How to Handle 4 DUIs When Filing Petition? [split topic]

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

oh, I have been reading and reading trying to find something about dui's I have 4 dui's and I am wondering if I need to include all the court and police records and everything with my petition? and what I all need to send with it and how this can effect the approval chances. I only have the dui's and nothing violent or abusive, it is the only thing I have on my record that is criminal.

As T-Bone stated: Stay with facts to answer your question about application of Petition and not be prejudice.

Question #1: You need to include for the DUI's Completion of Treatment from each Facility you attended. You will need from the County Clerk that you completed all required by the Court in the Jurisdiction of that County and State. Each of these separate Offenses will need a Stamp/Seal/Signature from the Clerk of that County and State. (There is a fee for each transcript)

Question 2#: Yes, It will affect your chances due to a Repeat Offender. The Beneficiary is at risk and therefore; that Embassy could be held responsible for approval in the event of relapse and injury or death occurs.

3: 4 DUI's is abusive. It shows carelessness, no concern for others or yourself and that's how it's going to be viewed in your Petition.

You need to show Current proof of abstaining, period of time letters again from treatment staff and these should be on Letterhead signed in ink and Original in your case.

Besides the minimum treatment the courts required of you, I would send records of any recent voluntary treatment. If none, then go to an alcohol counselor and get an evaluation to show your illness is under control.

It is an illness, not irresponsible conduct. Nevertheless, the law says that this illness is a potential danger to an alien bride, which is why USCIS wants to see some evidence that your illness is under control and therefore not a danger to her.

Good luck to you.

oh thank for your input. yes I know its bad but there is no changing the past, I did voluntarily go to alcohol counseling, to a private counselor. I just need to call her and have her send me papers of completion for that and I did the required assessment with the county counselor and completed that, those were all after the last offense so I will gather those documents, the first two offences were so long ago, and I do not know if it would pay to try digging up the documents saying that I completed the required assessment unless it will be on file at the clerk of courts.

do any of you think that I should also write a letter telling about what happened and how my life has changed now or, is the documents from the counselors and the court clerk all they care about?
