Here is the scoop. My naturalization application has been approved and am awaiting for my oath taking ceremony date. Unfortunately, I received a citation of possession of marijuana under an ounce along the drug paraphernalia in the same instance (but different offense). This is my first time getting a marijuana citation. I've read the USCIS rules, which say that there is an exception to the controlled substance charges if it is only single time offense of marijuana possession under 30gms. Here are my questions: If these are the only charges and there are no other charges (like to sell, or intent to distribute), should I plead guilty and pay all the fines and take the relevant paperwork to the oath ceremony? Should I fight the charges (can become expensive, which might be an issue)? I am more or less inclined to accept the conviction since it will fall under the exception category. Any help, suggestions is appreciated. Thanks much !!
There is a question in the N-400 online application (applying under 3 year rule, married to US citizen): "Have you EVER been arrested, cited, or detained by any law enforcement officer (including any immigration official or any official of the U.S. armed forces) for any reason?" I have two minor traffic citations: 1) lights off at night, 2) improper right turn (turned right not the closest lane from me). I also have two parking ticket (parking in the wrong place). All traffic and parking tickets have been paid and none of them involved alcohol, I did not had to appear in court. Should I answer yes to that question? Which tickets should mention? Traffic tickets and parking tickets or only traffic tickets? or none? My 36 month traffic record does not show any of them because it happened more than 3 years ago. I no longer live in that state so I would have to travel to request a 5 year driving record if needed. Thanks!
Hi Friends, I think I am in Truble, Just want to confrim from you all. what is Citation ?? Actually I never got arrested all I have since 2008 one ticket of Making a right turn from secong lane, but judge said if in 6 months I didn't get any other ticket and its not going to be on my record and I just paid fine and thats it. 2. One time Cop gave me a ticket on dropping passenger on bridge (pasenger was in hurry n he pulled the knobs of the door and I was standing at the red light, After red light like 20 feets away was train station), I paid the ticket and my taxi licence got renewed every year but on 4th year after the ticket when I went to renew my taxi licence they said that i have a ticket due that needs to pay, I went to the city office and even with infront of the judge they told me to pay 1600 $ (I believe Maximum fine) And later on they told me ok.. lets go with 1300 $. abd I paid the fine. So I didn't include all this in mycitizenship file ?? Is all this comes under Citation ?? Should I need to explain to IO whoever is going to interview me ?? Any help much appreciated. Thanks
