  1. Would you recommend to apply for citizenship right now, while some offices and Application Support Centers are closed, or should I wait a little longer? I am afraid that if I apply right now then there is a great chance that my application will get lost and it will take ages to get through this process. I will apply online. And if you suggest to wait, then what would be a good time to apply? When ASCs open? I also don't wait for too long since USCIS promised to increase N400 fees significantly. Btw, have anyone applied during pandemic times? What is your experience? Thank you everybody.

  3. Hello everyone! I am starting my Naturalization application and I know we need to attached our tax return for the past 3 years. Can I attached copies of H&R Block or do the need to be official transcripts from the IRS obtained at the IRS? Thanks!

  5. Hello, I am working on filing for N-400 and completed online filing form(Have not signed and submitted yet). when I download the "draft case snapshot" where I see the pdf format of the N400, i noticed it automatically checks that my current spouse is us citizen in part 10 of the form. I am currently not married(divorced). Tried doing it a few times but every time I down the "draft case snapshot" it automatically checked below (part 10) Is your current spouse a U.S. citizen? "Yes" When did your current spouse become a U.S. citizen? "At Birth" Has anyone else noticed a similar issue? Is this going to be an issue? any suggestions? I feel this is a glitch as everything looks normal in efile form.
  6. My earliest accepted filing date is 7/11/2020, I wanted to go ahead and get this thread started if possible! I'm hoping that our wave will not be as impacted by COVID since USCIS is resuming operations June 4th.
  7. Has anyone else gotten this message? Just curious as to what may come next.
  8. I recently graduated from college and started working. I moved out of my parents' house, and as soon as I had some money saved up, I submitted my application for naturalization. I have been in this country for 8 years now, and every day has been a blessing. I passed my interview in February, but a month later I got my denial notice. The reason is as follows: In order to qualify for naturalization under INA 316, you must reside in a State or USCIS Service District having jurisdiction over your application for at least 3 months before you may file Form N-400. You resided only one month and 30 days at your address in Arlington, VA at the time you filed your application for naturalization. Since you did not reside in the jurisdiction of the Washington, DC Field Office for at least 3 months prior to filing your application, you are, unfortunately, ineligible for naturalization at this time. Therefore, USCIS denies your application for naturalization. See INA 316(a)(1). Of course it is my fault for not seeing the 90-day requirement when submitting my application, but this feels like a really petty reason to deny someone their citizenship. I love this country with all my soul, and I think my love for it should not be defined by whether I have been living 90 days in the same place at the time of my application or not. It's heartbreaking to say the least. What do I do next? Do I reapply? Do I appeal their decision? I would much appreciate your advice. Thanks, CCJango
  9. Hi, I am on work visa working in Us for last 5 year. spouse recently filed for N400. should we wait for her to become citizen to file for my GC or should we file based on current GC. read that date for F2A are current. apart from its stopped for covid . not sure what category we need to file and should we wait for citizenship or just file right now. Thank you for help.
  10. Hi all, Just wondering if USCIS stopped processing petitions due to corona virus situation. Should I file n400 now or wait till may to apply? My papers are ready to be sent 😬 thanks.
  11. I submitted my N-400 today just to figure out that I have mistakenly put my last name as first name and my first name as last name on the form on Part 2 Item No. 1 - Current Legal Name. However, my application has an attached birth certificate and copy of my green card which states the correct order of my name. I already submitted an e-request for a typographical error to be able to correct it right away. Will that cause a problem? Can I ammend it on my interview day if in case they were not able to correct it?
  12. I have had two traffic tickets (that have been taken care of) by police in my lifetime? Should traffic violations apply to this question?For both the violatons court fees were less than $400. Question 23 on N400: "Have you ever been arrested, cited, or detained by any law enforcement officer (including any immigration offical or any other official of the US armed forces) for any reason?
  13. I am asking this for a friend who doesn't have access to VJ. He entered the country when he was between 18 and 26 (Diversity Visa), but did not sign up for Selective Service. He also moved 2 times without reporting it to USCIS because he did not know that it was required. On his N400 application however, he did write down his previous addresses and answered No for Selective Service. He got his interview letter, it will be 2 weeks from now. On the letter they asked him to bring with him a proof of SS registry. He told me that he did not know much English when he came in, and after finding a job, he went to language school for 2 years. He wants to bring the certificate of his English classes as a proof that he wasn't aware because he did not understand English, and that he was learning while working. What are the possible scenarios here? Thank you
  14. Hello, On 2013, when I was 24, I was on F1 visa, I was accidentally registered for Selective Service when I applied for my drivers license. On 2015 I got my Green Card and now I applying for my citizenship at age 31. I am having confusion how to answer the question 44 A on N400, that says: Are you male who lived in US between 18th and 26th Birthday? (this does not include time as non-immigrant). The answer should be NO given I was beyond 26 when I got my green card but I am concerned if I get trouble if they find out that I registered for Selective Service when I should not have as a non-immigrant. Am I worrying for nothing? My wife and daugter are US citizens and I dont have any criminal history or anything.
  15. Hello All, I am filing for my citizenship. Unfortunately I did not register selective service. I did some online research and found out that I can give it a shot and try to prove my good moral character background with few letters. I am planning to get letters from 3 of my mangers and a director I worked for at work (I work for a world famous company). Couple of letters from Soccer clubs I played for (president and coach). Couple of letters from my church. In total am planning 7 letters at least. Off course along with my status information letter. I am 29 now. and I did do a green card renewal at the age of 25. And I missed the selective service registration then as well. It was not intentional, it was a genuine human error I missed it (My mom calls it irresponsibility but I am responsible (character) in many other ways). Prior to that all my green card renewal process were carried out by parents and I was a minor and I didnt have a clue about this neither did they. I did all my education in India and hence again I didnt know about this requirement in school. What are my chances? I am going through an attorney and they seem to be pretty solid. They said outright this is a 50 50 case. Where it could go either way. I am trying to see if there are other people like my case in here. If so what was your experience? ANy advice you guys you would offer for me? Thanks in advance. Appreciate it.
  16. Hi all hope everyone is safe and well during this difficult times. I have a pending case for n400 . I did my biometric March 2nd and waiting to hear from them. I have a question regarding what the background check produce and if I have a misdemeanor from a civil tick I got for a building I own that wasn't kept and ended up in court to pay $400 and a misdmeanor for owning an unsafe building. Can any one tell me if this will effect my chances to become a citizen or what should I do if do show up?
  17. I have been going through n400 time line and the updates for most who filed in Atlanta seem like its either the users don't frequent this forum or have not received any updates yet..which is not very encouraging because most go back a year+ So are there any ATL filers that are still waiting in line for interviews? had their interviews? oath ceremony? etc? please share your experience Thanks a lot
  18. Getting ready to file N400 form next month and I started going over some questions. 1. Question 19 in part 12 asks if I ever received weapons training. A few years ago I went to a indoor gun range for the first time and was shown how to use one. Does that count towards a yes for that question? 2. Question 23 asks about being cited. 2 years ago I got a parking ticket because the parking meter timed out. It was under 30 dollar's. I was going to put no for that question, is this correct? other than the parking ticket I have no other traffic tickets or moving violations. I appreciate the help!
  19. Last February 2020 I submitted my and my kids fee waiver and our n400 applications along with all the requirements needed the only thing I could think of why they rejected our applications is because I didn’t get to send my Federal tax return because I haven’t filed it yet during that time so I then sent the copy of my W2 . My 2 children were both in medicaid and we move out of state and I was unemployed During that time I have all the kids info and most of the stuff they needed to prove that my kids are on Medicaid. I send them a copy of how my other income sources which Is my alimony , all copies of our greencard,divorce decree copies to prove them how much I’am getting for alimony, Bank account statements to prove how much money I have there, amount I spend to move out of state and all my current bills statement of course N400 application forms and fee waivers form. My questions are : 1. What are the rest of requirement should I send them now since i have a current job? Example Pay stubs? 2. Do I just re submit the application as is without re printing it? It has some printed numbers on the bottom part in each papers (photo attached) and a green paper with a note stating that if we wanted to re-submit we had to Just place the green note on top of the packet. And then just for me to add a note saying that I have a current job now and just provide them with my pay stubs? 3. I know I need to send my federal income tax this time but was it just for last year or the previous year too? Like 2018 and 2019? 4. Should I sent the same packet or new packet to the same address where I sent it first ? i used Fedex last time I was wondering if I could use USPS this time? But if I do it has to go to a different address 5. What do I do to the FedEx envelope they attached literally the same envelope I sent but it was just cut out the address and they place it inside the ziplock bag ? 6. Since I’am applying for a fee waiver does it means I don’t have to pay anything else ? Or do I have to pay something else just curious it could maybe one of the reason I was rejected too. 7. My eldest child is currently 17 will turn 18 on oct. of this year You think there’ s gonna be a problem later on that I should make her, her own n400 application because she will be consider adult this year? Or is because she’s still currently 17 it is not gonna be a problem later on? Thank you in advance if this is not the right Forum please just move it for me . Thank you again .
  20. I'm going to be applying for my citizenship online next month, I was wondering how much covid-19 would affect my case, like if USCIS won't send me a receipt until the whole thing is gone. or if bio appointments won't be scheduled, ...etc Should I apply anyways or should I wait for the virus to be gone? I'm a little confused.
  21. Hi, I am a US Citizen living abroad as a missionary. My wife is applying for citizenship under 319(b) of the INA. My questions are: 1) After research, we've decided we'd be best served to be interviewed and naturalized at the Fairfax, VA USCIS office. We've indicated this both on our cover letter as well as on the application itself. On my N-400 application, my mailing address is a Tennessee address (where my parents live). Will this present problems when my application is reviewed? Should I instead use an address of a friend in Virginia as my mailing address? 2) Because we want to be interviewed in VA, I am assuming I need to initially send our packet to the Lewisville ,TX location. Is this the correct place to file? I read somewhere that, in times past, there was one specific location (I think it was Phoenix) where all 319(b) cases were to be filed. Can someone confirm where we are to file our N-400 packet when filing under 319(b)? 3) Has anyone recently gone through this process? We're intending to file our application the first week of March. My wife is a month pregnant, so we're hoping that the interview will not be scheduled in the last trimester (where would mean about 5-6 months from the time of filing). Ideally, the interview would come closer to 9 months after the time of filing (a few weeks after the baby is here). Can anyone advise how long your process was with filing under 319(b)?
  22. Hi, I finished filling out the N400 form, double checked it. Waited a day then checked it again before clicking finish. When I got the PDF certain parts such as contact information and previous residences were all filled with N/A which is completely wrong as I filled out those boxes. Is there anyway to fix this without having to pay the $200 again? I can only click download now. Thank you
  23. I just became a us citizen through naturalization. I know that I can register to vote and uscis officers told us about that during the oath ceremony. Do I have to register to vote? Is it mandatory for all new us citizens to register to vote and vote after that? I am not really into politics, don’t get involved and don’t really know much. At this point I do not want to register to vote and vote in any kind of elections. I am wondering if me not registering to vote and not voting going to create any problems? Like the government and uscis going to think that I am not a good citizen and possibly question my newly acquired citizenship or denaturalize me? Anyone on this forum naturalized and did not register to vote? Any personal experience? Thank you
  24. Hi!! This may be a stretch but I wanted to get all the West Palm Beach FL members who are filing or have filed, and are still waiting, to join this forum. It's a great way to keep updated on the West Palm Beach office and how fast they are processing our applications. WELCOME 😁🤗
  25. The N400 interview letter says to bring the naturalization or birth certificate of my US citizen (USC) spouse. My USC spouse does not have a naturalization certificate... only a US passport. Is the passport sufficient to prove US citizenship? I find it odd that the N400 interview doesn't mention the passport as a form of proof. It has served as proof thus far. My spouse was born outside the US to a US citizen parent (born and raised who passed all the legal requirements) and by law my spouse was a US citizen from birth. Before my spouse turned 18, they went with their US citizen parent to the US consulate and got a passport. They never had a naturalization certificate and I guess since they were a US citizen since birth that a naturalization certificate wouldn't make sense. They can't be naturalized if they were always a US citizen. They also don't have a US birth certificate since they weren't born in the US. Is the US passport sufficient to prove my spouse's US citizenship at the N400 interview?
