My Husband has an old criminal record we are trying to find a lawyer but everyone keeps saying he needs his birth certificate. Honduras says he doesn't exist in their system... HELP!!!
USCIS knows full well that whenever a birth certificate is not available one can present "secondary" evidence, e.g. a baptismal certificate, etc. and of course a national passport, even if expired.
For a list of acceptable "secondary" evidence, go to USCIS' website www.uscis.gov and download the instructions to Form I-130 "Petition for Alien Relative". (And if you can find your old Honduran passport, don't even bother doing that..
And do look for a good "abogado" in your area!
Buena suerte hermanos!
