Mistake in N-400, Ammendment or correct during interview?
I attempted to enter the USA illegally in 1997, and since then I (and my wife) have been granted asylum, obtained green card, etc.
I completed my wife's N-400 and she signed it, and I sent it in. She has been fingerprinted, and waiting for the interview letter.
Going through the form, I discovered a huge mistake I made: In the question
Helped anyone enter or try to enter the USA illegally, I checked off "No"
This is obviously incorrect, and I can't believe I made such a stupid mistake.
I don't know what to tell her (she has not seen family for the last 10 years).
- Is there a way to ammend this form? I see a filing fee for a N-410 form but not the actual form anywhere
- Or, is it possible to correct this during the interview?
- What's the worst that can happen if the application is denied? Will she have to wait for 5 years to reapply?
Unfortunately we are not in a position to engage a lawyer--I've been out of a job for 18 months and every day is tough
