When you're going to your naturalization interview, there are many items you should bring with you-one of which is NOT your children. You'll need several documents, and all of them will need to be original or certified copies. Documents containing information in a language other than English must be translated. Translators must be able to certify that they're competent to translate accurately. Bring your alien registration card, photo I-D, which can be a driver's license or state-issued I-D card, your passport, and any I-N-S travel documents. If you've ever been arrested, you'll need to show a complete arrest report, probation reports, certified court dispositions. Don't forget copies of your tax returns from recent years. Males between the ages of 18 and 31 need to bring evidence of registration with Selective Services. You should have registered before your twenty-sixth birthday. If you can't take the oath of allegiance to the U-S due to religious beliefs, bring a letter from your church explaining how your beliefs conflict with the oath. Also bring proof of financial support if you're supporting minor children outside the U-S. Marriage to a U-S citizen will require proof that your spouse has been a citizen for over three years, your marriage certificate, proof of termination of all prior marriage, and proof that your marriage is legitimate. You can prove a bona fide (bone-uh-fide) marriage with documents showing evidence of joint bank accounts or tax returns, lease agreements, or proof of joint ownership of investments, automobiles, or health insurance. Be on time for your interview, because rescheduling can delay the processing of your case. A lawyer in your area specializing in immigration law can give you more specific information for your individual naturalization case.
