Short or "Long/Extended" Marriage Certificate?

Hello there.

I've already filed my I-130 and am waiting for my NOA2. But I've been looking ahead and trying to see what documents I can gather now, just so I'm not scrambling for them later.

From the U.S. Embassy website in London, where my husband will be eventually going to his interview I gather, the list of documents he'll need to furnish includes our marriage certificate. However, it does not specify if it can be a "short" or "long/extended" marriage certificate. We were married in NY, which has two different kinds of marriage certificates - short for domestic use, "extended" for foreign use (it will be considered "valid" outside of the U.S.).

Which one should I obtain? Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks,

puppygirl

Send him Both..!!!!...its that easy...!!!! :bonk:

Thank you, but the short certificate can be requested by mail, and costs less, where the long certificate costs more and must be requested in person. I would have to take a day off work and travel three hours to get there.

Send him the original of the one you used when you filed the petition. It really should be the long one.
