My wife cannot find her birth certificate anywhere and we have the interview on Tuesday. Do they always ask for the birth certificate? We have her naturalization certificate and passport will this suffice?

What do you mean by naturalization certificate if you are only now going for AOS?

Usually means the OP is the beneficiary who is filing for AOS and the wife is the USC.

Bring a copy of the birth certificate and originals of the naturalization + passport. And explain to IO that she lost it. In the mean time research how to get a replacement and how long it takes.They may RFE and they may not. But you want to be prepared in case you have respond to one. Our IO didn't ask to see everything that the interview notice says to bring.

Did you send her Birth certificate when you did your AOS package? I vaguely remember I did and was asked at our interview and told the interviewer to thumb through our packet to find it. No problems. Good luck.

If you sent a copy with the package they may not ask for it....We had a huge folder of stuff and she did not ask for anything beyond other evidence of marriage...photos, bills etc.

None-the-less, I hope your wife finds it, you can never be to sure with these things.

Good luck

They didn't ask for ours, just our passports since they had copies in our packet. I'd get a new one ordered right away regardless!
