New N-400 Application for 2014?

Most of you may have noticed that the below the link to the N-400 form on the USCIS website is a note that states that a new form is on the way. I've been looking for information on the next revision of the N-400 form and all I found were the following two links:

http://hiaschicago.o...nship-form.html

http://www.aila.org/...spx?docid=43342

The first link is an an article that states that the form is going from 14 sections to 17 sections. This article also states that the revised form was put out for public comment and that the comment period ended in February of 2013.

The second link is one of the responses provided to USCIS during the public comment phase. While I haven't seen the proposed new form, reading this response gives an indication of some of the changes. Clearly, the new form will be much longer; 21 pages long and will have more background questions about family members. Unfortunately, the potentially confusing and perhaps unnecessary question about "citations" has not been changed. The points raised in this response letter are excellent, and I hope that USCIS takes them into consideration before they release the new form.

Does anyone have any more information on this?

Here's what I found on the proposed new form (has links to pdf form):

 

http://www.noticeand...5-fdt-2895.aspx

 

http://www.noticeand...f-fn-12323.aspx

 

Proposed form (March 2013): http://www.noticeand...3-fn-26002.aspx

 

Proposed form (December 2012): http://www.noticeand...n-fn-11287.aspx

 

I've looked at the proposed draft form and aside from are your parents USCs (ie you may be a citizen yourself) and further drilling down of yes/no questions I don't see many problems. Yes, it's a bit longer than before but don't think it will take any extra time to fill out than it took previously.

 

I'd imagine all people potentially thinking of naturalizing are already keeping track of their addresses and trips out of country, doing their taxes and staying out of trouble.

Go to http://www.uscis.gov/n-400 and use the form available there. That page will always have the latest/current version.
If you're applying in February, you'll want to double-check at that time.

Looks like the new 21-page form is finally here: http://www.uscis.gov/n-400

The links in the posts above show some of the discussion that went on before the form was finalized.

 

Note that the old form can still be used until May 4th, 2014: http://www.uscis.gov...-naturalization
