Dec 14, 2008 --- Married to US Citizen
Jun 17, 2009 --- Received my green card
Dec 21, 2009 --- Arrested for shoplifting
Sep 19, 2012 --- File N-400
Jan 07, 2013 --- N-400 Interview
Officer asked for additional documents about my marriage and said the supervisor will review the shoplifting case.
Jan 08, 2013 --- Sent USCIS additional documents about marriage
I assume USCIS will consider my marriage is in good faith but it will deny my application based on bad moral characteristic. When can I re-apply for Naturalization?
(1) --- Wait 3 years (after the arrest) for the arrest to be cleared if I am married to a US Citizen. Meaning I can re-apply RIGHT AFTER they deny my N-400.
(2) --- Wait 5 years for the arrest can be cleared (re-apply after Dec 21, 2014)
