15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody , my wife and i just started the process of the IR1 visa , and we have a son together . 

my question is . how to put my name on the birth certificate of our son through the embassy or consulate ( he was born in usa and there is only my wife's name on his birth certificate )

my wife and my son are here in morocco with me and we would love to put my name on his birth certificate so we can send it with the package i130 

 

Thanks !!

But why? She should have just put your name on it. Anyway, I would say contact the county or state office that issued the birth certificate and follow their procedure to amend it.

I don't know how the laws are  there but she told me that they couldnt put me on his birth certificate because i wasn't there to sign some papers  ( i'm still in morocco ) , i would love if you  clarify this for me 

And Can we do the process you said in morocco and how long it's gonna take ? 

Thanks again

Yeah depending on the states, they don’t put father’s name unless he is present there or the mother provided father’s signed affidavit of paternity along with witnesses signatures. (What if a stranger woman puts my name in her newborn’s birth certificate?)

 

Depending on the State, one can amend birth certificate in person or in mail. Google for amending birth certificate specific to your state.

Birth Certificate needs to be from the city one is from, so the one from Morocco will not be accepted by USCIS.

 

if your wife is in texas, it may be possible to amend.

i'm a beneficiary of the IR1 visa ...me and my wife had a son together and he was born in USA .. she couldn't put my name on his birth certificate because i wasn't there to sign the paperwork

my question is : is it fine to send the i130 with our son's birth certificate even it doesnt have my name on it , maybe with a DNA test ( our son is 8 months old and me and my wife are married it's been 2 years ) 

Or do we need to put my name on his birth certificate before sending it  (  he was born in Texas )

I also have his moroccan birth certificate ( just did it ) which has my name and my wife's name on it ( is it gonna work for us if we translate it and send it ?  )

 Thanks

I'm not sure it's even needed at this point......but I would choose the translated Moroccan one since it shows both parent names...............I would also take action to correct the US birth certificate later........
