    Ok so how do you prove they didn't know...selective service...

    Ok so my husband got here 2-3 months before his 26th birthday....he didn;t know he had to register...He got his permenant residency in December 08 we just found out he had to recently when applying for financial aid....he is now 33....so I went on there to find out if there is anything we can do...if we prove he didn't know then he can do his citizenship...so they say you need to write a letter and send documentation/proof...like a stamp on his passport or a letter from homeland security of when he entered-they posted this for illegal immigrants.....HELLO...they were illegal...they didn't get any stamp on their passport or register with homeland.....

    any suggestions or experiences...how do you prove they didn;t know or when they entered......

    I read somewhere on the uscis website or the Selective Service website that if they did not register before they turned 26, you have to wait until they are 31 before they can obtain citizenship. In this instance, since your husband is over 31 and certainly will be way past that age when he goes for his citizenship since he has to wait 3 years anyhow, I believe a simple statement will suffice.

    i think what we will probably do when hubs is 31 is write a letter and get it notarized

    This is where you can find the form you need to send to the Selective Service for a Statement from them. I don't remember where I read it but you will need a Status Information Letter to include with the Citizenship Application. From what I Understand they will type up a letter that you (hubby) never registered and that you (he) states that you (he) did not know you (he) needed to do so.

    I plan on doing this when the time comes for Hubby's citizenship.

    In my personal opinion, I think that if you send in the form to get a status information and don't apply until he is 31 or older, it should be sufficient. You may also wish to consult with an immigration lawyer first.

    I don't want to give specific advice on this, since I am not a lawyer and don't want to give out incorrect information.

    I can tell you however, that I was 47 at my naturalization interview. I registered years ago when I was 25, and I had my confirmation letter with me. The interviewing officer did not even look at it, because I was way past the age where registration was required. I have never been out of immigration status either, so my case was different than many of yours.
    I am not a lawyer. Anything I post is not - and should not be taken as - legal advice, as I am not qualified to give legal advice. Anything I post is my laymans opinion only. Consult with a qualified immigration lawyer should you require actual legal guidance. Please do not PM me with immigration questions they will not be answered., Ask your questions on the board, as the public question and answer sessions may benefit someone else in the same situation as you.

    I can provide an example if not an answer.
    The son of a friend of mine went to his naturalization interview knowing that he had failed to register (came to US at 22, father older immigrant, he just did not know). They did not worry about it at all.
    I suggest you get the status letter from Selective Service and when asked about it answer the question with the truth.
    good luck

    Absolutely not a lawyer - the value of my comments is almost certainly equal to the price paid
