One of my relative wanted to apply for a citizenship, but she is not sure how it work when it come to having a record in the background. In 1994 she was charge with Fraud, it has now been 18 years since it happen. One of her friend told her that when she fill out the citizenship application she didn't really have to include that because they only look back 10 years, it that true? I personally told her she should include it anyway so it won't look like she is hiding it, but she told me she just want to save time so that way she don't have to go back to california and get the court docket etc. Now I just wanted to know when they do background check it will show up correct? Even if she don't put it on there, or will it not show because it has been almost 20 years since the incident.
