US citizenship application question for married couple.

Asked over 2 years ago - San Jose, CA

My spouse and I are already 5yrs as a permanent resident. Now we plan to fill out N400 form and apply for US citizenship. Can we do this together? I mean go thru the process like send applications, biometrics, naturalization interview, etc together? If so, how should we do it? Does USCIS treat US application per forms submitted or married couples can be scheduled together? Please advise and I'm in the bay area if that matters.

    Answered . You can submit your applications together, but USCIS will not always schedule the appointments on the same day.

    Answered . There is no prohibition against putting two packages in the same envelope but keep in mind they are two separate cases.

    Answered . My colleagues are correct. Moreover, it is wise to have an attorney you trust go over the requirements with you and your husband before submitting the paperwork, just to make sure there is no risk in applying. Good luck.
