Green Cardby Debbie McGoldrick
- Extending your stay with a 90 day holiday waiver - is it possible?
- Renewing my Irish child’s US passport without getting her American Dad involved
- Having divorced my American wife can I get my new Irish girlfriend a visa?
- I-94 arrival and departure cards in United States will soon be obsolete
- Can I reclaim an old Green Card and move back to the US?
"I have lived in the U.S. for nine years. I have a green card that I received through the diversity visa lottery six years ago. I would like to apply for citizenship this year, but I’m wondering if I should just leave well enough alone and be happy enough with my green card. I started paying taxes last year. If I had to go back and re-file I would stuck owing a lot of money that right now I cannot afford. How should I handle this with regards to citizenship? And how will immigration really know that I didn’t file taxes?"
“Also, I am being sued by someone I was involved in an automobile accident with last year. I am counter-suing as the accident definitely wasn’t my fault, but I’m worried that this could be an issue with the citizenship application. Is this so?”
The lawsuit will not be an issue when it comes time to filing your naturalization case. However, your tax history will be.
