    Default Applying for Citizenship and Bad Credit

    Hi, I've been on Green Card for 8 years, and I'm now eligible for citizenship. However during this time I've badly mismanaged my finances, and have several collection agencies after me. My question is -- will this cause problems when applying for citizenship? Should I try to repair my credit report before applying?

    This has to do with good moral character. However, only criminal matters are taken into account. Your bad credit should not matter.
