Birth Certificates

When you apply for the green card through marriage, USCIS requires that you provide a photocopy of your birth certificate and a photocopy of the birth certificate of each family member applying with you.

Please be advised that each of the birth certificates must include all of the following information:

Applicant’s Full Name

Full Date of birth (Month, Day and Year)

Place of birth (City, Province/State if applicable, country)

Full Name of Mother (BOTH First Name and Last Name – maiden or married name.)

Full Name of Father (Both First Name and Last Name.)

(Both first names and last names must be spelled out.)

A Birth Certificate is available from most countries.

Birth certificates issued by consulates are not acceptable.

For countries that issue Long Form birth certificates (including U.K. and Canada):

  • For immigration purposes, you must obtain a copy of your “long form” birth certificate, which includes all of the information mentioned above, including your parents’ full names.

  • Extracts, abridged versions and wallet-size birth certificate cards are not acceptable for immigration purposes.

If a birth certificate exists but does not contain all of the required information as stated above, or was registered more than one year after the birth, alternative documentation must be submitted.

Acceptable alternative documentation includes church or school records, or sworn affidavits.

Translations:

Any document containing foreign language submitted to the USCIS must be accompanied by the full English translation, which the translator has certified as complete and accurate, and the translator must certify that s/he is competent to translate from the foreign language into English.

The translation must be done by a third party (non-family member).

Country Specific issues:

Saudi Arabia:

Birth certificates are available at the time of birth as long as one of the parents registered the birth.

For persons born prior to 1968 in the western (Jeddah) and eastern (Dhahran) provinces and 1980 in the central (Riyadh) province birth certificates are not available.

Only in those instances can the nationality card (Tabiya) be used in lieu of the birth certificates.

Client Reviews

I've had the pleasure of conducting business with this law firm for the last 10 years. They have been nothing but the best for every aspect of immigration need I had. From F1 all the way to citizenship. They're probably the most affordable, knowledgeable, and most efficient immigration law firm out there. Plus, they always provide responses to questions in a very timely manner. Trust me, other immigration law firms will cost you an arm and a leg for the same or less of a service compared to this law firm. Give them a call, check out their website. You will not regret it.

Because of John and his team my wife and I were able to travel back to the states, get married and have a Green Card without any headaches. John’s efforts were amazing and it shows because my wife and I didn’t have to go to the Green card interview. We had a strong enough case to receive the Green card in the mail. If you’re seeking a Lawyer that will be impartial, he’s your guy.

Marc and John Dorer worked on our case to file for AOS after our L1A was approved. Marc and John are professionals and extremely reasonable-priced. The reason they are able to cut the price is because they don't spend time consulting you or guiding you and will never get on call. All communications are email only, so if you know precisely what you want they will do all the paper-work, follow the trail and get the job done. If you are confused and need advice and consulting, they may not be the right lawyers. But since we were doing our AOS, it worked out perfectly well and they did their job extremely professionally. Would recommend them every time to get the work done.

At first I thought I could have very well gone through the green card application process on my own and saved all lawyer fees. Its funny how some lawyers can charge in excess of 2K for this. However at Taylor and Associates the price seemed more reasonable and felt it made sense to go with one at that price. There were some doubts that arose in our mind which they cleared in a timely manner and seemed very knowledgeable in this area. Its for moments like these when having a professional around helps. While we can get busy with our lives and with laws constantly changing, I would definitely recommend them - a small price to pay for peace of mind.
