Quick question on n400 application

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am getting my application ready and my documents are almost complete and application is already filled out. Should I use paper clip ir should I staple the documents(IRS,evidences,etc.)? My application is handwritten only. Is that ok? I am thinking of making a cover letter but again I will only write it by hand.

Use Paper clip. USCIS still accept hand-written applications. Use a black pen when you fill out the form by hand.

I just received a notice of rejection because I forgot to check my eligibility requirement on Part 1. Should I make new application on n400 or just submit the original package that I sent? Thank you

Double check it again. Fix all errors. Re-Sign your application with new day. Destroy old check and sign a new one (they did not cash it, just in case). Use paper clipped. Resubmit your application and all documentation you had sent.

Good luck.

My application was on hold for further review, due to this reason, it took little longer. If the application is approved right away, then you can expect oath within 2 weeks. Tampa office is pretty fast to schedule the oath.
