I have been married for 3 years. I went for my citizenship interview and passed the tests etc. I was told I would be informed of the result in the mail as I did forget out home phone number (we never used it), and I didnt have alot of new marital union material, just my new health insurance card. I received a RFE for myself and my spouse to appear at the office with proof of marital union etc. I have actually been separated for 6 months but my spouse insisted I follow through with the application and I didnt tell the officer that. Can I withdraw my N400 and will I have to return the RFE if I send a withdrawal letter. Seems the withdrawal letter would be sufficient.
If my N400 is denied, can I reapply?
You need to seek the advice of an immigration attorney.
This is extremely problematic now that you have attended the interview and represented that you were still living in marital union. You can try withdrawing, but speak to a lawyer.
If they deny, you may not be in a position to refile - they may take the position that you misrepresented and so take action to take away the green card/remove you.
Speak with an attorney before doing anything further.
Agree with my colleagues.
