Asked over 4 years ago - Miami, FLFlag
I am a 41 y/o male applying for Citizenship. I never registered with the Selective Services because I wasn't aware I had to. I came to the US first at 18 with a F1 Visa, then at 23 also with an I-20 visa. I remained in the US while my residency was approved (2/2004) I have a letter from Selective Service stating that I didnt registered but that I shouldn't be denied of benefits. How do I proceed? Thank you

Since you were living in the USA while you were 26 years old, since you did not register with the Selective Service and you are no longer eligible to register, you must attach a statement explaining why you did not register to your naturalization application. The letter from the Selective Service should also be submitted.
