer.
