9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Howdy folks,

When we submit the I-485, does the Birth Certificate have to be an original? Or would a notarized copy suffice?

Thanks in advance everyone. It's been a couple of months since we've done any of this paperwork !@#$. I almost forgot how much fun it is. hahaahah. =)

Yup. Just a regular photocopy.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
