Police certificates for NVC

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I’ve been having a hellish time with this process (K-1). Received my NOA-2 on Dec 20, 2018 with an expiration date of April 20, 2019. My petition was lost by the government and I was told it never reached NVC. I hired lawyers to help me in mid February and we’ve been given the run around by uscis. First after months of them saying we just had to wait for it to reach NVC, they told us in early April it was located at a “field office” and would be sent back to California service center. Today when my lawyer spoke to them they said it’s on it’s way to the California service center from the NVC for unknown reasons. They ordered expedited processing once the NVC receives it again. This all sounds like BS to me. Has anyone else had such incredible waits? I mean I’m still at the exact point I was on Dec 20 when I received my NOA2. I’m so mad and sad and upset!!

 

Here comes my main question, we’re trying to prepare for the NVC so that we are ready whenever they finally receive it. I have questions regarding what police certificates will be required for the NVC

 

My fiancé was born in New Zealand and moved to Australia when he was 10, never going back to live in NZ after that move. He’s lived in Australia since then, except for when he was in the UK from 2007-2009, when he was 21-23. He has no criminal record or convictions from anywhere at anytime.

 

Everything I can find on the uscis site says he needs police certificates from everywhere he’s lived more than 6 (or maybe it was 12) months since age 16. Today my lawyer said something different than what I’m finding on USCIS website. He said this;

 
  • Records of any arrests or convictions since Adam turned 18;
  • Complete records, even if clean, for any place he lived for six months or more in the last 5 years;

 

That seems pretty conflicting to the USCIS website. Since I have yet to receive ANY correspondence from NVC, I’m wondering what the NVC actually asks for when they acknowledge receipt of your petition. According to my lawyer just Australia will be sufficient, does anyone know if that is correct?! Any NVC specific advice from experience  would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

This is my go to site 

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/nonimmigrant-visa-for-a-fiance-k-1.html

 

it reads the same as your thoughts .. 

 

as a K1 visa , NVC does nothing more that enter it into the system and allocate a number .. then sends it to the Consulate. No documents are required by NVC
