And despite that, he has no criminal record or has ever been convicted of a crime, he was just being honest in the interview about something that did not amount to a record, trying to give them the reason that they were fishing for that he assumed would have been inconsequential.
Are they known to reassess their decisions after the fact, or re-interview, if we can prove the decision wrong?
I'm actually confused by some of the info you've given. In your first post you said "Since the interview, we have discovered we have his clean/clear uk police certificate required for our citizenship application, "no trace" - the cleanest category".
Normally the police certificate is a required part of any US visa application and must be submitted prior to interview. So why are you claiming to only be aware of it "since the interview"?
Your story, as it stands, doesn't quite add up.
