N-400 questions

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, i have some questions regarding N-400 form.

Part 10 about Your marital History :

# 8 : How many times has your current spouse ( my husband ) been married ( including annulled marriages ... ) >>>> he had been divorced 2x so my answer should be 3 ( including married with me )

#8 F : My Current spouse's Date of Marriage with Prior Spouse & Marriage Ended with Prior Spouse(s) >>> Because this had been 2x, so i need to explain it on the separate letter?

 

Part 12 : 7A : have you ever not filed a Federal, State, or local tax return since you became a lawful permanent resident? >>> No ( i filed with my husband )

Part 12 : 7B : If you answered Yes, did you consider yourself to be a non U.S Resident? >>> Should i leave it blank or answer No?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

7A. correct. No.

7B. your answer was no in 7A. so just leave blank or N/A.

In the N400 form, you might fill as much as you could. An adjudication officer will probably verify all the information with you. 

For example, IO might asks you about the name you have been used and you might ask her/his about this. He/she will correct it with the red pen.

I suggest you should have to fill your maiden name in that part. 

I hope this will help you be more confident in filing N400.

Oh well. I was interviewing with the very nice African American female officer. She escorted me to her office (while I observed other officers were just letting the applications follow them without saying a word). 

She went over with my application first (after placed me under oath, and asked me fore identity forms + interview letter)

(1) Asked my general information such as: name, birthday, current address...

(2) Asked where I worked, and lived since I came to US.

(3) Asked if I was out of US. (I said no during the past 5 years because I love US that much, she was so surprised and she opened my passport in order to verify and even asked: Not even to Canada or Mexico ? - I smiled and said No. )

(4) She went to those Yes/No questions.

(5) She asked me to review the N400 form with a lot of red pen revision. 

 

Then she went to the Civic test, asked me these 6 questions:

(1) Who wrote the Declaration of Independence ?

(2) Name 1 state that borders Mexico ?

(3) Name 3 original states ?

(4) What are two major political parties in US ?

(5) Who is Commander in chief of Military ?

(6) What is the party of our President right now ?

 

For the writing test, she asked me to read out loud: Who elects the Congress ?

She gave me an answer and asked me to write on the paper: The People elects the Congress. 

She repeated the answer twice. 

 

She asked me verify the information includes my name, my address.. which will be in the Naturalization Certificate, and sign it.

She also asked me to sign form N400.

After that, she congratulated me and recommended me for an approval. 

 

I have to move next week so I asked her if I could have any options. She went out and asked her supervisor and gave me the option of 

(1) Process the application here and take Oath at my new local USCIS. 

(2) Come back for the Oath Day. 

I said I would not want to be take Oath at my new address since it would be a huge delay so I politely asked her to process my Oath in SF. 

 

Hope this helps. LOL
