USCIS Announces Changes to Application for Naturalization

On February 4, 2014, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced changes to the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization (citizenship). The form has doubled in length and is now 21 pages. The increase in length is due, in part, to additional questions related to determinations about good moral character and national security. 

Beginning on May 5, 2014, USCIS will only accept the new (09/13/2013) edition of the Form N-400. It is anticipated that these changes will make it more challenging for applicants and those who help applicants with naturalization. 

For a permanent resident thinking about becoming a citizen – now may be a good time to get started and avoid having to deal with the longer form. If you have any questions about the process of naturalization or need assistance in completing the application, please feel free to call and schedule an appointment by calling the office at 616-233-9300.
