Felony Record

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I am new here and hoping to get answers. I had my felony year 1999 but I was under probation (SIS) and also DUI. I tried to get my court records this morning but I was surprised my felony is not in their record but I got my DUI record though. As far as I know they should still have my record although it is already close. Now I don't know what to do bcoz I am sure Homeland security checked on my background and saw my felony. I don't want us to get denied, I want to declare my felony but I don't have any record to show. What should we do? What are the other way or other document that they will consider? If I will make a written explanation, will that be acceptable? Thank you.

My felony is regarding drugs. My wife wants me to get my records but they don't have the record of my felony. It won't be a ground of denial if we don't have my criminal record during the interview? The consul might think we're trying to hide my case.

It's more a problem for the USC if their crime falls under the Adam Walsh Act. Now if the beneficiary had a drug conviction, that would be an issue.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

You've already received NOA2. The interview process is for her, the beneficiary. Highly, highly doubtful if any chance they will request your court/criminal records for her interview.

Just make sure she knows all the details in case they ask her, otherwise....non issue

Don't worry about your convictions on the CR-1. My husband was still in prison when he petitioned me and it wasn't an issue.

As a petitioner on the CR-1, you don't need to disclose any criminal history on the forms, just make sure your wife is aware of the convictions, in case she gets asked as part of the CO's job to check if you're in a bona fida relationship.

As a USC there is no problem in petitioning

your wife, unless an Adam Walsh case,

or DV as someone said there is nothing

to prevent you & no police record is required.

all's well as long as your wife has no records

of crimes.

I agree with this!

gratuitytiptucci your I-130 was approved extremely fast are you filling from abroad?

All petitions that has something related to the Philippines seems to go faster. Did you include any extra information in your packet regarding Philippines other then the obligatory on the I-130?


I-130 Petition Filed From Abroad

August 12-2016 Sent I-130 Petition to Chicago.

August 16-2016 USCIS received I-130, Acceptance notification received by email. Case sent to Nebraska.

February 21-2017 Approved I-130 sent to NVC.

 

NVC

April 03-2017 Case Complete NVC in 1 week

May 23-2017  Interview Date

Yes I am filling from abroad, we didn't expect we get approved so quick. And No, my wife has no records. I am aware about Adam Walsh, and yes my court record don't fall under that. There just some people she talked who are from the philippines and their husband (USC) had criminal records who were asked for their husband's criminal records during the interview. But theres nothig I can show bcoz the county police said there is no other record on file. Will the written explanation will help? Just in case...thank you

The government knows all, you don't have to bring your records, they already know when back ground check was done on you.
