i am already in the usa and just going to start the adjustment of status process. i do not have my birth certificate here, but i have a certificate from my school which clearly writes - her date of birth according to school record is..... is that enough or i will have to get my family do the english translation of my birth certificate and send it to me? when actually is birth certificate needed? during the visa issuance or at the time of filing a petition? please give some valuable suggestions.
