My mother wants to apply for US citizenship,she is 63 years old, but lack English abilities.

Los Angeles, CA |

She wants to take the citizenship test in her native language (Korean) but she doesn't meet the minimum age limit and she's only been in states for 5 years. Is there anyway to take it in Korean? She is at a very fragile mental state as she is going through severe anxiety and depression, so it's very difficult for her to learn English right now.

  1. It might be possible to get an exemption if the mnetal state is severe enough that it will prevent her from learning the necessary english. Form N-648 should be filed with the N-400.
