Medford, MA asked in Immigration Law for Massachusetts

Q: Family Immigration

My parents are in the process of applying for a Green card. All the papers are ready except for the Police certificate. They lived in Burma for 4 years around 40 years ago under a diplomatic visa. They don't have contact with anyone in Burma so they are not able to get the Police certificate. Please advise what they can do? Thanks in advance
