Hello!

This forum is a huge help! Thanks so much to all you contributors. My fiance and I thought we heard I (the beneficiary) would need a criminal record check but I haven't come across this in the checklist... can someone tell us did we make this up or does this need to happen?

Thank you so much!

You'll need a criminal record check for the embassy interview, for the beneficiary. I have started requested my criminal record checks now, as they can take a while process, depending on country/countries. You'll need one for every country the beneficiary has lived in for 6 months or more since the age of 16 (including current country of residence). For me, this is the UK, South Korea and Australia.

To OP: You (if you're a beneficiary) must request this so-called "Police Certificate" in your own country.

OMG Totally appreciate all the help - but this at times is so horrendous!!

I have obtained Canadian Criminal Check but didn't realize I need one for the US.

HOW do you go about getting one from a place you lived in 40 years ago?


One day at a time and pray like crazy!

Toronto gal,

Where/how did you obtain the Canadian Criminal Check.

Sorry i don't know the answer to your question but perhaps there's some information here: https://egov.uscis.gov or a number to call?

Thanks so much for your responses everyone!

Hi Carin Lynne;

I went to my local Police Department and asked for a Criminal check that was appropriate for immigrating to the U.S. It was easy to obtain and includes RCMP records. LOL, clean as a whistle as I expected :)

I'll check out that link you provided.

Can anyone vouch for one of the sites that advertises on here - CSI Investigations? When I looked at their offerings, they don't offer the finger printed FBI check but can do full criminal checks for two state for me. I don't know if that is what we need. I don't know where to begin getting something so ancient.


One day at a time and pray like crazy!

Yes the beneficiary will need to have a 'Police/Criminal Record Check'. BUT you're not to do it until you have your 2nd NOA

(2nd Notice of Action) This means your petition has been approved.

I'm not sure where your from, but try to get in touch with people in your area that are filing the same thing as you. They will give you better instruction as to where to go and cost. You can research what you'll need to do when the time comes, and 'getter done'.

Cheers & Happy Journey!smile.gif
