My son did not register for the Selective Service when he was between 18 - 26 because he did not know he had to do that . Now he will apply for citizenship and that is one of the question . He is now 29 years old . Can he truthfully explain that he really honestly did not know he had to register for Selective Perice ? Thanks you !
Your son will need provide evidence that he did not knowingly and willfully fail to register for Selective Service when he files his naturalization application. He needs to write a letter of explanation to the Selective Service and will receive a Status Information letter, which he should submit with his naturalization application.
