Ok so my i601a was just approved. Im about to send my docunents to NVC, im mexican and left mexico when i was 17. My lawyer said i needed a police clearance letter from the town im from in Mexico. I never had any problems in Mexico, and to my understanding im pretty sure i dont need this but lawyer is asking for it. What do you think? And if a family member was to get it for me and send it to me via mail wouldnt NVC think i might of return to mexico or else how did i obtained it? Sorry process makes me really nervous.
I am not certain why your attorney is requesting such document. However, he is your lawyer and knows what is the best for you. Moreover, no NVC's function is not to determine that you have exited for the background check. If a family member can obtain the e record do so.

You need to ask your lawyer specifically what kind of letter is needed and how to get the letter .... that is the lawyer's job.
