.. and this is from my lawyer, Littler Global...

"Please note that if these documents were not registered (**i assume this means - are issued by agency**) with the government agency within the same timeframe as the date of birth, the USCIS will require affidavits from family members as additional evidence. Attached is a sample affidavit to use in the event the birth was not contemporaneously registered. The USCIS will require two affidavits from family members who are older than you attesting to the date of birth. This is not needed for notarial certificates from China."

Red face To p7810456

You have written that if birth is not registered by a time frame then two affidavits are required by family members. See attached form.
Can you please send me the format of affidavit for this kind of cases. Will it be same as for unavailability of birth certificate cases? Or is it required to mention in the affidavit as to why birth was registered late? Can you please print the content of that affidavit?

It is the same affidavit/format as is needed to support unavailability. Two blood relatives need to give one affidavit each to support the birth certificate, not to give a reason why birth was registered late. It is the same affidavit that I copies/pasted on the 1st page of this thread.

Default NA affidavit question

Does it have to be two seperate affidavits? In my case, I had both parents signed on a single affidavit.

BTW even if you have a birth certificate, for recently registered cases of birth, my lawyer recommends getting affidavits.

Exclamation information from the source

(2) Submitting secondary evidence and affidavits--(i) General. The
non-existence or other unavailability of required evidence creates a
presumption of ineligibility. If a required document, such as a birth or
marriage certificate, does not exist or cannot be obtained, an applicant
or petitioner must demonstrate this and submit secondary evidence, such
as church or school records, pertinent to the facts at issue. If
secondary evidence also does not exist or cannot be obtained, the
applicant or petitioner must demonstrate the unavailability of both the
required document and relevant secondary evidence, and submit two or
more affidavits, sworn to or affirmed by persons who are not parties to
the petition who have direct personal knowledge of the event and
circumstances. Secondary evidence must overcome the unavailability of
primary evidence, and affidavits must overcome the unavailability of
both primary and secondary evidence.

-----------

According to this, if you do not have original birth certificate the school certificates are valid. only third preference is the affidevit.

This text is from code of Federal Regulations (CFR), 103.2 (b) (2) which I found after few hours of googling on net.

Yes you need to get the non-availability certificate from your local authority (like MROs, village panchayat officers etc.,)

Default Affidavit from a brother in USA

Hi,
I have DOB certificate issued by revenue office but it is dated recently (a few decades after the birth). I also have an affidavit from my parents dated a few years back - the format is close to what is referred but not exact. Do I need to take a latest affidavit with "exact" wording?

Also I have an elder brother who lives in USA - taking an affidavit from him is easy/faster. What is the procedure in US to do that - we can go to a notary and sign but does it have to be on same special paper as in India (a stamp paper). Any advice. Thanks.

I just spoke to the lawyer. She mentioned that mother's maiden name is required. Need to get an affidavit - providing the reason why birth certificates do not mention mother's maiden name and provide her maiden name - ideally with her birth certificate - if she has one.

Hope this helps...
