How many parking and moving traffic violations are enough to get N 400 denied?

Filed: Timeline

I am planning to apply for N 400. So far I have 5 parking tickets (all under $500), 5 speeding tickets (all under $500), 1 ez pass violation, and 3 tickets for red light photo enforcement (all under $500). 1 red light enforcement was for speed, one was for turning and one for not stopping for red light. One speeding ticket was a "petty misdemeanor" in MN even though it is a traffic violation. I am applying on N 400 based on 5 year rule. Can these lead to denial of N 400? Should I be worried. If I do get denied after how long can I reapply?

Am I supposed to mention speeding tickets on N 400 Citizenship Application? What about parking tickets?

Thanks

Just make sure you don't hide anything. That doesn't mean you need to volunteer unnecessary information, but just do what they say. And I agree with Teddy, please slow down. We're all someone's child and no one wants to have to bury their kid.

One of the questions on the N400 asks if you have ever been cited by a police officer. You were cited several times so you need to answer yes and list those instances.

The instructions say that you don't have to present proof if the fine was less than $500 and not DWI/DUI related, but many interviewers have refused to approve an application until payment receipts and court dispositions were presented. You'll be better off preparing all these documents before your interview, but you don't need to send them in with the application.
