The instruction says "a copy of your birth certificate", so does it refer to the original or photocopy of the birth certificate?
Is the original birth certificate acceptable? A friend told me not to send the originals to USCIS and I'm confused.
Did you just ask a question about the filing location?
If so, this is another example of how the process isn't 'relatively easy'.
What you call an original isn't really an original ... it's a copy also. The original is in the government office which issued the certified copy that you are probably think is an original.
Clear? No, of course not .. it's not an easy process.
