Marriage cert. for Interview - will they accept a copy?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just got our interview date - yay! My question is, we only got one certified copy of our marriage document, and we sent that in with our I-485 application. The interview letter says you must bring a certified copy with you, but now we only have copies not a certified copy. Will they accept a copy or do i need to get another certified copy? Will there be time, our interview is on August 10th.

Thanks in advance!

We went to the Court House and got our certified copy of our Marriage Certificate while we waited. It only cost $6 or $7.

I got a second copy by going online and ordering it (from the Court House). It arrived in a couple of weeks, if I recall.

I just sent a copy of the marriage cert with the application.. Took the original for the interview and the IO did not even ask to look at it (or any other original documents for that matter).

Same here, except ours was $8. You can always call and ask at the Town or County clerk's office that issued the certificate. Some offices have website where you can look all of this up, and apparently, order other copies.

You have enough time. The certified copy is issued the same day while you wait. I went to the City Clerk office in New York and paid $15. They made me fill out a form, and within 5 minutes issed me a certified copy. They may or may not ask for it at the interview since you sent in the original. But its better to be prepared rather than get a RFE at the last minute. Best of luck.
