p.s. Does anyone know what the recent time is for submission to acceptance for spouse visas are lately?
p.p.s. Thanks for having this forum and all the good info!!!
The State Department explanation of the apostille is here: Apostille Requirements
As they say, you generally need to get an apostille of your marriage certificate from the State Secretary of State for the state in which you were married. Google "apostille" and the name of the state where you were married to find the specifics for your state. The purpose of the apostille is to validate the marriage certificate. But I suspect you may need to get back to the county official about correcting the information about your husband, particularly if his place of birth was mis-identified.
