    to fguest,

    good residancy, i meant it's good to have records of doctor's visit, telephone bills, apartmental contract, credit card bills etc.,. they don't necesarily ask for these things, but in case if they have any doubt then you have to show them.

    I am not sure but I guess if you do not reply when ins will send you letter for an interview then your case will be automatically cancel.

    to farid

    2 farid name is confusing...lets change.

    if you maintained good residance record in canada and your passport does not have any record you should not have any problem. i am not sure about that 3 years thing, it's prbably for new immigrants. BUT my question is, what will happen to your lulac (AOS), if you stay in canada or if you leave usa?

    If my friend became a canadian landed immigrant early and went to canada. few months later came back to usa vie car and did not have his passport stamped and did not go back yet but now thinking to go back and apply for his canadian citizenship and stay there parmanently. According to the canadian new law any landed immigrant can stay out of canada for 3 years out of five years. Now my question is: do you think he will have a problem to get the canadian citizenship? or even have problem to renew his health card. He did filed tax regurarly in usa and canada. My friend AOS is pending through Lulac here in the usa. Do you think he will have a problem to go back to canada vie NY?

    -Thanks


    -Thanks

    Thanks both of you for addressing my issue here.
    I did not mean to create a debate between you but it is good to clear out the issue of whether a nataralized canadian (born in listed countries) should register. What i know is, at the begining before the special registration starts when US asked canadian citizen of 5 countries (iran, irac,n. korea.....) must register AT THE CANADIAN BORDER, Canadian govt protested that and i think it was removed later. Now after special registration announcement i'm sure.

    With due respects, I would like to point out that the requirement for Registration is Citizens and Nationals of certain countries and not natives. Since Farid is now a Canadian Citizen, he is not required to register.
    Fingerprint database of both countries is linked and they do a routine check, as to criminal history in both countries.
    Farid has messed up himself because he tried to play smart with the INS, but unknowingly commited a Immigration fraud, which can be problemitic to him.
    If he will abondon this petition, then he will still have a chance to adjust status through some other means, like employment etc.
    No heart feelings my friend. We both are trying to help people in our own ways.
    Good luck.

    Umesh, with all due respect---I beg to differ with you.

    I know it's a messed up situation but I don't believe that INS has a way to find out if Farid has become a citizen of Canada unless he tells them. Secondly, Even though he is a Canadian citizen, if he is a native of a contry whose citizens are required to register, he will have to register regardless of his Canadian citizenship.

    My advise to you Farid is that you should consult with an attorney regardinhg your situation. I'm trying to think what else can be done and the only other way I can think of is that you can enter the U.S on your Canadian Passport and hope that the immigration officer doesn't notice your country of birth on your passport and let you in without registration. In that case, you can go to INS and register with your native country passport. If you are registered at the port of entry, you can file a waiver and let INS know about Canadian citizenship and absence form the U.S. The LIFE Legalization says that you were to remain in this country illegaly between 1981-1988. If you left country in 1997, it should not make any difference.

    This is a very interesting situation and if any one has any other ideas, please post.
    Best Wishes.

    To Farid:
    You have really messed up yourself. After fingerprints they can find out your Canandian Citizenship. Since you are a Canadian Citizen now, so you are not supposed to register. You can come to U.S.A. any time on your Canandian Passport. It would be better for you to arrive here before new Visa policy will start.
    It would be better for you to keep your Canadian Citizenship and try to get GC through employment etc. and abondon this lulac/css case.
    Good luck.

    Thanks AZ for replying.

    I became Canadian just recently after i applied for LIFE. No i did not mention that in I-485. My last entry i mentioned in I-485 was in apr'82 as F-1. But i orginally came to usa in '80 as a visitor and overstayed until 3/82 then got i-20
    from a university came back in 1 month as a student and did not leave USA until 1997. I got canadian resident 1997 and travel back & forth to canada few times after that.
