So just send n-400 with the copy of the b1 b2visa and explain that I really didn't know about Selective Service until now?
I arrived here with a B1-B2 Visa in 1995. At that time I was 22 years old. With this type of visa I had a six months permission to stay as a visitor. However, I didn't return to my Country until I became a permanent resident in 05/2004 I was already 31 years old and I never heard of the Selective Service. We even had a lawyer prepared and file my application to become a permanent resident and he never mentioned Selective Service.
So as for the question. "Are you a male who lived in the United States at any time between your 18th and 26th birthdays in any status except as a lawful nonimmigrant? I guess my answer should be Yes?...
If I say yes then, should I just attach a statement explaining why I did not register to the N-400 application? or
should I file a request for "Status information letter" from the Selective Service?, or should I do both.
If someone could help please and thank you.
I'm a US citizen by birth. I and my family moved out of the States when I was only about 9 months. I have lived in Finland ever since.
I wanted to renew my old US passport and visited consulate and everything went well. Now that I graduated I'm planning to move (back) to the States. I Just turned 26 and learned that I should have signed to Selective Service.
Can this be a problem ? I won't be needing any federal benefits or anything. I'll have job ready and I will rent an apartment.
I see that I might not be required to sign because I have been non immigrant between age 18 and 26. But I'm dual citizen so I'm not quite sure.
Thanks for your help!
