Does mother's maiden name need to be on Birth Certificate? Hi! I am in the process of submitting my docs for I-485. I looked at my birth certificate and it has my father's full name and my mother's full name but it does not specify her maiden name. Is that a requirement for the "long form" of BC? And in this case then should I need to submit a notarized affidavit from my parents in addition to the copy of my BC?
