Evidence for UK Arrest

Filed: AOS (apr) Country: England

Hi All

I will be filing my I-751 in the future and notice that I would have to furnish the USCIS with documentation relating to any arrests. I was arrested in early 1997 in England and received a caution (for US readers this means I got sent away with no charges filed).

For my K-1 visa I obtained the UK police certificate which stated that there were absolutely no records of me in the national police computer database. I have a hand-written note from the local police station dated several weeks asking me to come into the station to offically receive a caution, but have no official arrest document. When I attended my K-1 interview at the US embassy in London they asked why I had mentioned the arrest at all seeing as nothing ever came of it, I just replied that the form asked if I had ever been arrested and that the answer to that was yes.

When i file the I-751 I will have to state that I was previously arrested. At this moment in time, all I can provide is:

-the same copy of the UK police certificate dated early 2007 (showing no criminal history)

-a hand-written note asking me to come to the statiuon to receive an official caution

-I can describe exactly what happened, when, and a description of the evidence that I can provide.

Has anyone from the UK (or otherwise) had to go through something similar and is able to tell me whether this is likely to be sufficient or not?

Thanks in advance.

David had a couple of cautions on his record from the UK also :whistle: but he forgot to make a copy of the police certificate when he got the K-1 :bonk: so we didn't even have that when we filed the I-751. I did order a new certificate right after mailing the I-751 in case we received an RFE for it.

I just enclosed an explanatory letter outlining the incidents and that we didn't have the police certificate at the moment, but that the cautions had been discussed when he received the K-1, etc. We didn't get an RFE for it and the letter appeared to be satisfactory.

With what you have listed, you should be fine.
