Help needed

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I am currently filling out the DS-260 for both of my parents, and need help answering some of the questions.

- The form is asking for previous addresses where they lived since the age of 16. My parents moved a lot in their life, but they never left the country, they only lived in 3 different cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina...

- They can not remember the exact address, and exact dates where they lived because its been so long ago. Is this okay if its not 100% accurate? They can not recall all of the dates and street numbers.

- If they only moved from city to city in Bosnia, will they need police and court certificates from each city???? Right now when i look at their police certificates and court records, its valid for the entire Bosnia.

Can somebody please help me with the above questions, I would really appreciate it. Thx!

- Addresses: be as accurate as you can. Look back on emails, perhaps check if your bank has a record of old addresses etc. You (well, your parents) may even be able to visit the street and figure out which house they lived in that way. Provide a cover letter explaining that these may not be exactly accurate, but are to the best of your ability and that they definitely never lived anywhere other than those three cities.

- Police record: Most countries will have one police cert covering the whole country. There are a couple of exceptions to that, but I think those are all Asian countries. Your parents, if worried, can ask when they request it.

^ This is overkill. You do not need to revisit every city you lived in the past and identify the correct number, nor do you need a letter explaining anything.

A general accuracy to your best memory is enough. You do not need hard dates either, just month and a year. They have no way of verifying the accuracy. But if you insist, you can use google maps and find a nearby address. What they're most concerned about is your travels abroad (if any) and police clearance. And no, you do not need PCC from each of the city you lived in unless your country specifies it. PCC is good for your entire state.
