My fiancé lives in the DR. We know we need to get his birth certificate translated to English. He went to a lawyer and they said the found some discrepancies and would need another 200 on top of the $150 already given to her. Now, my fiancé already has a passport which he wouldn't have been able to get without his birth certificate. My question is can I bring it over here to the US and have it translated?

They dont have any reliable translators in the DR? It would be a little less expensive to have it done there before he does his POE

 

And to answer your question, yes you can bring it here and have it done

You can do the translation yourself, i did mine for adjustment of status and no problem, i did t for a cousin and he had his aos interview on june 6 and was approved without problem, all you need is Dd to translation a page signed saying you are fluent in both languages.

We just got our noa1. Three weeks ago I’m just planning ahead.. i thought a translated birth certificate was needed for the interview for the K1?

Depend on the consulate.  Some require translation some accept the native language of the country 


YMMV

As long as it is in one of the accepted languages.  For example,   A Russian bc presented in a Spanish speaking country most likely needs to be translated
