Thank you! I...

Thank you! I was denied US Citizenship, I've been in the US since the '80s with permanent resident alien status, my faather was a us citizen and so is my husband, i ignorantly voted in 2000 for Bush, and claimed to be us citizen on a loan application for my husband.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?

March 1, i received the denial letter, i have 30 days to respond, i just don't know what to do. No, i have not responded, but I'm obviously running out of time.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about the citizenship application?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The loan application was for my husband who is a us citizen, i forgot i did it for him, and i told the officer i had claimed to be a us citizen. nothing else.

Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 15 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help. Also, please do NOT click on the Opt Out button because if you do, it would prevent me from communicating with you and then it could take a long time before another expert responds to you.

Please give me a few minutes to review your question and I will be right with you with an answer. Sorry for any delay. I may have to do some research and at the same time I read and type fast, but not that fast! Thank you for your patience.

you can call me if you want

Sorry for the delay. I just ask that if the news is not good that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.

It is an additional fee for a phone call. Anyway, when did you make the loan application?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
