Birth Certificate question for CR-1 in China

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Community !

I see that the Chinese spouse Birth Certificate is now not required when filling out the I-130, according the guide section on this forum. Will we need one later on in the CR-1 process? Also what is the recommended number of translated notarized copies ( white books ) you all suggest for the divorce and marriage documents? What about the fees for these pre copy? How many days does it usually take to have them translated and notarized?

It seems that my wife got three copies of any "White Book" Notarial Certificate. You should likely contact the specific notary office to inquire about the price per copy and the processing time, it may vary from office to office.

A Google search may yield some good information.

Good luck on your immigration journey.
