You will need the records from the FBI. These are the only national records. Local Police or court records wouldn't include anything that would have been on the federal level.

Isn't the FBI record required when you had something to do with immigration while staying in the US?

You don't need any kind of police certificate from the US if you've lived there. They can do their own background checks. The only police certificates you need to submit to NVC are those from any foreign countries you've lived since you were 16.

Thanks!

I have a paralegal telling me the court records are not enough and that police record certificate is necessary. I've lived in the states for a year after my 16th birthday, and now I'm back in my home country. I've obtained a PCC from here and sent it to them.

Yeah, I lived in the US previously, but didn't need a police certificate as they do their own background checks if you lived here before. Like I said, they just want the foreign police certificates. Your paralegal definitely doesn't know what they're talking about headbonk.gif

If you were convicted of a crime and went to court, then yes. http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/info/info_3195.html#records

And no other criminal history.

Yeah, according to that link, it says they want it anyways, whether it was dismissed or not.

Okay, I told the paralegal to overnight my package. If we get a RFE from NVC saying that the police report is needed then that's when I'm going to send one in. I'm hoping they won't ask.

No, they won't ask for a police certificate from the US as it says on the first link I gave before.

Alright thanks for the help. I have told her before that it's not needed and the court records should be just fine, but she insisted on getting one, because " they need your full background check".
