    If you’re being charged with a second degree misdemeanor, yet have you not been convicted , should you still attend the interview or postponed your appointment date?

    I was translating for a interviewee yesterday. The interviewer asked him about his daughter's birthday.
    He answered the month and date. But he was not quite sure of the birth year. So he was hesitant.
    The interviewer was saying suddenly that she had to close the interview because the interviewee did not have full information that he needed.
    And then a little bit later, he finally blurted out the birth year. It went smooth after then.
    I've been translated a lot of people at interview, but it was first time that I was almost threatened to go back and return again…..Phew~~~~

    I’m doing my interview soon, my only concern is that I’m not employed at this time since I’m going to school full time and taking care of my daughter while my husband works. I have been employed in the last five years full time but have not been employed since April 2019. Will this be a problem I’m kind of worried?

    Thank you so much for your video. I need guidance. So my interview is next month and I realized that I missed two things in my form: one employer I worked for like a month and half and also I missed one of my professional memberships in part 12. Question 9B. Also I filed online as single never married but two boxes about my spouse boxes were checked mistakenly and not by me. I guess due to online technical issues. My question is: should I mention these amendments and corrections during my interview or should I send an explanation letter to my field office? I really appreciate the help and looking forward to your response. Thank you in advance.

    I didn’t pass on the Friday they question me about the form N400 and I didn’t study on it because my husband fill up on it because I don’t know much that English. My husband is American. So the lady that interview me was so not happy on me she’s kind of very mad at me because I don’t know her questions about the form I should search it here in Youtube now I have to go back 60 days the lady is not happy she’s mad at me I’m sorry for that miss Lady I’m so nervous then. My friend tells me late when I told them that I pass the book test, but field on the formN400 I didn’t know that you have to study it too.im so sad 😭

    Not trying to be funny, but after watching this video and you failed your interview than something is actually wrong with you seriously. They explain it in the simplest steps from the greeting of the office to the walking etc..

    I became a US citizen in October and I changed my name as well. My new name is on my certificate.
    Questions:
    How do I obtain a true copy of the petition I received and turned in with my green card during my Naturalization ceremony? I've applied for a new SS card.
    Driver's license name change is next. Is my naturalization certificate and new SS card enough or do I require the petition for name change document as well?

    My interview was on the 14th, I got there an hour before time and I presented my documents then 15 mins later they called my name, I was nervous, I got to the office with the officer, he asked me to swear to tell the truth I did, he asked me 6 questions, I answered them then asked more questions about my past, then made me read a phrase which I did then made me write another phrase I did then congratulated me then that's it.
