Hello,I am a us citizen and ready to file a petition i-130 for my mother whos in Pakistan. I have a little confusion about Q 10 and 14b from part B (Information about you)1: Do I have to write my alien number even if I am us citizen now and no more an alien?2: Do I have to check yes in 14b since I did gain permeant residence through Marriage to US citizen. Why I am not sure about this is because I am no more an alien and a naturalized US citizen, and q14 is not applicable on me. Here 14b is related to q14.
State/Country relating to question: Illinois
1) No, you would not need to write your previous alien number because you are a US citizen. You would simply write N/A.
2) You would still need to answer Question 14b as "yes" even though Question 14 is not applicable to you. Question 14b cannot be omitted.
