  • citizenship interview

    Can the son appear with his disable parent for his citizenship interview? To act as his translator and help him with his mobility? Do I have to fill out form G-28 notice entry of appearance as attorneys or representative?

      To help with your mobility, yes. A translator going with a USCIS interviewee is normally allowed. But especially "not" for a naturalization interview. Because you have to demonstrate your basic knowledge of the English language. This is one of the few milestones in order for an immigrant to become a new US citizen.

        we are also filing Form N-648 with N-400, Medical Certification for disability exceptions to waive the Civic and English test.

          Oh, you didn't say beforehand. I couldn't have guessed. Form N-648 approval is highly discretionary, but not impossible. They will look at its merits based on your actual ocular condition against your medical certification. Good luck to you then.

            Sorry, Rough Neighbor - it's a no-no. A son may accompany his parent to the interview as a WITNESS ONLY. At least in my local USCIS office they don't allow relatives of an applicant to act as interpreters. It may be different at your local office, Gussan, but to be on the safe side - hire a professional interpreter. If you have trouble finding one, call local state court. They usually have a list of qualified interpreters and will give you his or her telephone number.

            Good luck.

              Does the USCIS send the applicant letter of N-648 approval/denial or they tell the applicant at the time of the interview?

                Sorry, Verbalist, but what did I say that deserved your double no's? Just curious though.

                  Sorry, Rough Neighbor, it wasn't a double "no" just a "no-no" as in a playful expression meaning - don't do that. In this case - using a relative of petitioner as interpreter not allowed. But I remarked it may be different in other jurisdictions.

                    Haha, semantics. Of course I know its meaning. Forget it. Happy now? Yeah, I love making other people happy.
