Thread: Become a Citizen or Not?

  1. #1
    This is for my friend who has an interview comiing up next month for citizenship. He is a permanent resident since 1987. He is married for the last 14 years and has two US born children, his wife is also a permanent resident. Back in 1990 when he was about 20 years old he was living in California and would let his friend use his car every day, he would get drop off to work then his friend would use the work to go to his job. One afternoon a police officer pulled them over and saw a gun in the back of the car just lying on the car seat, they both were taken in and the friend told the officer that the gun was his and it was for hunting. It was broken and was going to be taken in to get fixed. Without any argument the officer blamed the driver because it was his car, so he never had any record and had to stay in jail for 2 weeks and was then released. Question is he has no record of this incident and has been living in Chicago as of 1992 and never left. He is worried if he can still get his citizenship. He is ready to take the test and has never gotten into any trouble. What to do?

    why don't your friend get his own policerecord
    then he can see if there is anything in it.

    If there is a record!! the form N400 ask him if you ever been arrestet
    so he got to say yes and explain it to the immigration officer

    Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

    Declare the incident on the N-400 form (it is clear in that it asks if there has been any arrest) and then answer only questions asked, if asked. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by OPEL:
