Birth Certificate

Recommended Posts

Hi friends,

 

Husband and I are getting everything around to apply for Cr-1 Visa. Our daughter just turned 1, we would have sooner but he was originally born in Honduras and his birth certificate had mistakes on it (parents wrongly listed and gender mistaken) Which I have sense found out, is not all that uncommon in Central America. We hired and paid for a lawyer to fix it, got a DNA test between him and his mother and now have his new one that states on it the day it was revised. How do we go about this situation in regards to the Cr-1 visa. It states that an original is needed so they will obviously know that we had to get the original fixed. Thanks for your help!

Original meaning as issued by the governmental authority.   The revised one qualifies

The new, revised, correct one is the one you will use. You don't need your husband's birth certificate until NVC stage though (around 8-12 months after filing the I130)


Our CR1 Journey So Far:
 

USCIS Stage:

  • Feb 8 2019: Sent I130 package
  • Feb 14 2019: Delivered
  • Feb 21 2019: I130 NOA1 (PD Feb 14, 2019)
  • Assigned to Nebraska Service Center (yay... 🙄)
  • July 31 2019: I129f NOA1
  • Sep 19 2019: I129f NOA2 (Denied - 50 days from NOA1)
  • Sep 19 2019: I130 NOA2 (Approved - 217 days from NOA1)

 

 

NVC Stage:

  • Sep 27 2019: Sent to Department of State
  • Waiting for: NVC received & case number

Correct, and you will scan and upload it.  You will not hand over any original Birth Certificate.  "Original" in this context means the certified copy of the original, you can obtain from the government entity that holds and owns the "original".  Anybody who has an "original" birth certificate probably has a souvenir from the hospital that would be useless for immigration purposes.


Facts are cheap...knowing how to use them is precious...
Understanding the big picture is priceless. Anonymous
