Need more paperwork after passed CIVIC test

6 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Hi,

My bf went to interview and he passed the history test but the officer can't approve it yet and ask more documents which are court final disposition, police arrest record, police clearance record and the prove that he cancel his voting registration.

He got arrested about 2years ago for driving wothout license then case was drop and for voting he was in High school (6years ago) and he didn't know back then so he was registered for voting but he didn't vote. 

Just wonder if anyone who has to submit any documents like these and how was the result ? Is there any chance he will get approve ? And If he not what is he suppose to do next ? 

Thank you.

He needs to get a copy of the arrest record from the police station if official charges were filed...the court disposition would come from whatever court house he had to report to.  He can apply for a police clearance letter at the police station headquarters building (not the local police station). There may be a bit of a turnaround time to getting these records so you will want to submit your requests as soon as possible, and in person if you can.

 

As far as the voting thing I'm not sure...can he contact the school he registered to vote in and see if they can provide him with a letter stating that he never actually appeared to vote?  Or a letter stating that they have removed him from their voter registry list?

Thank for ur replies

When he applied he only sent criminal background check , didn't know that need to send police record as well. And he will submit in person for sure since the office just like 5mins from our house. Also for voting he did contact the voting office to send him a proof that he got removed. 

Just very worry that even tho he submit all the documents but he still might not get approve.

You've already started the process for him to get the proper documentation, so that's a good thing and it will most likely get to you in time to respond to the RFE.  If you get a feeling it's not going to get to you in time, make sure you notify USCIS that you need more time to gather the evidence they are requesting...that way you will not have "abandoned" your application.

 

Because the incident happened just recently, they are going to be a bit more stringent in what they will accept as proof that the charges were taken care of, which is why they have asked for all of that.  The voting thing, I do know that USCIS will look at that as representing himself as a US citizen before becoming one...something they don't like, but he was in highschool and young and may not have understood what was being asked of him when registering, and they might take that into consideration as well.  The letter, hopefully, will help him out greatly with that.
