Court papers needed for DUI at Interview?

Hi everyone,

First, sorry if this question has already been answered! My fiance is going for his K-1 interview on the 19th of this month. We have all of the paperwork in order except court records from a DUI he got about 8 years ago. We did not worry about getting the court papers because when we looked up documents needed online and the only court papers mentioned were for divorce and things of that nature. Now we are reading some mixed things online and freaking out a bit. He tried to call the courthouse in Ashford and apparently they are now closed.

Has anyone gone to an interview that has had something similar on their background check and needed to bring the court papers? He already did his background check and medical and it was brought up briefly at both but neither mentioned needing further documentation. Thank you in advance for any information you have!

My husband had a DUI 9 years ago and we did not bring those papers. We just stated it truthfully on the application. Only court papers we brought was his divorce degree. But if in doubt, bring them. Better safe than sorry at the interview. You dont get another chance. All the best of luck to you guys! Camilla if hes the beneficiary i would for sure bring it all! No need to lose anything on that account.

For a London interview: If your police report lists the date and charges, then that may be enough. They typically want something official and not just your telling of the charge. If the police report says "no live trace" it means the charge is now hidden but still needs to be reported in detail. You can order a Subject Access Report from ACRO. Most order that in addition to the police report to get documentation of the charge. You won't be able to get that in time for the interview, but you actually do get a second chance (contrary to what your other reply says). If they need more from you, your visa gets put on hold until you send in what they need.

The London embassy instructions say:

Court and Prison Records

If you have been been convicted of a crime you must obtain a certified copy of each court record and any prison record, regardless of the fact that you may have subsequently benefited from an amnesty, pardon or other act of clemency or the United Kingdom Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.

Court records should include: Complete information regarding the circumstance surrounding the crime of which you were convicted and the disposition of the case, including sentence or other penalty or fine imposed;

That is found on this London web page https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/fiancee-2/required-documents/

Thank you both for the information! :-) The police report does list the date and everything and we have been 100% honest of all of our paperwork. We are going to try to get a court report and if we have nothing for the interview we can at least let them know we are trying to get the court record and can send it over ASAP.
