I am filling up I-130 for my sister. The required evidence includes a birth certificate for myself and my sister showing common parents. The problem is that my sister is not able to locate the birth certificate and is not in a position now to go back the office where the birth was registered. Is there any other way this evidence requirement can be met - has anyone else been in this position?

There are guidelines for this on the I-130, page 3 - item 9, under the heading 9. What If a Document Is Not Available?

Birth Certificates

Available. A certified copy of a birth registration can be obtained from the local civil registrar at the place of birth. Local Civil Registrar records are often incomplete and it is, therefore, necessary to accept baptismal certificates. If they too are unobtainable, then affidavits from two persons who have personal knowledge of the birth are acceptable.

Frequently, certificates for births occurring since 1946 may also be obtained from the National Census and Statistics Office (NCSO), Office of the Civil Registrar-General, Magsaysay Blvd., Santa Mesa, Metro Manila, Philippines. Certificates of birth before 1946 are maintained at the National Archives Division at T.M. Kalaw St., Ermita, Manila. Issuance of a birth certificate takes approximately three to four working days, for which there may be a fee, plus an additional fee if issuance is to take place within 24 hours, or if the document is to be printed on special security paper.
