Citizenship application denied

Miami, FL |

I claimed US Citizenship in job application. Now it is little over two years since the deniel.
Is there any lawyer can help me? Whoever I talk to, say dont apply, even dont go out of country, you may not be allowed to get back. Is that true?
I had no idea, that you are not a citizen yet until you take the oath. Worse moment is that my citizenship interview was on Monday, and I did the federal job aplication on Saturday, thinking, by the time employer will read my resume, I will become a citizen on Monday morning. Of course, now that is not important, but I was wondering if ANY lawyer exist who can help me. please

  1. Best answer

    You will not be charged as inadmissible [under INA 212(a)(6)(c)(ii)] because that section of the Immigration and Nationality Act only applies "for falsely representing yourself as a US citizen for the purpose of obtaining any benefit under the INA". However, that may affect you "good moral character" for naturalization purposes during the five year statutory period.

    I suggest that you get help from an experienced immigration attorney.

    Law Office of Luis A. Guerra (954) 434-5800. This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice.


  2. Have you spoken with a lawyer in your town?


  3. This is a complicated area of the law and it depends upon if the claim to citizenship resulted in your receiving a benefit under the Immigration and Nationality Act. However, your fact pattern is not realy clear as you mention a denial, but then refer to expecting to get sworn-in on Monday morning. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the facts of your case and advise you how best to proceed.
