prison records?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

so my husband has had 2 arrests in the past but was not convicted either time do to lack of evidence and false accusations. his police record is clean and for some reason his court record came out empty which is weird since it seems like there should be something in the system. we were honest and put the arrests down on the ds-230 form. anyways when he was arrested on the first crime how it works here is you automatically have to do remands so he was in jail for 3 months waiting for a trial that was eventually just dropped. do i need a record from the prison for the remand time? he never SERVED time.

I would think no. However, it would be helpful if you mentioned the country. If he wasn't convicted then he had no prison sentence.

He will still need to provide records of what happened. It shouldn't be a problem, since he was not found guilty. But you must disclose the arrests and the time served and what happened.

27 Feb 2014: Whoa, life happened. Planning move "back home" together to Republic of Ireland by end of April.

29 Apr 2014: POE Dublin through Heathrow

15 May 2014: Received formal residency/work permission (GNIB card with Stamp 4, one year renewable) for the ROI

well as i said no time was "served" because even though you are locked up for remands it isnt served time. i already told them of the arrests, but there is no documentation of them. the country is belize. i am thinking since he was innocent maybe they just tossed the records. it wouldn't surprise me here. but i don't know what to show them. i might give them embassy a call but i usually don;t get anywhere with them.

Try email. Worst case, is they'll tell you if they need something and what, at the interview.
