Hey guys, I have a question. I am currently at the last stages of NVC (waiting for case complete) for a IR-2 visa. My parents already submitted a few of the documents on the packet 3 checklist (police record [date: august 2014], certified copy of birth certificate) in our IV packet that was sent to NVC in september. Will I have to get a new police record and should I carry the original document to the interview (when the time comes)?

My hard drive crashed and lost my copies of the petition and biographical information pages. I called NVC today and the guy told me we didn't even need them at the interview. He said my fiance just needed to bring a copy of the letter of approval sent from USCIS to prove that our petition was approved.
