    Dear all,


    I am French and work actually in the city of Paris.
    I need a Visa B1/B2 for tourism and business in USA.

    However, I absolutely need a copy of a court record. Indeed, when I was a student in New York City, I visited a friend in the city of Atlanta. I have been arrested in Atlanta in November/December 2001, just a few hours (I don’t remember exactly the date).It was in a night club for physical obstructions with the bouncer. I have been judged for that in Atlanta but I have no copy of the document. I know, it is a youth error, but now I am an adult with a family and I love USA!

    I was this morning in the US consulate, and they absolutely need the a copy of judgement record per scan.

    Are you able to help me?

    I have no documents about what happen, only a copy of my passport.

    Is it possible to find something with my last name and surname?
    I know I am registred because I have been arrested in the airport of Miami but each time I a not really able to explain exactly what happen, because I don'y have any court record.

    Thank you very much in advance for your help :)



    Kind regards,



    Jean-Sébastien

    Yes.

    Atlanta is comprised of two counties: Fulton and DeKalb. Start with the county courts websites and run a search for your name.

    Smart Search - Fulton County Magistrate, State, and Superior Court Record Search

    Smart Search - DeKalb County - Judicial Information System

    If you find your record you'll have to call the court to arrange to get copies sent to you.

    If you don't find your name, call the courts and see if they can help you with a manual search.

    Hi.I am in contact with a lawyer from Atlanta. Unfortunately he wrote me he found no copy of the judgement in Fulton County. It was the most logical county because the event (my youth mistake in november/december 2001) took place in a the night club Eleven50 whose the adress is:
    1150 B Peachtree St
    Atlanta, GA 30309
    This night club is only 1.8 miles far from Fulton County. DeKalb is 6.8 miles from the night club.
    I am a little bit lost because I absolutely need a copy of the judgement. What is the best solution: to continue with a lawyer or find a private detective? Ask to DelKab County? I know the situation is complicated actually in USA and in France also with virus, but I want to be ready when your country will be open to the Europeans. Many thanks in advance if you can propose me any solutions, and be safe.

    Since you don't know for sure which court is involved it would be best to check all of the surrounding counties. Many courts are closed for a while now.

    A PI would certainly be cheaper than hiring an attorney. Did you ask the attorney you've been in contact with already?

    It is extremely doubtful that the USA will be allowing any immigration this year.

    This current incident has caused the eyes of our betters to be opened, and we will be doing LESS business abroad, insofar as having goods made externally for US consumption.

    It would appear that sentiment is slowly catching on in many civilized nations.

    I suggest you make plans for yourself where you are today.

    International travel has all but ended, and US immigration has been halted.

    I have found this link for a research at DelKab County but it is so difficult!

    DeKalb County - Judicial Information System


    My judgement was between octobrer and the end of december 2001. My family name is Guichaoua and my forename is Jean-Sébastien. If you could help me, please

    You might also want that Atlanta attorney to check the municipal courts.

    In a computer context it's "Internet Protocol." It's a number assigned to every computer, similar in purpose to your address and phone number, so that the computer can communicate with other computers.

    Nothing came up in a search of the DeKalb website.

    Try the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. It's a Georgia state agency.
