United States Citizenship & Naturalization – Red Flags When Applying for US Citizenship

If you are thinking of applying for citizenship and you have any of the below situations, you should proceed with caution and seek the advice of a Shupe Dhawan attorney prior to applying. The below are the red flag situations, which typically cause issues when a person applies for citizenship:

  1. You haven’t filed your taxes for the last three to five years, or have unpaid and overdue taxes;
  2. You have overdue child support or alimony payments;
  3. You have been charged with committing a crime, or arrested, for any type of crime, including a DUI;
  4. You have spent any time in jail or prison;
  5. Your green card is currently expired, or will be expiring prior to your application;
  6. You cannot demonstrate good moral character;
  7. You were living in the United States between the ages of 18 and 26 and failed to register for selective service;
  8. You have registered to vote or have voted in any federal, state, or local election;
  9. You have been married to more than one person at the same time, which can happen if you were never legally divorced from a prior spouse and were re-married;
  10. You have claimed to be a Untied States Citizen;
  11. You have been removed or deported from the United States; or
  12. You have had a prior application for United States Citizenship denied;

Denial of citizenship can result in removal or deportation proceedings. If you have any of the above situations, it is extremely important that you consult with a Shupe Dhawan attorney.
