Naturalization questions

Hello everyone!!! This question is for my aunt... So she married a US citizen approximately 12 years ago, she came to the US 11 years ago and she is still a permanent resident (and has been all this time), she will have to renew her green card next year and I suggested it would be easier for her to file for citizenship. She remained married to her husband until last year January when he passed away.

My question is: Since she has been a permanent resident for 9 years, as I understand it, she will not be applying on the basis of marriage to a US citizen, but on the basis that she has been a lawful permanent resident for over 5 years, correct? So does she still have to send marriage certificates, death certificates and all the evidence related to her deceased husband??

And another question, she has a 23 year old son who came with her with a green card too (from previous marriage) and he doesn't live with her, there is no court order or anything that states that my aunt has to support him economically, he currently has no job and my aunt sends him a little bit of money but doesn't support him fully. My common sense tells me that she is under no obligation to support him now that he is 23, but would he count as a dependent child?? And her not fully supporting him count as lack of good moral character???

Thank you so much!!!!

Carolina

Yes, marriage certificates, death certificates, divorce decrees, if any, are needed for N-400, even if it is based on 5 year residency. It is not that hard to get hold of these certificates.

She is not legally obligated to support her son.

Thank you to both! I think you have to submit certificates even for the 5 year requirement, but no evidence of being married to a US citizen... Weird...
