Where to get police certificates

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband who is a USA citizen and I who is a permanent resident (lived in USA for 5 months) need to get a police check/certificate to show that our USA records are clear. 

It says online that my husband should go to the nearest police department and they will do a search and print a document as a US citizen. But can I do this as a permanent resident of only 5 months? Or is it a different procedure/ not possible?

Who is asking for US police certificates? Where online does it say US police certificate are required - provide source? What is your case type?

It is for the UK courts. We have a court case going on in the UK which requires USA police certificates. We have to get them ourselves as the UK court was unable to get them on our behalves as their is some sort of law restricting them if the request is for a family law case.

Ahh got it; I don't know much about UK immigration and Court systems --

In any case, I think as permanent residence of the US you can also get a police check/report regardless of how long you've stayed in the US as a permanent resident. Whether you've stayed 1 day or 1 week or 1 year, etc it doesn't matter. The procedure won't be any different between US citizen and LPR. Unless the UK court says only get a report if you've lived more than 5 months in the US. 

 

Side-note: People come to the US and commit crimes within 1 day so imagine 5 months. Hopefully you get where I'm going with this.

For the US the best way to to get fingerprinted and order a FBI report.   You order one for your personal records.

Yes that's what I thought because obviously people who move to the us and start work need a police clearance for a lot of jobs. 

Thanks for the advice

Actually you should heed @Paul & Mary advice and get FBI report instead. I'm not sure what exactly the UK court is requesting but the FBI report is best.
