OK, thank you very much for the information, and your continued patience. Kindly remember to give me a positive rating before leaving this site today. I do not get a salary here, so your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. If that does not happen, it is as if I never worked, which I am sure you agree would not be an ideal outcome. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, in order to help me get credit for doing my job. Thank you!
While I know the N-400 process creates anxiety for applicants, the concerns you are experiencing are nothing to be worried about.
QUESTION: I cannot possibly remember all or the exact dates of membership. What shall I do here?
ANSWER: All you are tasked with doing is providing as much information as you can, to the best of your knowledge. So if there is something you do not remember, leave it blank, and then in an addendum to the form, explain that you cannot remember specific dates of membership. This will not determine the outcome of the application for naturalization.
QUESTION: Also, right now I serve on two of my town committees as an appointee by the Selectman. I did not run for office since I am not a citizen. Mentioning those committees might raise a flag, since the reviewer might think that I ran for office without being a citizen. What shall I do here?
ANSWER: The same thing. Answer honestly, and then explain that you were appointed to positions, not elected, and that the positions did not require you to be a US citizen.
I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to discuss this or anything else by phone, I can send you an offer for that. There will be an additional fee, if you want to do that. Please let me know and I will send you the offer.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating. I do not get a salary here and this is the only way I am compensated for my efforts. So please do not forget to do that before you log off. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can continue to ask questions even after you have given a rating. Again, giving me a positive rating is the ONLY way I get credit for helping you.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
A BONUS is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
