I am applying for a visa to immigrate to the United States through my brother who is a U.S. citizen. The instructions say that I must obtain a police certificate from every country where I have lived for more than six months. I lived in Italy for four months, but got arrested there on a minor charge, which later got dismissed. My brother’s lawyer insists that I must get a police certificate from Italy in order to go forward with my consular processing. Is he right about this? How do I even go about getting the police certificates when I no longer live there?
