Hi. I had a question about the birth certificate. I know I need to sumbit a photocopy of the original birth certificate, but what about the translated version? I got my birth certificate translated back home by a certified translator and got it notarized by notary puband signatures on itlic(back home). It has seals and signatures on it. I'm not sure whether I need to submit tha actual translation or a copy of it? My husband said I might need the original translation for other things(like when I get a doctor etc), and I would prefer not to have to translate and notarize the birth certificate again :) So, my question is:

Would it be fine to submit a PHOTOCOPY of the translated and certified birth certificate COPY?

Hope I didn't confuse you guys :) Thank you!

Photocopies are fine for AOS documents. If they want to see the real thing, they can ask to see them at the interview.
