I-130 questions

I spoke to my lawyer's assistant today about my I-130 petition, she told me to fax her my birth certificate because se didn't include it with the petition (im the beneficiary). She said she was going to mail it in today and that there wouldn't be any problems. I checked the Uscis website for the I-130 instructions and it doesn't say you need to send in the beneficiary's birth certificate. Do any of you know if my birth certificate is needed now? And if it isn't at what point of the process will it be needed? Also if it is needed now will there be any problems with my petition because we're sending the birth certificate in a separate package?

Thank you

It's not needed now. It's needed for the interview stage. No harm in sending it but it's unlikely to get included in your file.

Hi ivy88,

Here is a link to the Colombian club here on VJ which has a ton of information about going through the embassy in Bogota once you get to that stage and even before if needed. Good Luck with the process

Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

yes you need to send a certified copy, if it's just a xerox that will be another RFE. all docs should be original or certified copies. keep a xerox copy for the interview.

Please don't give out wrong informations. OP is asking for USCIS stage, no certified or originals are needed for that stage.

And as Pushbrk stated, its not necessary to send off your BC but it won't harm you either.

Good luck
