lost certificate of naturalization - applying for k1

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am applying for k1 visa but lost my certificate of naturalization. The I-134 asks for certificate number. Is there any other option - the replacement costs $345. I also do not remember if I used my complete birth name or just my father's last name as is the custom in the US. Thanks.

I don't think you lost it, as it's darn impossible to lose it. I'm sure you have it where you have the $10,000 emergency cash and your great-grandmother's irreplaceable diamond necklace. The things that I own and that are virtually irreplaceable are in the banks safe. Have you checked there?

If you, however, managed to lose what is impossible to lose--and to replace--be aware that the $345 is the good part of this. The bad part is that it will take 12 to 21 months to get a "replacement" which isn't really a replacement, more like a certified copy. That's why I call even the CoN "irreplaceable."

Look again, and again, and again, until you find it. I'm sure you didn't throw it out with the recycables, so if it's not in the bank safe, it must be in your house somewhere.

Regarding the certificate number, why don't you look at a copy of it. You did scan it and make a few copies before putting it in the bank safe, didn't you?

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Hmmm, I can't help you but the I-129F form also asks for it, and I see you sent your petition and got your NOA1 already. So what did you put in?
