I'm sorry there were a few typos in the question you sent.

Are you trying to find out whether the criminal charges can cause a denial of your naturalization paperwork?

when I ask 3 yrs ago say it won't fact the second case since it was dismissed and the firs case in the 1990's was a misdemeanor
Immigration Lawyer: Nisha Jones,

Thank you for clarifying, and yes, that's correct.

This won't be the basis for a denial since you did not receive a conviction and since the other was a misdemeanor, almost 30 years ago.

Since you've updated your address with USCIS, your correspondence will be sent to you there and you can complete the naturalization process in Florida.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
