Disability and Citizenship

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering something...

My father-in-law recently sent off his application along with my mother-in-law's.... he wanted to beat the fee increase...

he sent in a disability application for my mother-in-law because she had a stroke a few months back and can't speak or eat or write etc....

does she just automatically get citizenship or does it depend on if my father-in-law gets citizenship?? or does she need to go to an interview etc....???

just for clarification they have been permanent residents for years and years...

I am not sure how they might handle an application from an alien that is so severely incapacitated, but I was quite pleasantly surprised to find out that USCIS will come to your home to conduct an interview and perform testing for Naturalisation. :D

my father-in-law had to fill out a special form for my mother-in-law....

I think this is the form...

http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/N-648.pdf

and this is what it says....

Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions

Purpose of Form :

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations require that applicants seeking an exception from the English and U.S. history and government (civics) requirements for naturalization based on physical or developmental disability or mental impairment submit this certification form, completed by a licensed medical doctor or a licensed clinical psychologist, along with a completed application for naturalization (Form N-400). This certification form will be used by USCIS to determine whether applicants for naturalization are entitled to an exception to the requirements.
