The New N-400 Citizenship Application and Our Students

As of May 5, 2014, the new N-400 form is required for all applications for U.S. citizenship. The form is longer than the previous one, it adds to the personal information required about marital status and children, it asks several more questions to comply with recent federal legislation related to terrorism and child soldiers, and it therefore has some important implications for the instruction we offer our students who are preparing for their naturalization interview and citizenship exam.
