Got a DUI: Can I file Form N-400 for U.S. citizenship?
A DUI is not a bar to citizenship, but can hurt your good moral character showing.
I got arrested and convicted for driving under the influence of alcohol, at a checkpoint on New Year’s Eve. It was the first time in my life I’d ever been arrested. Does having this crime on my record ruin my chances of applying for U.S. citizenship? Should I wait a while before applying? Or just not mention it?
