Please fill in your timeline, it helps people help you.

What country is her home country where she is requiring the police certificate?

She won't need one from the United states even though she lived there.

She only needs certificates from where she has lived outside of the U.S. for more than 6 months.

I more meant her country at least, you can fill in a bit.

And yes anywhere she has lived outside the U.S. she needs a certificate of it's 6 months or more. If you go to the regional subforum for Russia you will be able to find people who can tell you where to get the certificate.

It's a piece of paper that shows if she has any criminal convictions/history. Even if she has none she will need one to show that too.

There is no such thing as a police certificate in the US. The background checks they will perform take care of that. Nothing to provide for the time in the US>

Police certificates are not needed/required for the US. Also, you stated you have no timeline yet. The police certificates are not sent with the I-129F petition.
