Interesting......so USCIS thinks a late birth registration could point to a fraudulent birth certificate........seems reasonable to me.  You need to provide more evidence that the original one is authentic.

 


The most profound statement I have ever read is "What I am to be....I am now becoming"

Yeah. I do not ve that much evidence to submit becuz of the civil war that occurred in Africa (Liberia). I have decided to get two letters of birth Affidavit from my relatives that were there during my birth, a letter from ministry of health stating why I could not obtain the birth certificate  during the time of birth n also get DNA test done b/w me n my mom.🙁

From my experience, they'll accept secondary evidence.  Your mother can produce a notarized affidavit for your birth certificate.  If you have any school/church records where it shows place of birth and parent's name, that'l be acceptable as secondary evidence as well.

The late registration of birth certificate must have supporting papersatz  or affidavit of having at least 2 oldest persons testified the person seeking late registration. Thats what my husband did

Hello. 

I want to share my experience and I hope might help. My birth certificate was late registered by 12 years, I have petitioned for my mother 2 times the first time my petition was denied because I took the RFE not very Sirius. I only submitted pictures and two affidavits and that was not enough. Then I submitted a second one last year this time got a RFE again for late birth registration . I took things more serious. If you dont have school records, medical records you must get at least a certification from school, church, and hospital that they dont have records . If you do have them then great for you !! You can send them along with translations.

Next is DNA they can not obligate you by law but they will between parenthesis "suggest you" to do it, believe me they are trying to help you with that hint.

I did the DNA test following their specification. (if you do DNA option make sure that if you send your documents first let them know in a cover letter that the lab will send them the results) 

And I submitted again the affidavits since no secondary evidence is available like immunizations, census, hospital records are not available. If you have some but not all is a also a good idea to send affidavits from at least two family members adults at time of birth.

After all that my application got approved. 

I hope this helps .
