Parking violation a week from oath ceremony

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My notice of naturalization oath ceremony has about 8 questions on the back of the paper

my question is mostly about question number 4 which asks:

4. Since your interview, have you been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, including traffic violations?

Well im a little worried about what i should answer since 3 days after my interview i got a $15 parking violation ticket and my oath cerimony is next monday.

And should i take the paper with everything answered or are we supposed to answer it there?

It's not a big deal ... really! The I.O. at my interview waved off any mention of parking and speeding tickets. He was an ex-cop and mentioned that for SOME of the time, they are just "revenue earners" for the cities involved, so unless you get them all the time (indicates you might be of questionable moral character), they ignore them.

You should tell them at the ceremony - take the paperwork with you. Best to pay it all before hand too, just to show you are a nice and responsible person. When we were all in our ceremony and before they started, an I.O. went round and asked EVERY INDIVIDUAL personally if they had been arrested, tickets etc since the interview. Several people said they had, showed the paperwork and none of them were denied citizenship.

We also were asked to complete the list of check boxes on the back of the notice BEFORE the I.O. got round to asking us the questions about arrests and it REALLY ticked her off if people hadn't so TAKE A BLACK PEN WITH YOU....
