We did the CR-1 but I assume it is similar. The CO told us they knew all about me because they 'did their research just before the interview"

So I'm going to assume that before the interview, they look into the immigrants background

Good luck

i was wondering at what point would sveta's background be looked into? uscis, nvc, ??? or just before interview

There is really no reason to conduct a background check until all the qualifying paperwork has been submitted. It would be a waste of resource to do the background check early when the petitioner and beneficiary have not shown they qualify for a visa.

For example; if you provide an I-134 without meeting the poverty line, the case would be automatically denied. No reason to do the background check before you get all your ducks in a row.

The US Embassy/Consulate doing the interview are in the best position to do a background check. The US Embassy in the Ukraine is better able to do the background check than someone in the US. The US Embassy has the location, language skills, same time zone, familiarities with local customs and regulations, etc. to do a much better job than anyone at the NVC or USCIS.

For those who background checks are not done by the time the interview occurs, they are put into Administrative Processing (AP).

Sveta's background check will begin when the US Embassy in the Ukraine gets her file.

Wrong. It begins when the adjudicator opens the file and puts her info into the computerized system of checks. It will be checked again at NVC and the consulate.

Interesting supposition, but I am not guessing.

It is "Ukraine" not "the Ukraine"

We did the CR-1 but I assume it is similar. The CO told us they knew all about me because they 'did their research just before the interview"

Good luck

The consulate did THEIR research just before the interview. USCIS and NVC had already done theirs.

so uscis and nvc does background check on sveta also?

Yes. Absolutely, AND on you. So that you do not feel left out. :lol: The FIRST thing the adjudicator does when they pull out your file is to enter your information and Sveta's into the background check and run that as they look through the other documents you sent. They go down their checklist. If everything is there they check the response on your background check, if it is OK they attach it to your folder and drop it in the "approved" box. About 15 minutes after they handled it for the first time. If there is a "hit" it goes into the "manual background check" box and they do a manual backgorund check which can take 1 day or ....???? The FBI has an office at the USCIS service center (it was pretty well publicized they had done this to speed the manual background checks even though some people seem to think USCIS does not do any :wacko: )

All of this is covered in the pinned topic at the top of the page where a supervisor at VSC informs me of the procedures there. No secret, USCIS does background checks.

For citizenship they actually do TWO background checks(unless you have your citizenship oath the same day as your interview)

If Sveta even gets a traffic a citation (and is convicted)she will need to attach documentation and explain it for the citizenship. They will not disqualify her for a speeding ticket, but they do want the documentation.

i had read somewhere background checks done using finger prints how they do this since none was taken yet or is it only if a hit is made

They CAN request you, the petitioner, to submit fingerprints if they need you to. Not likely. Sveta's fingerprints will be collected at several times, first time at the consulate interview, but these are used for identification, not background checks. To make sure the woman that shows for the AOS is the same woman they issued the visa to, etc. Her last fingerprints will be taken at the citizenship interview.

This is the part they call "biometrics"
