Q: Should I say YES or NO to the traffic violations on my oath ceremony?
Q: “Since your interview, have you been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, including traffic violations?”
I got cited couple months ago for having expired insurance, but when I attended the court date they don’t have my name on file. I even check it online multiple times if I have a record but nothing is showing up until to this date.
I’m having my Citizenship Oath ceremony in 4 weeks and I don’t know what to answer to that question.
A: What Oath Ceremony? Citizenship? Police force? Usually traffic citations are not considered crimes that you have to report on taking an oath regarding pending criminal actions. Usually they are infractions, unless it is a DUI or a misdemeanor. I really cannot say without knowing what kind of oath.
A: Supplemental response: if the question is: "Q: “Since your interview, have you been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, including traffic violations?” you should answer truthfully. You have been cited, if it was since your interview, the answer is "yes." I think you added this info after I did the initial response. Best of luck on the interview. This is Immigration/citizenship law not traffic law.
