Non-Availability Certificate and Affidavits - Question

Discussion in 'Family Based Green Card -Through Marriage/Relative' started by CitizenshipFees, Mar 17, 2009.

    I have filed GC for my parents, and they had a query to get the Non-Availability Certificate. So we got non-availability certificate for both of my parents.

    I have a question on the Affidavits.

    1) My father's non availability certificate date shows 1/27 and we did affidavits on 3/2. Is that is ok? The date on non availability and affidavits should show the same?

    2) We have done 4 affidavits, 2 for mother and 2 for father.
    The title for 3 of them says as "Affidavit of proof of birth" but one of the affidavit says "Declaration of Age". Is that is ok? Or I should redo it?

    Please respond, not enough time left.

    My take on it

    The date on non-availability certificate and affidavits was different in my case. There is no requirements that the date be the same.

    I would not be too wooried about the title of affidavit, but get it corrected if you can. If the time is short just submit it.

    Where did u get non-availability certificate from india or us ?

    My mom got RFE for her BC because we didn't have BC and just submitted 2 affidavits from her mom and maternal uncle.

    RFE is asking either BC OR Non availAbility of BC? If i get NABC from Indian consulate in us (she was born in 1949) will be enough for INS or do we need to get NABC from india /place where she was born?

    Thanks in advance

    IMHO: Indian Consulate = India for formal paper work. It should suffice.

    Photocopy should suffice. No need to submit the original. You can get it notarized over here if that makes it better.

    This is what we did to get NABC


    This is what we did, my wife found some contact information on Internet for Commisioner of Nagercoil ...my wife called Commisioner as well sent email and explained her situation.. Commisioner lady seems to me honest person and requested us to send our uncle to meet her in person.

    Requested us to submit proof of grand parents stay in location /locality where mother was born and she gave us lead like any church record which is sufficient prove that grand parents were living during time of mothers birth
    It seems churches will maintain records for 70 to 80 yrs.

    she sent somebody to field verification and inquired about grand parents and searched for DOB records for registration for year mother born.

    Hope this will help...YOURMANINDIA SERVICE in TN is not very helpful at least Kanyakumari dist..

    Finally issued Non availabilty of birth ...This morning we recieved in FEDEX from India..

    Can you go early for Fingerprinting before given appointment:
    Ofcourse you can, but check that office is working on that day.

    Hi Shanks

    Did you figure a way to get the NABC?

    I applied for GC for my mom with just the affidavits and I now have an RFE for BC or NABC.

    I engaged yourmaninindia and they say we need to show address proof to get BC / NABC in Tamil Nadu. My mom was born in the 1940's in Coimbatore and we do not have any address proof for her stay in Coimbatore at that time.

    I am now planing to get one from US consultate in SF. I am hoping that will fly.

    Any other thoughts / suggestions? My clock is ticking and it is already 20 days plus on the RFE.

    Thanks a ton!

    Hello..NABC for dad

    I was finally able to get NABC for my dad..But it goes something like this..

    Its from the subregistrar office from Tanjore district..But its not the Form 10.

    Its just a letter addressed to my dad stating that they werent able to locate any details about my dads information about birth in that office...thats all..

    Will these be enough..It doesnt contain my dads dads name (Grandfathers or grandmothers name).

    Its on the letter head of tanjjore district..

    Also its states that the details are not available in this office..will that be okay..
