4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All:

I will be applying for Citizenship shortly but have a few questions after going through the N400 form.

1) Question about Race. I'm from Pakistan. So would that make me Asian? I cant see any other box to click which says Others.

2) Im applying on the basis of marriage. And the question about Trips outside USA in the past 5 yrs. Should I just calculate it as 3 yrs ???

3) Affiliations. I belong to a few Medical associations. Should I mention them with Affiliations.

4) I got a ticket for illegal U Turn, went to court and paid the fine for it. Now on the question about

Have you ever committed a crime or offense for which you were not arrested ? Y or N

Have you ever been arrested,cited or detained by law? Y or N

Kindly help me out in answering these questions. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

No such thing as a white race, a typical hillbilly word the USCIS decided to use. But if they did start off with white, should have followed it with yellow, black, (that they do), red, or tan. does give the option of selecting one or more, but none. Could leave that blank and let your IO decide or check all of them. Latter would comply with the instructions.

Question asks, how many days out of this country in the last five years, that is what they asked, and that is what they got. Went back 1826 days from the tentative date of the application, subtracted the number of days my wife was in this country since first coming here, then added the number of days she was out of the country since becoming a LPR. If they don't like that, they can change that question, or just get rid of it. Claim in that table below, to record all trips since becoming a LPR and they just want the total of that. If that is what they want, they can ask that. Not about to change their forms.

Yes, that again is what that question asks, any organization which includes the boy scouts, if you were one. Wife did charitable work for the Red Cross, United Way, and several others, we listed all of those. Says nothing about anti-American organizations.

Never a good idea to make a U-turn on a one way street. Redid our mains street with no parking on one side parking on the other with no U-turn signs all over the place. Get around that by finding a driveway or a parking lot, making a left turn then backing out. Cop watched me, couldn't do a damn thing about it, it like they want to get you. But a minor traffic violation you do not have to report if the fine was under 500 bucks. But here lately, some field offices are asking for proof if you paid that fine. This is asked verbally, not on any of the forms or required evidence. So you get a decision cannot be made at this time.

Its like they think the DMV is not doing their job, in our state, if you don't pay the smallest of fines, send the cops over that remove the license plates off of every vehicle registered to you plus take your drivers' license away. So you not only end up paying that small fine, but a really steep fine to get your plates and drivers' license back.

1) Question about Race. I'm from Pakistan. So would that make me Asian? I cant see any other box to click which says Others.

You will need to figure out what race you belong to. There are only 3 races to begin with, so based on your composition choose what you identify yourself with the most.

2) Im applying on the basis of marriage. And the question about Trips outside USA in the past 5 yrs. Should I just calculate it as 3 yrs ???

Yes.

3) Affiliations. I belong to a few Medical associations. Should I mention them with Affiliations.

Yes. You are not a AAA member and don't shop at Costco/Price Club?

4) I got a ticket for illegal U Turn, went to court and paid the fine for it. Now on the question about

Have you ever committed a crime or offense for which you were not arrested ? Y or N

Have you ever been arrested,cited or detained by law? Y or N

1) NO, unless you want to confess crimes you got away with.

2) YES, you have been cited. Since it was under $500, you only need to mention it, but no documentation is needed. Still a good idea to bring it with you to the interview.

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.
