no driver's license or state issued id

Hi,

My wife's naturalization interview is going to take place on Jan 18th. She got a letter just last Wed listing additional documents she needs to bring to the interview, including her CA driver's license or state issued ID. Problem is she has neither since she doesn't drive, and never bothered to get the state issused ID. She's going to the DMV on Monday to apply for her state issued ID, but I'm afraid she won't get it before her interview. What is going to happen then? She has been working for the past 2.5hr years, and has documents like W2 forms and mortgage payments to prove that she lives in California. Will her application get delayed, or denied because she doesn't have state issued ID.

thanks

if the state ID doesn't arrive, she'll have to explain the situation to the officer. she has to take her passport anyway. that's an ID. if she has more than 1 passport, take them all.

that happened to me as well. I thought that I had enough time. I went to the DMV in Miami 3 weeks before my interview last year in June. I received the state ID a week after the interview, it took a month. I did what I stated above. I also took the receipt to the interview just in case, but the officer never asked for it. I don't drive either.

They need some document with a photo ID, the passport has a photo ID and she has to take it anyway. Does she have any other card with a photo ID. have her take it as well.

every officer is different, but I had no problems, I passed the interview.

I could make this lengthy and exciting, but I will make it easy on you, okay?

You are invited to a birthday party. The invitation reads: bring a bottle of wine and your kids!

Yet, you have no kids. Now you are thinking about having sex all night tonight so that you at least can say that your wife is pregnant.

Does that make sense to you?

If someone ask you to bring something you don't have, you can't bring it. Does that make sense to you?

There is no law in the United States that would require your wife to have a driver license or a State-issued ID, when in fact she has a Government-issued ID, named the Green Card.

She is also required to bring her passports, did you know that? Yet, if she has no passport, which she also is not required to have, she can't bring one. Does that make sense?

:star::yes: funny but clear cut explanation. I hope things will go smooth on your wife's interview.
