Timeline

My wife had her interview in early march. We had an argument in late April and she stabbed me in my leg with a kitchen knife. She was arrested and she has her first trial in July. I got her help and a lawyer and even though the initial charges are Domestic Violence & Assault with a deadly weapon, we are getting information that it might be reduced to a misdemeanor. 

She still has not received any information regarding her oath ceremony being scheduled.

 

My questions is: Is she still able to continue her citizenship path and take the oath or will her naturalization case be denied? I read on USCIS website that she will have to declare any criminal charges or arrests ..etc at the oath ceremony.

 

I appreciate any information. Thank you in advance.

She will need to declare the arrest on the N-445 (the form given for the oath ceremony). Whether they determine she is eligible for naturalization that day or they need to review the case again is a decision they would make.

If she is put on probation, I believe they cannot be approved for naturalization until that expires.

 

But yes - this is not DIY. Get professional assistance.

2020 has been a long year, hasn't it?

Hahahahaha, Agree. Long Interesting year, I am just hoping things will get back on track as afar as the ASC offices. And that USCIS gets the support they need so they would continue processing and completing applications. I heard fees will be going up soon praying everyone submits promptly, since these fees can kick start at any time.
