Filed: AOS (apr) Country: Canada

Hello folks, is it acceptable if I'll send our certified copy of our marriage certificate to NVC (ds-320) or the original is required? My wife is petitioning her mom.

"Have faith in God, Jesus answered. I'll tell you the truth. if anyone says to this mountain, Go, throw yourself to the sea, and that does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen. it will be done for him. Therefore I'll tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (MARK 11:22-24)
