We will be watching this forum throughout Coronavirus/Covid emergencies to post information and to answer your questions about affected US immigration and visas:
I have gone into detail years ago in this forum, but I'll simplify it again. In 2007 I called the USCIS about this. They informed me simple traffic fines do not need to be included on the N-400. I contacted an immigration lawyer and asked him. He stated the same thing.
I did not mention them on my N-400. In my interview, I was asked if I had been to court. I said yes, the IO asked why and I said 2 speeding tickets in a county where court was mandatory. He asked if they were under the $500 and non DUI. I said yes. He then moved on.
I told him I was confused about the N-400 and if I should have reported them on the form and he said the same thing the others did and said no. His response is they don't regard simple traffic tickets such as parking, speeding, rolling through stop signs etc as needed to be documented at all since most people will have those. He stated they are only interested in serious traffic offenses that are in excess of $500 or ones that had a DUI.
This was in 2007, but I doubt very much anything has changed...
I forgot to mention a marijuana ticket in my n-400 and my denial letter states that i failed to submit court evidence/proof of payment or any probation on ticket 23222A(which is a code for alcohol open container) they accidentally wrote the wrong code. In my N-336 i brought proof with me from the court saying i paid a fine of $450.00 for ticket 23222B and was reduced to infraction. Does this ticket fall into the under $500 or it doesn't matter because it was drug related. I was not arrested or put under any probation and i was 17 and had got issued a ticket is there any way that the USCIS can find that information out to see if i'm telling the truth or they wont bother and deny me again because i didn't mention it in my N-400. I was only arrested once and i told them about it in my N-400 and there was no charges filed and they were dropped i had proof of that but it was also drug related controlled substance but it wasn't my fault.. I just forgot to tell them about my marijuana ticket i had received, At the end of my N-336 i was told they couldn't reach a decision right away because it needed to be reviewed by a supervisor do you guys think the supervisor will do an investigation and talk to the hall of justice and see if the information i provided is correct? I also had I had 3 red lights 1 stop sign 2 no seat belts and one for speeding some were over 500 because i took traffic school and there was a fee included but i also submitted proof of payment of the other 7 traffic tickets in my N-336 interview will all these effect my chances of getting my appeal approved even tho i provided proof of payment?
And what exactly you are trying to say?
I just realized after going back to the N400 form that they are asking for not just citations in the past 5 years but if you have EVER received a citation. ... So what are the guru's opinion on this?
Even if you want to show every single speeding ticket in the past 10 or 15 years, how do you go about even collecting this information?
