Question about adult stepchild

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I married my current spouse in 2014. He had a child out of wedlock 20 years ago, who lives in Germany with her mother. When I filled out my N-400 I had to provide his daughter's name and details on the application because it says to count all children including stepchildren. When I have my interview next month, will they ask me for her details such as birth certificate, proof of child support payments and so on? I am not blood-related to that young lady, in fact I have not even met her since she lives on another continent. Plus she is an adult, so my spouse is not legally obligated to support her at this time (even though he sends her money out of his own free will etc.). My only connection with her is that I married her father two years ago. Anything I need to be aware of for my interview???

I was not asked about my 2 stepsons whatsoever (who I had dutifully listed on my application as you have), I wouldn't worry about it. She won't affect your Naturalization decision.
