Hi everybody.

I completed filling up my N-400 form and getting ready to mail it. I just wanna know if I'm forgetting something.

I'm filing based on holding a green card for 7 years ( I'm also still married to the same us citizen spouse ).

So here is what I'm sending :

A completed form N-400.

A copy of green card front and back.

2 passport photos.

A check for $680.

So is that all ? I've read I don't have to send any documents as proof of my marriage to an us citizen since it's been over 3 years, Am I correct ?

Any help would be much appreciated :)

"DHS also is planning to "promote" the new naturalization process by giving a 50 percent discount on the first 10,000 applicants who come forward, with the exception of those who have income levels above 200 percent of the poverty level"

yes, that's all what you need if you are applying based on 5 years of being a PR. Plus, a proof of selective service registration if you were required to register [ if you are a male]

I would hold off for a few days. There is some sort of 50% discount being worked on for the first 10,000 Lpr's naturalizing. Listen to the news from tomorrow.

Oh really I haven't heard anything about that. Thx I'll keep an eye on it. Thx

Fox News was not very accurate about that piece of information. Please refer to the official USCIS website ( below, I copied some of that webpage for your convenience) http://www.uscis.gov/immigrationaction

It is only logical to apply as soon as possible before the USCIS gets swamped with huge volumes of new immigration petitions which could impose significant delay on all sorts of immigration implications. Good luck

Promote the naturalization process Who
  • Lawful permanent residents eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship
What
  • Promote citizenship education and public awareness for lawful permanent residents.
  • Allow naturalization applicants to use credit cards to pay the application fee.
  • Assess potential for partial fee waivers in the next biennial fee study.
Notes: Go to the U.S. Citizenship page to learn about the naturalization process and visit the Citizenship Resource Center to find naturalization test preparation resources. You can also visit the N-400, Application for Naturalization, page. When
  • During 2015
How

Q6: Will the processing of other applications and petitions (such as family-based petitions and green card applications) be delayed?

A6: USCIS is working hard to build capacity and increase staffing to begin accepting requests and applications for the initiatives. We will monitor resources and capacity very closely, and we will keep the public and all of our stakeholders informed as this process develops over the course of the coming months.

I wrote my selective services registration number on the form, do I still have to send proof of it?

most likely they will ask you for a proof during the interview so it's better to include it with the application. You can obtain a proof of registration directly from selective service website. www.sss.gov

Thank you I'll do that... One more question is it OK if I send a personal check for the fee?

It's good that you're asking questions to double check, but the safest thing to do is to read the instructions so that we don't accidentally misguide you.

http://www.uscis.gov/n-400

Filing Fee

$595 (Add $85 biometric fee for a total of $680, where applicable. See exceptions below.) You must make your check payable to Department of Homeland Security. Fees are accepted in the form of money order, personal check or cashier's check only. USCIS will reject your Form N-400 if you submit the incorrect fee. In such a case, USCIS will return any filing fee you submitted with your Form N-400.

Exceptions in which the applicant is not required to pay the entire $680:

Applicants 75 years of age or older are not charged a biometric fee, the total fee is $595.

No fee is required for military applicants filing under Section 328 and 329 of the INA
