Marriage Certificate when submitting I-485 Form

Asked over 1 year ago - San Gabriel, CA

I am applying for my green card now. When I submit I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status, can I just make a copy of my Marriage Certificate and use it, or I'll have to submit the original one mailed by my county, as the supporting document for I-485?
