  1. This is true. They will deny it between ages 26 to 31 if not registered. However if you are 31 and older USCIS will not deny it based on Selective service registration.
  2. Hi, I am helping a friend of mine to apply for citizenship. He came to the US between ages of 18 to 26 but did not register for the Selective Service. He just turned 31 and from the research i have done if you show a good moral character for 5 years there should be no issues with the application. Anyone out there who has experience with this? Since he is 31 does he still need to submit an explanation letter and a status letter from the selective service along with the application? Thank you for your time!
  3. Thank you for making it more clear for me.
  4. Wow that is a long time. Hopefully soon. Please keep me posted on how the reentry went i am sure though there will be no problems. Thank you!
  5. Ahh i see how that work. So the letter is your proof of legal presence in the US while the case is pending. Thank you!
  6. Hi, I am seeing that California Service Center is very backed up with I-751 applications. From the USCIS website its showing that the wait currently is about 9 to 10 months and I am seeing the same timeline from the VJ users. Since we are only allowed to submit the application 90 days before the expiration date on the Green Card which is almost 3 months, does that mean that the petitioner is going to have an expired Green Card for about 6 to 7 months? Do you get some kind of an extension while the paperwork is pending? How does this work? Thank you for your time!
  7. Update: I just got off the phone with USCIS (I can't believe it but they picked up the phone right away). This is what they said: "At the time of submitting the N-400 application the green card must be valid and while the case is pending it does not matter to them if the card expires. Showing up to the Interview with an expired Green Card is perfectly fine" So yes it looks like it is OK to file for Naturalization with a Green Card that is about to expire.
  8. Thank you everyone. I also red thru everything and did not see anything about the validity of the Green Card and N-400 application.
  9. Hi, We want to apply for my mom's citizenship but as of today her Green Card is 5 and a half months away from expiring. Can we still apply for the Citizenship or do we have to renew the card first? Did anyone go thru this? Thank you!
  10. Not at all. Some people do it a year after they get married. Important thing is to get married in 90 days. The drawback of not filling is that you can't get a work permit or the green card. Don't worry.
  11. I had the same questions when i was doing mine. Do not use staples just use paperclips for each section. Use zip lock bags for pictures, i did this for my passport photos. For evidence photos i just went to FedEx store and printed out color photos on regular paper. 2 or 3 photos per page but you can also put evidence photos in a zip lock bag. Once you have everything assembled use a large binder clip to hold everything together. (clips for each section like I-129F and so on and a binder clip to hold all the sections together) Go to the post office and stuff the packet into whatever envelope fits it and send. I did this for all of my USCIS documents. Hope it helps
  12. Hi, Next year we have to file for Removing Of Conditions for my wife. I was wondering do we have to fill out an Affidavit of Support form or show evidence of my workplace for this application? Kind of like i had to do for her when applying for the K1 Visa. I am wondering if this is a bad time to switch jobs. Thank you!
  13. Thank you for the clear answer everyone!
  14. Hi, Can someone who is a Green Card holder apply for a CR-1 or K1 visa for their spouse or fiance? What about submitting form I-130 for a family member like mom or a sibling? Thank you in advance!
