I've been starting to collect all my papers that I will need as it says on the USCIS site that our NOA2 got approved three days ago. I read that I need a police clearance/check from all countries that I've been living in for longer than 6 months after the age of 16. Unfortunately that is besides my birth country, Germany, also Australia and the U.S..
I already sent all the documents needed for the Australian clearance which was fairly easy as I was able to do it online. Now I am struggling with the American one, as I am currently living in Germany.
First of all I saw in a German K1 forum where someone had the same issue that people answered that you don't have to get one from the U.S. because they have their own system to check you and that they didn't get asked for a police clearance for the U.S. when they had their interview... sounds kind of strange to me and I don't really want to rely on a thread that was from five years ago. Does anyone made experiences with this?!
Also, are these the right steps to get the police clearance:
1)Download this form and fill it out: https://forms.fbi.gov/identity-history-summary-checks-review/q384893984839334.pdf
2) get this finger print card printed out http://myfbireport.com/pdf/applicant_fd_258.pdf
3) Fill out credit card form (we don't use checks or money orders in Germany)
3) Then go with the papers to the local police station (I've tried to find out through googling where they do that but I couldn't find out anything about it. I guess it's not something common here in Germany... that people willingly go to the police to get their fingerprints but I guess it should be possible)
Thank you so so much in advance!
