Delayed Newborn residence

First of all, I would like to thank you for the nonstop legal advice. Once I asked you some questions … I followed your advice and my problems were solved. For the second time I need your advice.

I failed to get residency for my newborn baby in time (60 days). I’m two (2) months late. When I tried to process the residency of my baby at the Immigration Department (Ahmadi) they sent me to the Salmiya Department of General Investigations.

At that place I answered all the questions asked by a female investigator before affixed all the signatures and stamps required. She then gave me a paper and said I could get residency for my baby. I went straight to the Immigration Department (Ahmadi) and I completed the residency of my baby.

Now I’m still worried although no one at the Investigation Department & Immigration said there was any case against me.

Someone told me that if there is a delay of even a day in getting the residence of the child a case is filed against you.

Now my question how can I know if I have case. And if I discover I have case what are the steps to tackle the issue?

Answer: Yes, that is what normally happens but if the Investigation Officer found that you, for some reason, were not at fault and the delay in getting the residence was not intentional then the officer dismisses the case straight away and doesn’t refer it to the prosecutor.

This happens although it is rarely done. As such no case is registered against you and you get the baby’s residence.

The fact that you have been given the baby’s residence is proof enough there is no case against you. Had there been any case the Immigration Department would not have stamped the baby’s residence.
