Question Birth Certificate Issues...

Hi everyone,

Me and my wife are preparing to file for I-485 but are facing a problem.

My wife does not have a birth certificate and the authority back in India is not issuing one because they can't find the records.

I heard that in India they have stopped issuing the denial letters too! Is that true?

If so, then it appears the affidavits route is not an option either.

We do have a copy of her school leaving certificate that states her maiden name, birth date, etc. Will that be acceptable in conjunction with the affidavits (but without the denial letter if we don't get one?)

What are our other options?

Any guidance would be a lot of help!

Thanks.

Hi,
I dont have my birth certificate and in india,Issuing Nonavailabilty certificates are being stopped now.Though i have affidavit to my birth, it was of no use.
I didnot have my birth registration anywhere.So my father showed my 10th class certificate in the muncipal office as the address proof of their stay in that muncipality area at the time of my birth.So the muncipality office registered and gave a new birth certificate.And since it is late registration after so many years,my parents gave affidavits for that and notarised.

so u can either try this.Or findout from ur lawyer if the birth certificate obtained from indian embassy meets the application requirements?
Please check with ur lawyer and go ahead.

This is all i know,
Hope u get this.i wish u all the best,
vaishu
