K-1 Visa Petitioner with Criminal Background

Hi there, been perusing here for about six months, first time posting. Thanks for the great trove of information!

 

I am a USC petitioner preparing an I-129F. Regretfully, I have previously been arrested and convicted of a DUII. I have obtained original certified copies of the arrest record and court documents. But I was wondering if I needed to also submit documentation of completion of all of the sentencing's requirements-- like alcohol treatment, jail confinement, payment of fines, etc.  I understand that criminal history is submitted primarily so that the beneficiary can make an informed decision on whether or not to marry a criminal, and forthcoming petitioners will not be denied outright for having previous convictions.  

 

I want to submit a complete application on the first attempt and not get an RFE.  Do you think it is necessary?

 

I have nothing to hide and my beneficiary is very aware of all of the things that would be found in anything included, I would just rather not include it if it is not necessary. Thoughts?

 

Thanks in advance!

Send in all police reports and final disposition from the courts. All papers from the courts must be certificated by the clerk of courts office . This is something I neglected to do and received a RFE that took over 2 1/2 months to resolve.

What does that mean “final disposition”? Is that the judgement? Does remaining on probation create a problem?
