  1. I am helping a friend file, but twice out of four trips she had time out of the USA for more than 6 months. This was due to medical necessity in order to heal from surgeries. Can there be an exception in this case if there are medical documents to prove that there were surgeries?

  2. In Feb 2020 I will be in my 5th year here in US, but there are few times i went out of US for a vacation. My first vacation was 5 months and 3 weeks in 2015-16, 2nd was for 1 month and 1 week in 2018. Im planning to have 1 more vacation probably for 1 month this coming May of this year. It will be a total 8 months all in all for all the trips. My question is, can I apply for my naturalization next year February 2020? I was not physically present in the US by a total of 8 months in 5 years, will I have to extend or pay the 8 months that I was out of US before I can apply for my naturalization or can I proceed in applying next February 2020?

  3. I have 7 years married to a citizen we have two children, we have apartments together, credit card and proof that we have been together, two years ago I was in an application called credit karma and I filled my taxes there, my mistake was that I made single and many mistakes, I don’t even knew what I was doing, I just did it out of curiosity, then I verified and I saw many mistakes, this year fill in as head of the household because the person who helped me fill it told me that if I contributed to the house I could fill it up, my problem is that I want to make an amendment and solve all this problem! My interview for citizenship is in two weeks, can this affect me? If I take the amendment that I am solving the problem, does it affect me? What I can do?

  4. What happen if an individual inadvertently registered to vote and voted in federal election. not knowing that you have made a false claim to us citizenship. some people they don't know think they are doing their civic duty. what are the consequence of these actions while applying for naturalization?

  5. I applied for food stamp for my children because my husband was suspended from his work and we had economic problems, I took the benefits for about 4 or 5 months then it was resolved and I stopped taking them, in my N400 form in question 30 – I part 12: Have you committed misrepresentation to get public benefits I said yes, because for me to get food coupons I said that my husband's finances and mine were separated and I only present my income, I have my husbands suspension letter as proof, the day of my interview might this affect me? Is it possible that I can correct my answer if I clarify the situation?

  6. Hi I have question about the 3 month on address rule. If I filed early I moved to CA from AZ on 07/01/19 and filed for my N-400 on 09/26/19. Is the USCIS not going to approve my application even if its only a matter of 4 days before it can be 3 months. Ot it has to be exactly or more than 3 months. I had my interview, passed the english test, writing test and civics question test. But the interviewer highlighted I didn’t lived on my address for 3 months before applying. Considering I live in CA from 07/01/19 till now 01/20. Thank you so much

  7. Hi! Thank you for the video. I was out of the country for 6 months and 5 days working for a US non profit abroad. 2 questions:
    (1) How can I show proof that my immediate family remained in the U.S. How do I show my relationship with my mom? My birth certificate is in Spanish, do I need to translate it and get it notified, or can I show her Green card, her entries to the US?

    (2) what are the chances that I would get denied? I kept my bank account, paid taxes, and have a letter from the non-profit stating the reasons I was out. Thank you for your help!

  8. I have a question . I have two traffic tickets but these tickets are under my attorney I should pay o just say that these tickets are pending?

  9. Hi, About physical presence, when my family (spouse and child) have lived in the country but my job has been abroad, without bank account, insurance, rent and I have been about 9 months of some the years abroad (but not more than 6 months any time) , and I have did the rest of conditions, am I continuous resident?

  10. Thanks so much for your video. My interview will be in 10 days. Im concerned because I answered "no" to question #48 (in my understanding bear arms means go to a combat to kill), but I did say "yes" for non combatant service. I dont have any document from church etc, nothing. If I say yes to this question, in case they would need me in a combat, instead of help I could be a hold back, not because I want. Please let me know if this will be a problem for my naturalization process. If yes, is there a way to fix it? Thanks so much!

  11. Excuse me sir i have a big problem:
    I apply online for my citizenship, the website where I applied to said I have to wait 45 days before getting a letter from uscis for the confirmation of my payment and in this letter I was supposed to get my case number. Now it’s more than 45 days and I didn’t received any mail from uscis, the company charged me $195 for the service and I don’t know what I can do. My friend in Washington said me she got her confirmation and her case number after 2days when she applied. I’m still waiting, I don’t know what I should do. Plz give me some advices. Thank you
