Evidence for naturalization! (after 3y residency)

Hi guys,

it is that time again after ROC. This is the last step of my journey and I have some questions.

I am filling next week as a 3 year spouse and I am perplexed when it comes to evidence. For ROC I filled a 5lbs stack of evidence. I see now the people in this section of the forum say I don't need to send all the evidence from ROC + new ones but to have them in my interview.

1. Is this true? Won't I get an RFE for this?

2. I am freaking out because this year I did not take so many photographs with my husband, can I omit the photos?

3. My package is bigger than ROC this time. Gives me a headache on how do I send it? It an envelope ok or a small package?

Thanks,

You do not need all that extra evidence this time. Follow exactly what is listed on the n400 instructions. Only your two passport style photos for photos. We sent for tax transcript for 3 years and included that instead of entire tax form. We included two months of bank statements showing joint accounts, house mortgage etc. I clipped everything together with a clamp clip and mailed it at the post office two business day delivery. Only about 8 dollars! Keep a complete copy! I am sheduled for biometrics now. Hopefully more will chime in that are further along.

Did you also wrote N/A or None to all the parts that are not applicable? Or left it blank?

Again best thing is to carefully read N400 instructions and List of required documents, and submit what best applies to your situation. If you are applying as a 3-year marriage (not 5 year resident) you must supply some evidence that you are a couple, so the options listed include joint tax returns, joint home ownership, joint bank account, etc.

Ok, I just finished the whole package.. I think I am sending too much.. Is there a change to see my package with the extra evidence, cringe and deny me? I'm being paranoid now :(

the extra stuff I send are, 401k that show our names, car insurance, leases and some bills

Personal preference - but I am evaluating an application which should be just 5-pages and is instead 1-lb of documents that I would have to wade through; chances are that it can cause delays or even return the application for not providing relevant documentation.

Hi there!

Naturalization is the easiest to file compared to everything else we have done so far! You only need to include these things in the packet (taken right from the instructions):

1. Photographs. Provide two identical color photographs of yourself taken recently. The photos must have a white to off-white background, be printed on thin paper with a glossy finish, and be unmounted and unretouched. Passportstyle photos must be 2” x 2”. The photos must be in color with full face, frontal view on a white to off-white background. Head height should measure 1” to 1 3/8” from top of hair to bottom of chin, and eye height is between 1 1/8” to 1 3/8” from bottom of photo. Your head must be bare, unless contrary to your religious beliefs. Using a pencil or felt pen, lightly print your name and A-Number (if any) on the back of the photo.

2. Photocopy of Permanent Resident Card. Provide a photocopy of the front and back of your Form I-551 (Permanent Resident Card). USCIS must be able to read the information on the photocopy. If you have lost your Form I-551, attach a photocopy of any other entry document or a photocopy of a receipt showing that you have filed Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.

3. Photocopy of your Current Legal Marital Status Document. Provide a photocopy of your current marriage certificate, divorce, annulment decree, or death certificate of former spouse

The checklist also states to submit taxes, birth certificates of children etc which is NOT on the n-400 instruction form (confusing!) if you are filing under the 3 year rule.

Everything else, like photos and extra evidence, you BRING to your interview. It should be a nice small envelope, not a giant thick one like for K1 and ROC. Good luck!
