The non-USC must include a birth certificate with a translation if necessary and a photocopy of your current visa but I also included a copy of the passport as well. I did this for the I-485 but I did the I-129f, which you need the same as well once you have your interview.

I only included a copy of my passport. It is a bit confusing, but I think you only need the passport if you have one. That does prove citizenship, right? Strange how this copied out of order.....

4. A copy of your unexpired U.S. passport; or

5. An original statement from a U.S. consular officer verifying that you are a U.S. citizen with a valid passport.

6. If you do not have any of the above documents and you were born in the United States, see instructions under Page 3, "What If a Document Is Not Available?"

2. A copy of your naturalization certificate or certificate of citizenship issued by USCIS or the former INS.

3. A copy of Form FS-240, Report of Birth Abroad of a Citizen of the United States, issued by a U.S. Embassy or consulate.

What Documents Do You Need to Show That You Are a Permanent Resident?

1. If you were born in the United States, a copy of your birth certificate, issued by a civil registrar, vital statistics office, or other civil authority.
