And I'm back! Question about mental hospital question

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Alright, so after 5+ years here we are going to file for DH's Naturalization. Part of why I am doing is that he is mentally unwell. I've thought about taking him to the hospital in the past but he insisted that I don't. Imagine how I felt when I came across the question regarding if the immigrant has been confined or spent time in a mental institution. Ouch. Has anyone experienced this and gotten through the process? At the end of the day my DH's life is more important than a US passport but I think that's pretty messed up. Anyone else in my position? Thanks.

Hmm

 

I assumed he had to be mentally competent to swear the oath?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Part 12, Question 5: Have you EVER been declared legally incompetent or been confined to a mental institution?

EDIT: Just to clarify, he has bad depression and anxiety. He is not incompetent. Most mentally ill people are not incompetent.

They are also clear that a positive response to many of those questions does not automatically disqualify you. It just means they have more stuff to check.

Thanks, this is reassuring but also a bit disheartening since mental illness is more than stigmatized enough. Hope I can keep him out of the hospital until this is done.
