Thread: N-400 Question

  1. #1
    I had three traffic tickets which have been dismissed by agreeing to attend Safety Course each time.

    Do I have to answer "Yes" to the question "Have you ever been arrested, cited or detained by any law enforcement officer
    (including USCIS or former INS and military officers) for any reason?"

    Also, do I have to answer "Yes" to the question "Have you ever committed a crime or offense for which you were not arrested?"

    I asked the same questions and did some research,on other immigration webpages and also called the INS number...
    the 1800 number said,U do not have to.

    But here is what I found out. I personally will cross "No" to the question "arressted,cited,detained"

    And when you go to the interview,the officer,will go through your application and u can tell him/her about the traffic tickets aka speeding etc...
    they'll go through your whole application,step by step and correct what needs to be corrected.

    The whole problem with the traffic ticket is aka cited "citation" its in the same line.with arrest and detained,which make no sense.

    Thats like asking, have u ever lied,cheated or killed someone - all in the same line and question lol

    The fact is you were arrested. So, you should check yes and list the 3 traffict tickets.
    I you do not check yes, then the officer will at the interview.

    A traffic stop is not considered an arrest. If one is arrested, they must be read their Miranda rights. A traffic ticket is only a citation. However, I would still disclose the tickets on the N-400. They won't cause a problem for naturalization purposes.

    Thank you all for the reply.

    I believe I will answer 'Yes' to Question 16 ("Have you ever been arrested, cited or or detained by any law enforcement officer (including USCIS or former INS and military officers) for any reason?"), and list my tickets.

    I suppose based on all your feedback, I should be answering 'No' to Question 15 = "Have you ever committed a crime or offense for which you were not arrested?".

    Yes, you have to answer yes. Are you a frakking moron?
