I-130 Birth Certificate with Apostille

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I need to get my Birth Certificate to file I-130.

 

2 questions: is it better to get the birth certificate with parents' name or the normal birth certificate is fine? I thought that USCIS might find the birth certificate (with parents' names listed) more valuable as the same parents' names will be listed on the I-130 so they see a match. (can it be?).

 

Secondly, does the birth certificate needs to have an Apostille by saying that this document is valid in the U.S.?

 

I am aware that I need to translate this document in English and will do so. :)

We just sent in a copy of birth certificate and translation with certification stamp.....It has worked for everything ....SSN, DL, Opening an investment account. The only document we have an Apostille on is our marriage certificate. We were married in Ukraine.

I will be marrying in the U.S. so no Apostille for that, however, as the birth certificate will be from Italy, I'm wondering if it should have an apostille, guess not... Let's see what others say about that.

 

Also, I'm going to get the birth certificate with parents' name written on so that it looks more trustworthy.

 

Anyways thank you for sharing your experience! :D
