Can I ask why she did not bring the original with her when she came here?


She had a certified copy+translation as part of her K1 Visa to come here. Unfortunately I didn't realize it would be confiscated by immigration at the POE.

I'm the U.S.C. and married my wife last Nov 24th. She has a SS# now and we've changed her last name (awaiting new card now). She came in on a K1 and went through immigration just fine--but they took her package of documents that had her BC + translation. She does have her own int'l passport.

In the I-485 document I only see that it states: "Attach a copy of the fiancé(e) petition approval notice and the marriage certificate" for K1s (our case).

We are getting ready to send in her AoS application, and the guides here say we need her birth certificate (and English translation). Is that actually true? To get a certified copy at this point would be particularly difficult and would have to be done by her mom back home.

Yes, you need to submit her birth certificate just sent a photocopy and bring the original on the interview.
