Hello! I hope someone can help me because I don’t really find informations about it... we submitted our AOS in March 29, we received an RFE about my birth certificate, I’m 100% sure that I submitted my birth certificate with a complete translation, but they ask me to send my birth certificate with a translation again. My parents got me a new Birth certificate from France and I did again the translation, is that enough ? Or should I had something else? I’m confused about this, did someone already had this problem ? 

I attached the letter that we received below  

Thank you very much for your time

Why did your parents had to get you new Birthday certificate? You didn't send an original to USCIS, did you? Also, translation have to be certified. We did self certified transaltion and it was good enough, but it should have some sort of certification statement on it.

I received this exact letter too send in my birth certificate again, I didn’t have to translate as in from the UK. I just sent them back two copies of my BC, which I copied at a Fedex print store this time. I also wrote a nice letter stating this is a certified copy of my original BC etc.

 

At first i thought they just lost mine but now I’m seeing at least 4/5 people have had the same letter from April filers all around the same time. I’m thinking it’s a slight way to delay on uscis end.

 

Anyway just resend  your original copy and your translation copy, make sure you meet their requirements and I’m sure you will be fine.

Hi! Because I wanted to refresh my BC with a updated date, I had a certified translation too from the site REV that I used for the K1 too, I send it the way they wanted, I don’t know why they send me this letter. I sent this afternoon my birthday certificate and translation with updated date, and a cover letter, let’s see  !
