arrowTraffic violation. Chances for Citizenship

Yesterday I got my first citation ever for speeding in school zone. Went 28 in15 mph zone. I'm planning on paying it right away of course.
I heard that traffic violations shouldn't affect you but I'm concerned that it's school zone. Kinda shows me as an irresponsible person.
We are surrounded by 4 school zones. You literally can't go around them. Kids distracted me. But that's not an excuse I know...
anyone knows how it may affect me at my interview next year?

I'm going to file an I-751 form in January. Among other pieces of evidence, I'm going to include our joint tax return, which was filed electronically using Turbotax. I need to put a date in the end of 1040 and sigh it. I was wondering which date I should put: today's date or the date when we actually filed the form?

arrowI-751 ROC Questions

Hi all, we have finally reached this stage and are putting the package together for submission in mid-December.  I have a couple of questions regarding the I-751 form.  In Part 5, do we put all children regardless if they are petitioning with us (i.e. my wife's adult son who still lives in Russia will not be part of this petition, so do we include him?  Also, we do not have any children together).


Secondly, I would like to get other's insights into how to fill out Part 11.  Is this used as a type of catalog for the additional information included (i.e. we are planning on including bank statements, taxes, photos, utility bills, insurance information, trips we took together, cards, etc.) or is it for some other purpose?


Lastly, for the affidavits, do we need to send the originals?  Most of the affidavits we will have will be originals, but we have one close friend that now lives in Arizona who plans on submitting one and I want to know if she can just send it to us electronically after it is notarized?


Thanks in advance!

arrowMail from US to Russia: bank cards ok?

Hi everyone,
My mom sent me a bunch of documents via USPS Express Mail (EMS I guess?) to Saint Petersburg. I chose this option because I ordered some items for my wedding from the States and they were also shipped Express via USPS and they arrived fine, in about a week's time. My mom sent the package out on November 21st from the West Coast.


Sent: November 21st from the USA

The status last update as "Departed TOKYO, JAPAN November 26, 2016 4:00 am" (Your item departed a transfer airport in HANEDA, TOKYO, JAPAN on November 26, 2016 at 4:00 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination.)


I thought that this was kind of weird since I expected it to go via Europe and not via Asia, but fine, ok...maybe that makes sense, who knows.


But I saw someone mention something about bank cards in the Ukraine forum. They said it's illegal to send bank cards to Ukraine....is that also true of Russia??? If I had know that, I wouldn't have had my mom send them...argghh. Anyway, I'm just worried now because there have been no updates in almost four days.


I need this stuff for my "evidence" for filing the I-130 DCF, which will be on December 21st......I really hope it won't get lost in the mail!!! There's still some time before the interview, but I hope that customs won't reject it since it included bank cards! :crying:


Anyway, with those who had experience shipping to Russia, is this normal? Maybe I was lucky last time when I ordered stuff?

Hi, I have successfully passed by N-400 interview in November 2015 at the New York City office but still have not received an invitation to the Oath ceremony. I have called USCIS and spoke to a level 2 officer but all they are saying is your case is still under review, call again in 3 months. How unusual is this? Does this mean I still haven't cleared the FBI review? Is there anything further I can do to get more information?
