  • citizenship and voluntary departure??

    I justgot mu passport stamped today and I should be getting the green card in the mail in a few weeks.

    On the Citizenship application they told me to pick up it asks if you ever been arrested?

    Since I've been caught by INS and got voluntary departure about 15 yrs ago, am I still going to be able to become a citizen whenever I can apply??

      That's an interesting question Mauka. I think you need to consult a lawyer or go to the devil itself and ask the USCIS. Just from what you said, I think that you will have a good chance to get citizenship because by the time you are eligiible, the offence would have been 20 years old but more importantly, I would assume that you had to declare this incident on your green card application and if yes I would be amazed if this issue never came up at your interview......did it?
