Silly question about answering N/A or NONE

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know this may be a silly question, but I get into my own head sometimes and I want to be sure. When answering N/A or NONE for a question, do I have to put N/A or NONE for all of the fields? For example, if no one prepared the form for me (Part 12), do I just put N?A for the "Preparer's Printed Name" line or for all of the lines (signature, date, address, etc.)? Thanks in advance!

If you want you can actually leave the fields blank. The point of writing something like NONE or N/A is that nobody else is able to write something in there that you don't want there to be written in those field. It's just to CYA basically.

I personally N/A all fields (or at least the ones on the top line) that do not apply or have to be left blank.

Actually you cant just leave all fields blank. You are supposed to answer everything even if it is with an N/A or none in the space provided. Most of the instructions even state to answer ALL questions.

- N/A is put when the question is not applicable to you.

- None is put when you do not have what they are asking of you.

True, but if they for instance ask you for names of any children and you don't have any children then names are not applicable. I agree that in this example NONE would be a better answer but I don't think an IO will be bothered when answering such a question with N/A.

Well this might be of some concern for me as I left all such fields blank on my N-400 application if they didn't apply to me. :unsure:

0 children so left that section blank

Have been retired for over 7 years so I left all fields blank about working the last 5 years

There were probably other such questions that didn't pertain to me so I left those blank too.

Oh well they have the package now so all I can do is wait and see what happens.

After 10+ years of marriage to my husband and permanent residency I'm (hopefully) not anticipating problems. :whistle:
