Do I really need the letter, will I be ask for it during the interview? On the n-400 form it says to provide it only if your 26 to 31 or 29 if you're married to a us citizen ( which I am ). But on the n-400 document check list it says to provide if you didn't resigster and are 26 or older. So I'm wondering will they ask me for it during the interview or will I be fine?
If you're 31 than the 5 year good moral character disqualification does not apply to you for failure to register with Selective Service as the failure was not within the last 5 years.
Once you attain age 31, then the "statute of limitations" on the failure to register for SS applies and you will not be bothered with that question during your citizenship interview.
Simply answer the question on the N-400 and move on. You will not need to attach or provide any "status letter" whatsoever.
