what do u mean by "copy of marriage certificate registration" in the i-130? I thought all you needed was just the certificate showing names and not the other certified licence showing addresses that you normally take to the dmv..

It is the Marriage Certificate mailed to us few days after we got married.

In NY, it says Certificate of Marriage Registration.

The title might be different on other states.
