you only need to prove evidence of Citizenship once.  A passport does this.


YMMV

Only one proof of citizenship is needed.  The copy of the bio page of your unexpired US passport is your proof.  Upload that along with your I-130 and the other attachments.

I've asked a question here before on whether I need my naturalization papers if I have my passport. I was told that the passport is all I need.

 

However now I'm looking at the online filing for I130 and it's asking for a Birth Certificate.


I was not born in USA. I was born in Russia. I'm not sure if I have an original either. I do have a copy. In order to get the original I would have to pay a lawyer in the city I was born to get it for me. Major hassle. But they are definitely asking for it.

 

 

On the list here it says "or passport".

 

But on the online form they are specifically asking for the Birth Certificate here

simple answer

to match the person with the US passport to the person on birth certificate\

even i,  a USC by birth had to submit both back in 2011 when they required the USC to submit a passport

Read it again......it says "Copy of the full Birth certificate (front and back) for the US Citizen or a copy of ALL pages of the US Citizen's passport. This is used to establish citizenship." 

The word "OR" means either one is acceptable.

When my wife filed the I130 for her son, she used her Nat. Certificate as well as her passport to prove her citizenship, but I believe only one was required.  She did have to upload a copy of her son’s BC along with the translation to prove proper parenthood, but she did not have to upload a copy of her own BC.

 

Good Luck!

I should have put this in the original topic.

 

This is what they tell you in the beginning.

 

image.png.181056be1b5966af59e2370760d421e0.png

 

Documents you "may" need. And you also "must provide". WHHHHHHHAT? So it is must or may?

 

According to this though you have to provide Birth Certificate.

Ok so this is confusing.

 

I didn't specify what type of beneficiary I had. When I set it to spouse the box for the Birth Certificate disappeared.

 

So maybe false alarm

They do state in the beginning that it may be one of the things required. But they no longer implicitly ask for it. 

 

They ask for: 
1) Proof of Marriage

2) 2x2 photo of you

3) 2x2 photo of her

4) Additional proof of marriage

5) Proof of legal name change (if the documents you show have different names on them)

6) Supplemental info I130A form
