Hi

I filed the n400 5 months ago and my interview is on Jan

i didn't disclose 2 traffic tickets from 2013 and 2015

But I'll mention it in the interview just to be safe

I did download my recent dmv record it shows both tickets and convicted dates

And it's sayings my DL is valid is this enough to bring

Or I need to look for the recipts

I did find on ticket Conf email that I payed but can't find the second should I just say I have the dmv record in the interview?

You need certified records from the court where the ticket fine was settled. I would highly recommend getting these as they are (usually) all the USCIS will accept. Copies, receipts, and otherwise won't be sufficient. The USCIS officer basically needs to ensure you've settled any outstanding issues with the legal system - only certified records from the court will do this.

They can usually be obtained with a $5-10 admin fee depending on the court. I had to email two different courts to get certified copies of the two traffic tickets in previous places I had lived. They sent them out in the mail pretty quickly.

When did you send in your application and receive you interview letter? I'm also in NYC and still haven't received my interview letter - just curious what the current processing times are.

Thanks.

Sent it in beginning July interview is in beginning of Jan

They told u they need this court proof ?

It's clearly say if the traffic tickets are less than $500 and no DUI or arrest no proof needed

My tickets are from 2013

What court do i contact ? If I live in New York

Isn't dmv who deals with that ?

Hi sorry for the late reply - I was traveling.

 

Well I actually got this requirement from a recent interview experience posted to this forum (or trackitt) by a fellow NY applicant. Long story short, the officer was happy to approve his case apart from the fact that he did not have a certified copy of the court record to show he had paid his fine. He had to go to the court the same day to get it.

 

I really think it comes down to the particular officer you get at your interview, but personally I'm just getting the records to ensure I have all bases covered to minimize the chances of my application being delayed.

 

I lived in a different city at the time the tickets were issued, so I had to find the municipal court online for the county I resided in (the DMV is not responsible for such matters). If you're going to get the records, I'd recommend doing the same for the county you reside in within NY.

All I can say is that it all depends on each interview officer. From what I read on here and other website, some IOs care to see the receipt but some don't. I brought my records and the certified copy of my ticket with me but the IO didn't ask for them.
