    Joint sponsors must actually provide evidence they currently reside in the USA.

    That is the correct address.  No, you do not need to include evidence of your resident status abroad.  It's best to use a US address as your mailing address, if possible.  It could be anybody's address that will accept your mail. This will avoid delays in receiving any notices from USCIS.  The I-130 allows for separate mailing and physical addresses.

    Yes, but you can also pay by credit card using a paper form when filing by mail.  Payment by "check" must be a check drawn on a US bank in the USA.  Can be anybody's check though.  Back before they took credit cards and you could only file on paper, people would send their package to a friend or relative who would add the check and forward the full package onward.  It can still be done that way too.

    It won't hurt to include the beneficiary spouse's birth certificate, but it will need to be submitted to NVC later regardless.  For a non-spouse beneficiary, the Birth Certificate is definitely needed when filing.

    That is correct. It's submitted later during NVC process.
