How to translate Israeli wedding certificate for I-130?

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I've been reviewing the posts on this message board and you all seem so friendly. I know this topic has been hashed out but I can't seem to get a straight answer. I (an American citizen) married an Israeli in Israel. We have a Hebrew wedding certificate. How exactly do I need to get it translated to English? Does having a fully bilingual person translate and certify ("sign") it suffice or must I have it professionally translated and notarized?

Will we ever at any point in the process be required to present a notarized translation?

Thank you so much! Appreciate your help.

JJ

The section of your post I placed in bold is sufficient. The person doing the translating would sign an attestation statement that states the translation is accurate and that the person doing the translating is competent to do so.

A person fluent in both languages can do it, but we used a company in NY that came up easily through google for some docs, and we found them very professional, and reasonably priced. Even though I now know that my husband could do it, I would use them again. We faxed the page over and picked it up in a few hours (or they can mail to you). You will not need a notarized translation, but this company does it for you anyway.

not sure if this is available in Israel, but I obtained an international version of our marriage certificate (at city hall of the town where we married) and had an apostille stamp affixed to it. Both NVC and USCIS accepted that just fine.
