Mother in Law applying for Naturalization

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all,

My mother in law is applying for naturalization.

She meets the residency requirement and she still works full time.

However, she is worried that her age (64) might be a decisive factor against her case.

Can anyone share their experiences regarding mature/older applicants. How can she prepare herself for this venture. She understands the civic questions and she will not have any problems when the officer test her.

Can anyone share their input.

Thank you

Age has nothing to do with it -- in fact, there are special accommodations for older folks

64 not that old and not an issue.

Relatively, 64 can be ancient.

As long as she can pass muster on the N400, especially being able to establish good moral character (i.e., no multiple felonies or misDs, etc.), she will have no issues. My grandmother adjusted successfully when she was 89.

Age is not relevant except in determining if she would be excempt from certain requirements. However, since you say that she can pass the test, there won't be a problem. The US does not require applicants for naturalization to be of a certain age (for example young enough to join the workforce).

Similarly, applicants for naturalization are not required to have any level of education (as long as they can answer the interview questions) and they do not have to be employed (currently or ever). So if you're worried about the applicant being retired, it's not an issue at all.
