Hello all! Hope to receive some help...First off, im petitioning my husband who is here in the US. He has an approved i601a waiver, on January 22nd we mailed our supporting documents for ds260 to NVC and last Friday we received an email saying they need the Police Certificate, because the one we sent they can not accept. (im including what the email says)
______10 - GUATEMALA POLICE CERTIFICATE:___________________________

I went on the website and it's the Ministerio Publico de Guatemala. Has anyone else had to get this document from this institution? Our lawyer says its the first they here of this and from everyone else I hadn't seen NVC ask for this different document. Since my husband is here in the US he has a lawyer in Guatemala get his documents then he sends it to us here in the US. But even that lawyer has never heard of this. If any one has had this experience, I would really appreciate to hear from you all. Thanks and good luck to all!!
