Singapore Police Clearance Question - K1 Visa

Hi I need help from anyone who knows enough about this stuff.

I read a thread here where the fiance who's filing the application in US Emb in Manila was required a police clearance from Singapore as she lived there for 9months. However, when the clearance came out, it only showed 6mos (as she was in the country for 3mos, went overseas for 6 days then came back in Singapore and stayed for another 6 mos)because according to the SG policy, they can only give the clearance for the second part, or something like that.

I kinda have a similar case and I just need some advice as I'm very confused.

My fiance and I are planning to file the K-1 visa soon and we researched on the requirements and it includes the police clearance from Singapore, where I lived for almost 9months as well.

But my case is, in that 9months, I was in and out of Singapore three times every 2-3 months, normally 3-5 days each trip, therefore, I never really stayed in Singapore for 6 consecutive months because of those overseas trips.

So my question is, do I still need the police clearance? and here's my dilemma

a) if I don't honor my 9 months in Singapore, granted that I didnt stay there for 6 consecutive months, and the US Embassy finds out and disagrees, I'm afraid that they'll think I'm hiding important information, which may cause delay


b) if I do honor it and it turns out im not qualified for the clearance because of my "staggered stay", then it will conflict the "9mos stay" that I honored on the documents, and this may also cause delay

so im really clueless on what needs to be done. will appreciate reply. thank you.
