N-400 Interview Scheduled & Two Misdemeanors

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good evening,


First and foremost, I would really appreciate any feedback that would help my situation. 

My husband and I separated about a year ago - we got married in late 2010 - and I never applied for naturalization until, well about a year ago. (We are still married).

The day my husband and I separated, I was arrested for a DV misdemeanor, charges were dropped the very next day. It's been a year since the arrest and I have not had any updates on my case.

A month after, I was arrested again for a different charge, and later in 2018 convicted of a misdemeanor for Reckless Driving, no probation.

I recently received a letter from USCIS, I have an upcoming interview in a few weeks. 

Seasoned members, knowledgeable readers. What's your input for my case? 

Thank you for your time,

The big problem now is regarding the second misdemeanor which you were convicted. USCIS generally requires a 5 year probationary period after a conviction to demonstrate the good moral character requirement. Since your conviction is still fresh and within this statue of limitation there’s a great chance your N 400 will be denied for not meeting this requirement. I’ll let others chime in as well.
