Police Report - Advice Wanted

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A little background: I went for my first biometrics appointment on 5/21 (as an early walk-in). A week later, I received a letter saying my fingerprints weren't legible and that I needed to go back for a second appointment. The second one was scheduled for 6/13. Didn't hear back for 2 months. Then I got another letter on Saturday from USCIS saying my second set of fingerprints were illegible as well and that I needed to get a record search done indicating that I have no criminal record.

Here's a copy of the letter: http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p174/smurf47/Immigration/rfe_zps4ced0f5f.png

So, I went yesterday to my local police department. They re-directed me to the Clerk of Courts at the County Courthouse just a few blocks away. I explained to a lady there what I needed and she told me to fill out this form for a record search. There were three options: a criminal search, a civil search, or both. I wasn't sure which I needed, so I went with both to cover all bases. I just received the email this morning of the results.

It lists a summary of a speeding ticket I received in June (the day of my second biometrics notice >_< ), which I paid the fine, but no where does it state "no criminal record". Now, I don't know if a lack of this wording is a concern, or if they'll be able to deduce that I have no criminal record based off that the only thing that showed up in the record search was a speeding ticket.

A copy of the results can be found here (with some private data removed): http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p174/smurf47/Immigration/results_zpsd575e83d.png

A couple things that concern me about the results:

-My gender isn't indicated

-My zipcode is listed as 00000 even though I wrote my zip code down on the form

-No arrest date listed, arrest time is way off (it was 9am)

-Doesn't state anywhere that I have no criminal record [biggest concern]

I've never done a record search like this before in the US, so I'm not sure if any of this is normal. Any advice? I'd preferably like to mail this off today, but I'm nervous that this isn't what USCIS wants.

I can help on some question for some you might have to go back to court and ask them.

Gender is never listed on the records, It would have your name, DOB, DL number (maybe), SSN (masked or complete depending on city / state)

If you just had a speeding ticket, there should be no arrest date or time.

These records or letter will never state you do not have any criminal record, instead they will state what they have on record and it will let the receiver of the letter interpret it as they want.

Ah, that clears up a lot, thank you!

So, in your opinion, do you think what I received would be sufficient for USCIS?

I am going through the EXACT same thing with my wife. Crappy fingerprints. You would think after the second time they would use the old ink method. Anyway I went to my local PD and they produced a document that simply says "no records found". So that is what I am submitting, along with a short written letter saying she has never been stopped, arrested, even talked to any one in law enforcement. ( what bothers me is that they have her fingerprints from the ROC, several times entering the country....)

Glad to know I'm not alone laughing.gif And yeah, I think ink would have been nice, especially for those with crappy fingerprints headbonk.gif Oh well though. Just hoping it won't be too long now after they get the police search on Thursday.
