I'm a pending asylee in the US, and I'm applying for permanent residence after I got married from US Citizen,
from the requirements with the form I-485 should be a Birth cert.
I don't have one, and I cannot get one from my country because I cannot go back.
but I have other documents, such as US. Visa, passport , I-94, and US driver license.
is any of this might work instead.
if it's not then what should I Do ???
Please read the I-485 instructions in that regard. It provides other options for a birth certificate.
I've had legacy INS and USCIS accept Baptismal Certificates, School Records, Affidavits from individuals present at your Birth. It is a requirement to show thta the documents are really unavailable, such as an extract from the FAM Appendix BCE
The I-485 instructions describe what to do if you don't have a birth certificate. You could also consult this page from the US Department of State, and type in your country of birth: http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/fees/reciprocity-by-country.html This page will include information about birth certificates, and possible alternatives. I suggest that you consult with an immigration attorney for more information. Best wishes.

can your family back home get your papers for you? many (undocumented) people here in the US need their papers, and can usually get them without going home.

You should file a G-28 form with your I-485 form. Retain an Immigration Attorney to guide you thru this difficult process. They may be able to obtain that certified Birth Certificate fo your or possibly a Catholic Baptismal certificate if you were baptised as a Catholic. Are there any friends, family, neighbors in your old country that could mail you a certified copy of your certificate.
You Immigration Attorney will be able to do wonders for you.
Good luck and God Bless.
