Court and Prison Records Question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We are in the process of collecting our supporting documents.

Is it required for both the applicant and the petitioner to collect a court/prison record and police certificate? Also, must the records be sent within a certain time after collecting them or will the NVC accept them if they were collected within the year?

Thank you,

Hannah and Zouhair

Added to that - police certificates from countries you have previously lived in (but no longer live in) do not have to be within the last year. I have sent a police certificate dated 2004 from Germany because I left there in 1999 and have not lived there since.
