I-129F criminal history court records question

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Visajourney!
I am the beneficiary writing this with permission from my fiance (the petitioner) who lives in Pennsylvania.

 

She has a criminal history which is 3 separate arrests all relating to controlled substance possession and theft.

She has got the police records for each of the arrests by going to the police stations and requesting them but the i-129F document also says

"You must submit certified copies of all court and police records showing the charges and disposition for every arrest or conviction"

What defines a "certified copy"? 

Do courts provide a certified document that lists the charges and dispositions for each case? I've read in two threads that submitting the "whole" court record isn't needed and is more expensive and that all the USCIS wants is a certified document from the court that shows the charges and dispositions. I don't know how accurate the information in these threads were which is why I am asking.

 

 

Thank you for reading :)

yes they provide it, you are to submit all the certified court records which you can obtain from the county where your fiance cases were heard.

 

all 3 cases were in the same state? the same county? then call that county and request it, you need to pay certain amount for each record (in your case is 3)

Do yourself a favor and go get a Pennsylvania State Police criminal background check, I did it in New Jersey. It's worth the effort and small fee. They will fingerprint her then send a report of her arrest then disposition. This along with certified court records will do. Spend the few extra dollars, after this whole process it will be a small drop in the bucket after the thousands you will be spending!
