I'm confused about this "citizen certificate" you are refering to but, if the form asks for an A number, then provide it. If it doesn't, then don't.

If you are a naturalized citizen you should not be filling out the AOS paper work. The beneficiary is meant to be filling out the AOS paperwork it is about the Beneficiary NOT the US citizen.

IF it is information on applying for citizenship/naturalization that you are looking for, the following information should help.

The naturalization form is the N-400 form. It's not an Adjustment of status (AOS)

It's a separate set of forms completely to apply for citizenship/naturalization.

Go to the guide section in this website and download the complete guide for applying for citizenship. If you can, print out all the pages as well as the N-400 application forms so you can read them over and over again.

Read the guide thoroughly and prepare all the documents you will need to fill in the N-400 forms.

When you are ready to fill in your N-400 forms do it online and print it out page by page.

Once you put your A# on the first page of the form it will automatically put your number on all the following pages.

On edit - However, if you are already a citizen then your post is quite confusing and we don't really know what information you are looking for. What is your status? I

Me ( US citizen)and my wife ( the one applying for AOS) are filling out the forms and the certificate you obtain it when you become a citizen. The certificate still have my alien number but I though that when you become a citizen your A# is no longer valid.... If so do I stool have to put it down on the application?

I am not applying for a citenship, I got marriage and I'm doing for my wife.. AOS forms ask me if I am a citizen but there a couple of question where it's asking for my A# . Because I am a citizen I don't know if I should leave it blank or should I still need to need to write it down.

When you become a citizen, You obtain a citenship certificate.

Again. The ONLY form the USC fills out is the affidavit of support. If that form asks for your Alien Number then you put yours on it other wise.

Your wife the immigrant is supposed to be filling out the AOS forms. They want HER alien number and HER information not yours.

Actually the I-485 asks for the spouses info and A number...

You are a naturalised citizen. The A number is yours for life so yes when dealing with immigration you put it in (they then link your file to your wifes) but for other things (not immigration related) you're right your A number doesn't matter anymore.

On the I-485, page 2, Part 3B it asks for the spouses info (your info) and it asks for your A number (if any) so yes this is where you put your A number.

OK In understand your problem better now.

Yes there is a question on Page 5 pertaining to YOUR citizenship.

I understand you arfe the one filling in the forms for your wife and in this case YOU are the spouse.

You must fill in section C & D but because you are a citizen now you don't need to fill in section E which asks for your A#.

In section D 1. you will check the box which says "Other" then below that you will fill in 2. date your spouse became a citizen (That's YOU) and 3. place you became a citizen. You will need to refer to the N-400 guide for full instructions.

OK another question for you - I understand you are doing more paperwork for your wife.

Are you applying for citizenship for your wife or a 2 year conditional Green Card or applying for an unconditional Green Card??

I may have missed something but this is still unclear to me.

This does not apply. He is filing I-485 for his wife as explained in post #6

Post #6 he explains it's AOS. He is a naturalised USC which is why he talk about his citizenship certificate having his A number.

Thanks everyone!! I am just going to put my A# regardless , I am sure they will just link my number and find out I am a citizen. I guess it doesn't hurt to do it anyways. Thanks!
