permanent resident and filing 4 citizenship. One question on I-400 asks about wife's legal status. She came illegal @ 13. What should I put down for her legal status? And will her being illegal hurt me becoming a citizen?
HI. you should always put the truth.....so for legal status write N/A. and no this will probably not hurt your citizenship....however...if you lie then your citizenship could be revoked and placed in question....if such lie comes to light....and if you are thinking of petitioning for her in the future...your natz could very much be scrutinized in the future. Good Luck!!!
