Questions IV package (CR-1/IR-1 visa)

Im preparing to get documents ready for the IV package. I have some questions.

1) Does the photocopy of my wifes biographic page of the passport need to be translated?

2) Im petitioning my son (stepson). According to the Dept of state and US embassy Bogota webpage it doesnt mention anything about it. My wife has already obtained a legal document signed by his biological father granting permission. Does this document have to be sumbitted to NVC?

3) Translations, is it better for her to send me remaining documents and that I have them translated here in the US, or for her to get them translated there...(running around Bogota to get apostille..etc, we already did that for the I-130 documents while I was there).

4) NVC accpets certified copies, does this mean getting a copy with a stamp from a notaria? Im worried documents will get lost, and trying to obtain new originals is a pain in the cola in Colombia. We had to sit in a flota for 8 hours just to get a Batismal Certificiate.

Gracias!

I know what u mean its a pain I just went thru the same process. The NVC requires translations of documents ONLY if they're in a language different than English or the official language of the country in which the interview will take place so for Colombia thats spanish. Unless ur wife was born in lets say Brazil and her documents are in Portuguese there is no need to translate them at this point.

And yes they do have to have the stamp from "La Notaria" to make them official doc.

Thanks, sorry if you see this here and on the club Colombia part 2 forum, I ment to just post it to the latter. I also got the same info about from Diana. When time comes to submit IV documents I would like to send certified copies, hopefully I wont get a RFE for orignal docs. Thanks again.
