Q: What do I do if my green card is about to expire and they ask me for extra documents to approve my citizenship app???
I had my citizenship interview today and I passed my civics test. But, the officer was really rude and wanted more documents which I could not provide at that time. In the notice did not say that I needed to bring any documents. She was even asking me for dates of birth of my husbands ex wife. After I submitt my documents. What do I need to do? Do I have a chance that they will deny my application?
A: Based on the information you provided the documents requested are typical. Had you had an attorney the attorney would have provided the documents with your initial application. What you need to do is provide the documents requested and the information requested.
It sounds like the officer is inquiring into the possibility of a chain of marriage fraud. The government can revoke your status and refer you to the immigration court for removal proceedings if this is found. Therefore i suggest you take this seriously and comply with all requests.
A: I suggest that you meet with an experienced immigration lawyer to review the request for evidence and make sure that you provide everything that they have asked for. Although you are not required to bring an attorney, sometimes the officers can be more difficult when you don't have counsel with you.
