N-400 Application for Naturalization:
Attorney Service: $500.
Click here for details.

Top Ten Reasons N-400 Applications Are Denied

1 – Failing the English Test

USCIS will schedule them to come back for another interview within 60-90 days of the first interview and will deny applicant’s Form N-400 if they fail the test a second time

2 – Failing the U.S. History and Government Test

There are 100 civics questions on the naturalization test

During the naturalization interview, applicant will be asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions in English

Applicant must answer correctly 6 of the 10 questions to pass the civics test

USCIS will deny application if test is failed the second time

3 – Criminal History

USCIS will obtain applicant’s biometrics and run a criminal background check

USCIS will check if applicant has committed a crime in other countries as well

Permanent denial of citizenship: If applicant has ever been convicted of a murder or aggravated felony (any crime of violence, or theft or burglary that resulted in a prison term of one year or more will be considered an aggravated felony)

Other crimes may result in temporary denial of citizenship, meaning applicant can reapply after five years (or three for applicants married to and living with a U.S. citizen)

4 – Failure to Meet Continuous Residence and Physical Presence Requirements

Travel outside the United States can disrupt applicant’s continuous residence

Applicant should avoid any trips abroad of six months or longer

5 – Failure to Pay Taxes

Applicant should develop a plan to pay the taxes so they can demonstrate to USCIS that they’re fixing the problem

6 – Willful Failure to Support Dependents

If an applicant for naturalization has a minor child or children who do not live with the applicant, it is necessary to prove that the applicant is providing adequate financial support

If there is a court order of support, it is important to have evidence of compliance with that order

7 – Fraud and Lying to USCIS

If USCIS believes that applicant’s answer to a question is deceptive or untrue, their Application for Naturalization will be delayed and could be denied regardless if the error was innocent or/and unintentional

If USCIS determines that a green card was issued (even many years before) in a fraudulent manner, citizenship may be denied

8 – Failing to Register for Selective Service

Men between the ages of 18 and 26 are expected to register for the Selective Service and provide proof for the purposes of naturalizing as a U.S. citizen

9 – Divorce

Those who apply for citizenship under the three year rule will need to prove that they are still married to the U.S. citizen spouse who sponsored them for legal permanent resident status

If they have divorced their applications will be denied

10 – Failure to Meet Three Month Residency Requirement

An applicant for naturalization must file their application for naturalization with the State or Service District that has jurisdiction over his or her place of residence

The applicant must have resided in that location for at least three months prior to filing

I've had the pleasure of conducting business with this law firm for the last 10 years. They have been nothing but the best for every aspect of immigration need I had. From F1 all the way to citizenship. They're probably the most affordable, knowledgeable, and most efficient immigration law firm out there. Plus, they always provide responses to questions in a very timely manner. Trust me, other immigration law firms will cost you an arm and a leg for the same or less of a service compared to this law firm. Give them a call, check out their website. You will not regret it.

Because of John and his team my wife and I were able to travel back to the states, get married and have a Green Card without any headaches. John’s efforts were amazing and it shows because my wife and I didn’t have to go to the Green card interview. We had a strong enough case to receive the Green card in the mail. If you’re seeking a Lawyer that will be impartial, he’s your guy.

Marc and John Dorer worked on our case to file for AOS after our L1A was approved. Marc and John are professionals and extremely reasonable-priced. The reason they are able to cut the price is because they don't spend time consulting you or guiding you and will never get on call. All communications are email only, so if you know precisely what you want they will do all the paper-work, follow the trail and get the job done. If you are confused and need advice and consulting, they may not be the right lawyers. But since we were doing our AOS, it worked out perfectly well and they did their job extremely professionally. Would recommend them every time to get the work done.

At first I thought I could have very well gone through the green card application process on my own and saved all lawyer fees. Its funny how some lawyers can charge in excess of 2K for this. However at Taylor and Associates the price seemed more reasonable and felt it made sense to go with one at that price. There were some doubts that arose in our mind which they cleared in a timely manner and seemed very knowledgeable in this area. Its for moments like these when having a professional around helps. While we can get busy with our lives and with laws constantly changing, I would definitely recommend them - a small price to pay for peace of mind.
