A: If you are a green card holder, not just someone with an employment authorization card, then you will likely need to delay filing for naturalization.

You ought to hire a competent and experienced immigration attorney to determine when you should file for naturalization. Also, whether there is a more serious related charge based upon the DUI law in your State. Do this before you decide what to do in court.

Supervision due to a DUI will disqualify an applicant until the supervision is proven to be successful completed and terminated by the court.
