Default Birth Certificate

Need urgent help Gurus.

I think my birth certificate would be an issue. Getting the affidavit would take a lot of time.

Somebody told me I can get it from the Consulate also. Is the birth certificate from Indian Consulate valid for I-485?

Please let me know.

Thanks

Default Parent's name mismatch between passport and birth certificate

Are there issues if mother's first name has a minor mismatch between 485 applicant's passport and birth certificate?

Default I believe it should either be all English or dual language

I think it is an issue if it's entirely in Telugu. They expect it to be either all English or dual language (one of them being English obviously) but check with your lawyer. My birth certificate is a dual language one.

Default Date of Certificate

I read that date of certificate should be within a year of Birth Date. Is this importart. Probaly its difficult to get older date on certificate.

This is what the e-mail from my employer says

"Copy of Birth Certificate with certified English translation, if necessary. USCIS requires that a birth certificate contain ALL of the following information:
Name (must have a name, can not be “male” or “female”), Date of Birth, Place of Birth, Parentage "

Not sure who needs to certify it.
