I just answered your question about the medical report on another thread, but the answer is yes...you are right to assume that you don't need it for AOS, other than a copy of your vaccination record.

Your birth certificate, on the other hand, is something you should have on hand for the AOS interview if I am not mistaken. It should have been returned to you at the time of your K-1 interview, but sometimes they forget, as was the case with my husband. So unless you actually saw it in the sealed package you turned over at POE, you may want to contact the embassy and see if they still have it. I don't believe it is customary to include the birth certificate in that sealed package.

The good news is that your birth certificate is not needed for the initial AOS submission; you can look over the form I-485 requirements, but we only used my husband's passport as identification.

Maybe I am wrong, but I thought you needed to include both a copy of the birth certificate (and translation if needed) and a copy of the passport (with the photo page, visa, and entry stamps) with your initial AOS submission. At least that was my understanding from reading the I-485 instructions.

Oops, my bad...you are absolutely right, a copy of the birth certificate is required. I think what threw me off is the fact that the embassy accidentally kept my husband's original birth certificate (and we are still trying to get it back), but fortunately we had a photo copy and did submit a copy of it with the AOS application.

The good news is that your birth certificate is not needed for the initial AOS submission; you can look over the form I-485 requirements, but we only used my husband's passport as identification.

I can no longer edit this post, so just thought I would retract this statement after being reminded by Craig2006 that a copy of the applicant's birth certificate (with translation if necessary) is required for the I-485. (And we did include a copy of his birth certificate in my husband's AOS application, I just got a bit confused because we still haven't retrieved my husband's original birth certificate from the embassy. Sigh.) My apology for any confusion I may have caused.

Just remember to go to a civil surgeon to get the correct vaccination form filled in and don't make the same mistake as we did at our interview today thinking that the vaccination worksheet was the correct form. It cost another $75 and a hold up now on our approval after our interview and we could of avoided that.
