Birth certificate of the foreign spouse is definitely a requirement. You must include a copy with the application, and bring the original to the interview (although we were not asked to show the original at the interview). You will most likely get an RFE if the birth certificate is not included with the application.

Why cannot you obtain a birth certificate? If it's been lost, I'm pretty sure you can get a replacement from your home country.

Im assuming that the non availability of a birth certificate is the same for all processes. If a birth certificate is not available one must obtain a 'certificate of non availability' (or the equivalent) from the appropriate authority. You must also have secondary evidence. You can find the various acceptable evidence on the I-130 instructions.

If you don't have the Greek birth certificate - how did you get the K1 visa? Use what you used for the K1 visa (or get more copies if you didn't keep copies (and originals.)) If you are talking about the USC then you can use your passport instead of the birth certificate (or a copy of the Naturalization certificate.) Good Luck

we had a birth certificate but we forgot to make copies. it is hard to get another one. does the embassy keep that or do they put it in the envelope? do they open that envelope at the poe? do you think that the officer at the poe will make a copy for us of it? we forgot to make more copies of it.

There's a way to get the original back from USCIS - you will have to do the search. There's a fee involved (of course) but its not too high from what I recall. It can be done. Good luck

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
