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

I'm having trouble with this question. Of course I have committed a crime: I smoked pot when i was a kid and I drank underage. I stole cigarettes a couple of times. So my question is, if I answer "Yes", is it going to have an adverse effect on my application? And if I answer "No", will that be suspicious, since almost everyone has committed a crime at some time? I can't ask a lawyer of course, because he can't tell me to lie :P

It won't be suspicious. There are plenty who haven't committed crimes.

I haven't as far as I know.

I wouldn't encourage you to lie, either, though.

You absolutely need to be honest. But if you are a honest and tell them that you were a druggy, they will deny your N-400 faster than a speeding bullet. I would presume you had to disclose your criminal history at an earlier stage of the immigration process already. So you lied back then, committed material misrepresentation? That, too, is a reason to kick your sorry *&% out of the United States.

So tell the truth, but keep the sh*t you did as a kid for yourself.

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.

He has no criminal history, he is asking about the impossible to answer truthfully N400 question.

Well unless you are a babe in arms.

Reason why the USCIS ask this question is if you ever were caught, you lied on your application, so they have reason to deport you.

I smoked pot when i was a kid and I drank underage. I stole cigarettes a couple of times

Yous is the culprit with that pot, your you a drug dealer, or was it older kids that persaded you to take a couple of puffs. Were you actually at the age of reason when this happened.

Man, when I was six at a wedding, adults thought it was a big joke to get me plastiered. Wow, did I get sick and developed an allegry to all alchoholic beverages and haven't had a drink since. In a way, they did me a favor. How did you steal cigarettes, and where. Not within the last 25 years from here, keep those locked uo in any store, vending machines are history.

Did you leave pipe bomb someplace that killed or injured over 200 people? Was anyone harmed because of your "crimes". May have hurt yourself more than anyone else. I don't think I would worry about it.

Oh, and when my mom wasn't looking, I stole a cookie from the cookie jar, hey I was hungry! So shoot me.

Were you arrested? Is there any police record that shows that you were arrested for smoking pot? If not, you are safe

But if you were arrested, then get a certified copy of the police records.
