If I get a ticket. It'll be affect to me becoming to citizen?

I live in MA

The ticket you got is pretty serious as a moving violation but isn't a concern when it comes to your citizenship really. Tickets for DWI for example can be a problem.

Ning is right, it is a serious violation. If you are going to drive, you need to understand the rules of the road. This is very clearly explained in every driving exam booklet.

I know but it not be affect to my citizenship right?

No.

List the citation on the application and twke proof that you've paid the fine with you to the interview.

The citation itself won't affect your naturalization application. However, if you failed to pay it and ended up with an arrest warrant, that would affect your naturalization.

This is true.

I recall few months back, there was a post here on VJ where someone received a

(if I recall a speeding) traffic ticket, and wasn't properly taken care of,

and it ended up escalating to a bigger problem,

and I believe the person was either denied of USC or they delayed the

approval decision back on further investigation.

In America, traffic tickets around school and construction zones are

taken pretty seriously...so take care of the ticket promptly (ideally try get out of it

through a safe driving class if they allow it).

If the ticket has not been paid by the time you go for your interview, your application will be delayed for further evidence. I have read about a recent case on this forum in which OP got a ticket and decided to make a deal with the court instead of paying for it. OP's application was then delayed when OP went for naturalization ceremony because USCIS IO wanted to see proof that the ticket was settled. So make your choice wisely because you could end up with two options (assuming your interview is close):

- You end up with point on your license but your application is not delayed.

- Your application is delayed but you may be allowed traffic school and no point recorded.

If you still have plenty of time between now and then, go to court and take the driving class if allowed. The best of both worlds.

Your post is vague in some ways. If is a question for example. The header indicates you probably got a ticket. I don't see anything that say you did or didn't pay a fine. If you got a ticket take care of it. If you didn't then don't.

A simple moving violation ticket isn't going to affect your chances at citizenship.

How did you decide there is an outstanding fee for the ticket?

So when you pay your ticket at the court, there will be some court paperwork/receipt issued. Take those with you to the interview.

I live in MA

A citation for a traffic violation will not affect you as long as you pay or fight for your case to get dismissed. Now if the ticket you have is a criminal citation(misdemeanor), then that may cause a problem or delay with your immigration petition if you don't get it dismissed or reduced to a traffic violation.

It should say on your citation if it is a traffic citation or a criminal one. Most criminal ones don't have a fine amount and orders you to present yourself to court at a specific time and date.

Good luck
