8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi 

 

I had my interview for K1 and was approved, the consular officer returned my birth certificate and other documents to me but when I sat down later I noticed that they didn't return my original police certificate, is this normal practice?? if not how do I get it back? will I need it for entry to the US or when I change status

 

Any help appreciated

If you had "no trace" then you never need it. I didn't.  If you had any offences or cautions reported on it, then you might need it later when you divulge them to USCIS. We used to have a "race" going with  a VJ couple who filed the fiancé petition the same day we did, and we kept up through each step along the way, him always winning. He got delayed for citizenship getting proof of a mischief event that was on his record as a 12 year old. He still became a citizen a month before me, even having to order a document from the UK.

Over the years I have known both situations...keeping the police certificate and just giving back your birth certificate and  such as that. And I have known a period when everybody tended to get them back. Maybe a recent interviewee will jump In and say what happened to them. Either way, it's nothing to be concerned over.like they need to keep yours because you were a suspicious person. Probably just an oversight if you were supposed to get it back.
