We will be filing our CR-1 in December . Currently all we have is the marriage certificate which was done by Tandag City in the Philippines . We are waiting for the NSO copy which will not be ready for about 1-2 months . I read on VJ that some have submitted a marriage certificate that was not done by the NSO and there was no problems . That the NSO was needed for the NVC stage . Which we would have plenty of time until that was needed . My main question can I submit my marriage certificate from the Philippines to my local courthouse ? What can I generate from that to include in our CR-1 packet ? I'd rather send in the CR-1 with what we have and just get an RFE request for the NSO then wait 2 months to submit it . This process already takes a very long time . I forgot what the official name for the certificate we have (authenticated ? ) , but it is completed to the point where it just needs to be sent to NSO to be filed .
