Is your original birth certificate in English?

You need to include a photocopy of your spouse's US passport for I-864.

Okay, so I don't need a copy of my spouses US passport?

Does it look like I have everything I need?

No you don't need a copy of your spouse's passport. Yes you have everything you need.

You need to include a photocopy of your spouse's US passport for I-864.

No you don't. If the sponsor is the original petitioner, then no proof of citizenship is needed (because it was already proven with the petition). You only need to include a copy of the NOA2 from the I-129F.

IF you have a joint sponsor, then you need to include proof of citizenship or LPR status for them.
