arrowApostile necessary for translation?

My fiancee's birth certificate needs to be translated from Spanish into English for her I-485 packet. Everything I read here and online says the translator simply needs to state both fluency and accuracy in the translation. However here (Argentina) everyone we ask about translating the document absolutely insists that an apostile is necessary for the U..S. and everywhere else. Not 1or 2 people, nearly dozen, some lawyers too.


Okay, perhaps an unnecessary extra step, but we tried to have the document apostiled this morning and they refused to do it because of its age --- it cannot be older then 3 month, even though the document was certified as original in January of this year.


Getting a new certificate would be very difficult, as she was born in another part of the country and would have to travel there to get it. In addition, it might take longer than the time we have remaining here.


Is there any reason to get an apostiled translation, if not for the AOS for something unforeseen down the road? Getting a "Translator College-certified" (very official but not apostiled) translation is a simple matter and hopefully sufficient.


Many thanks...

Thanks everyone for the input on my questions during my process of applying and gather documentation, I appreciate that there are people like you guys that share and help out in public forums like this, I'm sure it saves more than quite a few dollars to be honest...


Anyway, resuming my experience dealing with USCIS was actually pretty good, the process was super smooth and I got everything done in exactly 111 days.


In the next few days I'll be putting a post up with a lot more details, some how-to documents I gather along the way, my opinion on various topic that seem like a grey area, and some other stuff I think may be useful for people applying.


Thanks everyone!

We expect to get our K-1 visa next month, and are taking this time to prepare for what needs to be done once in the U.S.


1) We've read that a Social Security number should be obtained before marriage, waiting 2 weeks after arrival for  information to get into the system... THEN get married. But we would like to get married 4-5 days after arrival. Does it really make a difference if we get married first? There would only be one trip to Social Security (no need to return for name change), and my fiancee will not need to work if that makes a difference.


2) In reviewing the I-485, it asks about adult children. Is it necessary to list my fiancee's adult children? They will NOT be moving to the U.S. and don't want to imply that they might be, but still wish to answer all truthfully.


3) An FYI:

My fiancee's birth certificate was not one of the documents requiring translation to obtain the K-1 visa. HOWEVER it seems that it IS NECESSARY for the AOS. Mention of this within the earlier K-1 process might save someone an extra step down the road.

arrowCan I apply for Medicaid now?

Hello Everyone! 


My husband finally became a permanent resident a few months ago. I think in June-July. I'm a U.S citizen and my husband and I never applied for government benefits since it could affect his conditional residency. However, now that he is a permanent resident can I apply for Medicaid? He has health insurance through his employer but if i were to be added, his check wouldn't suffice. I'm a full-time college student, a year away from graduation, so I'm unemployed and I recently got second degree burns since Friday and the pain won't go away and I think it's getting infected. However, I'm trying to go the hospital but I don't want a huge bill.

arrowAOS Approved, without an interview?!

I have done a search before posting this, but the threads I checked out were all from 2012.
My husband and I applied for the AOS, AP, and EAD late April, early May of this year. As of today, I got two e-notices regarding our AOS that indicates it was approved.

On October 2, 2015, we registered your permanent resident status and mailed you a Welcome Notice for Receipt Number MSC15910*****. Please follow the instructions in the notice. Your new permanent resident card should arrive by December 1, 2015, after this registration or after you complete any ADIT processing referred to in the welcome notice, whichever is later. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.




and this one:


On October 2, 2015, we ordered your new card for Receipt Number MSC15910*****, and will mail it to the address you gave us. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

This step applies to applications that result in an applicant receiving a card (such as a "green card") or other document (such as a naturalization certificate, employment authorization document, travel document, or advance parole). Applications will be in this step from the time the order to produce the card/document is given until the card/document is produced and mailed to the applicant. You can expect to receive your card/document within 30 days of the approval of your application. If you do not receive your document, please contact our National Customer Service Center at 1-800-375-5283.



Is this a glitch or have I really been approved without an interview?!


Is this normal?
