Exemptions from the English language requirements are available for those over 55 years who and have lived in the United States as a Legal Permanent Resident for 15 years, or are over 50 years old and have lived in the United States as a Legal Permanent Resident for 20 years.

According to the article above that I've found in many places around the internet. So what type of document we need to submit along with N-400?

Thank you so much

Here is a link to the information you request on the USCIS website: http://www.uscis.gov...000b92ca60aRCRD

It is just an exemption from the English language requirement - you are still required to do the Civics test:

Note: Even if you qualify for the "50/20" or "55/15" English language exceptions listed above, you must still take the civics test. You may be permitted to take the civics test in your native language, but only if your command of spoken English is insufficient to conduct a valid examination in English. If you are age 65 or older and have been a permanent resident for at least 20 years at the time of filing for naturalization, you will be given special consideration regarding the civics requirement.
Medical Disability Exceptions to English and Civics

You may be eligible for an exception to the English and civics naturalization requirements if you are unable to comply with these requirements because of a physical or developmental disability or a mental impairment.

To request this exception, submit Form N-648, Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions. This form must be completed by a licensed medical or osteopathic doctor, or licensed clinical psychologist.

I think they cut the civics test down to some very basic questions. Whenever I've printed my flashcards and the guide there were some questions marked with an asterix that were meant to be for ppl with test exemptions. check the USCIS website.

The English requirement is so ridiculously low already, it's a joke. If one can't write: "Our President's name is Obama," he or she should really not become a US citizen.

And while we're at it: if I had any say in this, every USC, born or naturalized, should pass the civics test before getting a license to vote in any election.

Many Americans don't even know the name Washington, or what city was named after him, or who the Vice President is, or how many States the Union has. How can we as a nation expect those people to make informed decisions about the future of our country, and not fall victim to pure and malicious political propaganda?

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

"What city was named after George Washington?"?!? That's even worse than "Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?" :lol:

Seriously, those two questions should be included in the USCIS Civics tests. I mean it. They wouldn't even have to count. They could be secretly flagged on the examiner's computer as "Wrong answers here don't count." Just for s**ts 'n' giggles. Just to show that the Federal Government has some humanity remaining in it's monstrous and twisted soul. That would be so great. :)

Let's start a petition! Who's with me? :)

Our concentrated study was in that 4 1/2 hour drive to our field office, helped killed the time. Say our because, felt it was my responsibility to also know all the answers since I was the sponsoring USC for my wife. Ha, wife forgot most of the answers a week later, in a recent study, a college graduate only retains about 14% of what they learned.

Civics test would have been very easy if that is all you had to do, but everything in this world is getting unnecessarily complicated. But if you want your USC, you have to do it. Wife said she only spent a maximum of two minutes for both the civics and English test in a 43 minute interview. Most of the time was spent was proving she was married to me. Her IO could have come out to the waiting room and just asked me if we were married. Or could of asked me the name of my mother-in-law. I don't know, some ten foot long Spanish name, I just call her mom. Maybe our evidence was better.
