My wife, a naturlized US citizen, wants to petition her mom for an IR immigrant visa.

Question B.10 of the I-130 asks to list my wife's alien registration number (if any). Since she is petitioning as a citizen, do we need to put what her A# was before she naturalized or should we put "N/A" in that box? Either way, we would put her naturalization certificate number in answer to question B.13.

Put N/A. Your wife is no longer an LPR, and therefore no longer has an alien registration number.

Did I screw up again? Her alien number is on her USC certificate, was spot to put it in, so I did. But they have a copy of her USC certificate along with her registration number in the form. They were not clear on this, so can't see why it would hurt to put that number in since there was a spot for it. See what happens.

"10. Alien Registration Number" is listed separately right after "9. U.S. Social Security Number (If any)". Assumed they wanted both of those numbers, neither is related to status, but she does have an alien number. When I petitioned for my wife as a natural born USC, do not have an A# so put in a N/A.

Line :13. If you are a U.S. citizen, complete the following:: was completely filled in as wife is a USC. But line "14. If you are a lawful permanent resident alien, complete the following:" had a big N/A typed in.

Operative word there is "are." Once someone becomes a USC, that is person is no longer an LPR.

I blew it and put my adopted daughters A# on the I-751 when she was already a citizen. It screwed everything up even tho I'd submitted her US PP showing she was a USC. They treated it like she was a LPR and sent a RFE requesting $80 more to do biometrics.

I took my senator to straighten things out.
