Marriage Certificate Question

Thx in advance for the valuable input. Applying for a CR-1 visa for my Thai wife. Will I need to submit a certified copy of the marriage certificate or an apostille of the marriage certificate when I submit the initial I-130 CR-1 visa paperwork to the US, and also for the follow-up paperwork for the Thai US Embassy? As a courtesy, I was asked this at the court house the other day, when we applied for the marriage license.

You will need a certified copy for NVC. Get about 4 Certified copies. Also will need one at the embassy interview.

I'm not sure if you can get away with submitting a apostile for the original submission. I "think" you can but someone else here may know better!

Certified copy. You are not "applying for a visa" for anybody. You are petitioning. If/when the petition is approved, your wife will be invited to apply for a visa in Bangkok.

I sent them my actual marriage certificate. You get two in Thailand. One for the woman, and one for the man. Hopefully I'll get it back at the interview.

Done for 3 years or 10 years. Haven't decided yet.

(I'm going for the IR-1 and blowing off the K-3. Even if it takes an extra couple months, it's worth it to not have to deal with USCIS again)

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Note:

Please fill out I-130, wait 6 months for approval, then 3 more months for an interview. (Unless of course we've bombed your country into the stone age, then you qualify for expedited processing.)

Welcome to the USA!!!

I should clarify. I sent the original to NVC, not USCIS.

LOL... I don't drink. We live and die in this process by semantics and terminology. It's never too soon to comprehend and adjust to that but often it happens too late with disasterous effect. I care. If you don't, kindly keep the peace by remaining on topic. I'm not the topic.

You can get certified one through Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
