Selective Servive regestration issue

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I know it's still early to think about filing n400, but I sent a status request to the selective service last week. Today, I received a call from them and they told me that I am already registered since 2009, since I came to the USA. The gentleman will send me my card. My question is this will this cause any problem when I apply for the citizenship? I never claimed to be a USC. But I think my school registered me or the DMV?

When I entered the states I was 25 and I gained my PRS when I was 28.

Any input is appreciated

Almost EVERY male living in the United States is supposed to register for selective service. Read here directly from the SSA website:

"WHO MUST REGISTER

Almost all male U.S. citizens, and male aliens living in the U.S., who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service. It's important to know that even though he is registered, a man will not automatically be inducted into the military. In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for mental, physical and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service or inducted into the Armed Forces.

A chart of who must register is also available.

NON-CITIZENS

Some non-citizens are required to register. Others are not. Noncitizens who are not required to register with Selective Service include men who are in the U.S. on student or visitor visas, and men who are part of a diplomatic or trade mission and their families. Almost all other male noncitizens are required to register, including illegal aliens, legal permanent residents, and refugees. The general rule is that if a male noncitizen takes up residency in the U.S. before his 26th birthday, he must register with Selective Service."

So since you're a permanent resident, you were required to be registered.

The OP is saying that he got registered when he was on an F-1 student visa which is a non-immigrant visa. Non-immigrant visa holders are not required to register.

The OP became a permanent resident at the age of 28 when he was out of the 18-26 window. So he did not have to register.

You should be fine. Contact the Selective Service Office and try to get information when and through which channel you got registered. Then try to get either a letter from that source or from Selective Services indicating that you have been registered accidentally.

As you pointed out, you were on a non-immigrant visa and you were not required to register.

thank you everybody I will try to check with the DMV why they passed my information to the selective service, since it was obvious that I am not a usc , and they gave me a DL based on my I20
