Correct birth certificate?

When my girlfriend finished up all the paperwork to file the I-129F she told me that her birth certificate's flipside was completely empty, not even a pattern. I read that one has to copy both pages but she didn't because it didn't make any sense. Could it be that she might have had the short version instead of the required long version? I don't remember whether her parent's names were on it. Does Utah usually have or issue the long version? I can't reach her now because she just left to work...

What do you mean? I know that she provided a copy of it. I'm just worried because we haven't heard back since, and I'm trying to figure out if we might have done something wrong. It's driving me crazy ;)

I was born in Pennsylvania, live in California, tried for over 3 months to get the so-called "long version" but only ended up with a small form, blank on the back, like hers. I had a topic up asking about it and one member answered that after a certain age, they only issue the short form. It will be ok (as fwaguy said) :thumbs: - they asked for a copy, she will give a copy of what she has.

Even if you guys did do something wrong, that wouldn't prevent getting the noa1. Worse case scenario, in three months or so you may get an RFE.

Thanks, so I'm worrying way too much :blush:

You have 60-75 more days to wait before your petition will be processed.

What I meant was if the back of the birth certificate was blank... what is on the backside of the copy of the birth certificate she provided... BLANK! so in essence you did provide a copy of a blank backside..... don't stress about this...

He means that if the copy you sent had nothing on the back, and her birth certificate had nothing on the back, then the copy you sent had 'a copy' of the (blank) back of her birth certificate. If that makes sense.

But it sounds like you're worried that there *should* have been something on the back. All I can say is that my fiance's (Ohio) birth certificate was blank on the back, and we sent a photocopy (also forgetting to label the back of the copy as 'blank' or whatever), and I did worry that there might be something wrong with his birth cert, that it might not be the 'right' kind or whatever.... and our petition was approved just fine, without the RFE I was half expecting. The main reason that I was expecting it being that you could barely read some of the info (year of birth, mother's surname, other stuff I forget now) on the original, because it was so old and tatty...

Mine was blank too. In fact, I have yet to see anyone say theirs wasn't blank.

I freaked a bit and so included copies of all pages of my passport, per the directions - as well. But it probably wasn't necessary.

I doubt you'll have a problem - or at least not a big one. And besides, nothing to do now! So put it out of your head.
