N400 Interview - Traffic ticket "certified statement"

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have filed an N400 and have my interview in about a month, In the interview notice there is a mention of bringing a "certified statement from the arresting agency or applicable court indicating no charges were filed" how exactly do I get one of these? I have a speeding ticket from 2011 and one for expired tags from 2014. Do I go to court house/police station to get this statement? What exactly do I ask for?

thank you for your help!

No need for all that. Was it speeding ticket or reckless driving? If just speeding ticket and expired tags then no issue. Usually from your county's court website you can print the case status with fine paid mentioned on it.

Go to the courthouse that handled the case and ask for the case papers, case disposition, or something stating that you paid the fine.

Some counties have online records, so you may be able to print out a payment receipt at home. Most interviewers will accept this, some will insist on a court document, many won't ask for anything related to traffic tickets.

USCIS is not supposed to ask for this (according to their own rules), but many officers do, so it's better to be prepared.

The sentence about a certified statement is sent to anyone who checked the box about being arrested or cited... they need more formal documentation from people who were actually arrested.
