Well, i dont want to pay 70 dollars that this guy wants to charge me. I speak both english and spanish and can translate both fo these documents on my own. Has anyone done this on their own, or is ti better to pay someone to do it. I was planning translating these on my own, and then getting them notarized saying that im a competent translator. Would that be enough?

See the format below. Follow it & you will be fine.

No need to use a notary, it isnt a requirement.

The certification format should include the certifier's name, signature, address, and date of certification. A suggested format is:

Certification by Translator

I [typed name], certify that I am fluent (conversant) in the English and ________ languages, and that the above/attached document is an accurate translation of the document attached entitled ______________________________.

Signature_________________________________

Date Typed Name

Address

Our time line for CR1 visa took only 5 months and 1 week or 156 days; from the filing the I-130 on the 03-12-2009 to Approval of NOA2 on the 05/13/2009, then Interview on the 08/18/2009 at Manila, Philippines. We had a daughter on the 11-12-2010 named AISHA JOY means HAPPY LIFE.a1_opt-1.jpga2_opt-1.jpga3_opt-1.jpg
