Make a long story short.I am getting ready to apply for my citizenship through marriage to a US Citizen.I removed my condition through abuse.I want to bring my son who was born during my marriage to the US citizen.Her mum was an ex girlfriend who I met a gain during an occasion and my careless way get her pregnant. Will there be any problem if I added his name once,while applying for my citizenship,or I should wait and get my citizenship before starting his process?

You have to list your children on N-400, not doing that will be extremely dumb, especially if you later want him to come over.

Okay.But with the fact that he was born while I was still married to the US citizen,will that bring any complication?

Well if there is anything that ask about your son then you should list him but at any case you need to get your citizenship first to bring him to begin with, what you should be concerned about is if the other parent of your son will let your son come because you are going to need her permission.

No it wont. The Application for Naturalization (Form N-400) requires you to list all your biological children and under the law, any child that you have while you are married is also the us citizen who you are married to child also, even if she is not the biological mother as long as you are not married to the son mother cause that will be bigamy, and polygamy. I know things just happen in life but try not to let those happen again.

1- If you are asking just out of curiosity, then the answer is that it shouldn't cause any problems, but you may be asked questions about the child and the relationship.

2- The question is irrelevant, since you absolutely have to list the child. Listing the child does not mean that he is part of your application since each N400 application is only for one person. He will have his own immigration procedure to follow to come here (whether you sponsor him or if he is already a USC because of his other parent). Failing to list him on the application would be considered lying on an immigration form which can cause your application to be denied, your green card to be revoked, or even (if they catch this in the future) for your citizenship to be revoked.
