ok another question from me. we've jumped the gun and fiance got some police papers while i was visiting her in april.

How important is it that they be less than 6 months old at the interview? One police report says it expires in october 2010. i'd hate for her to have to reapply and spend more money for these documents.

If the police records stipulate they are valid for 6 month and the interview is after the expiration date, is best to spent the money to obtain updated once rather than getting a RFE at the consulate. Please complete your timeline for better understanding of your process.. Good luck

i'd complete the timeline, but we are still working on the i129-f packet. we like to be ultra prepared but didn't realize police papers would have an expiration date. we are shooting for sending out the i129-f this monday (fingers cross) so excited yet somewhat frazzled!

It depends on the consulate's policy. The Romanian certificate is also valid for 6 months, but the embassy there accepts it for up to one year after it was issued.

OP: How difficult is it to obtain police certificates in the beneficiary's country? You could go ahead and get another PCC issued or you could contact the embassy in the beneficiary's country and ask about their policy on accepting PCCs.

Most consulates accept it for 1 year from the date issued... check with your specific consulate to be sure before you spend the $... do not rely on the validity date on the paper.. go by the consulate policy..
