    Question How to Fill Out the N400 when You're on Probation After Reckless Driving

    Hello,

    I am recently thinking to apply for Citizenship. I am concerned how to fill out the N400 the part where questions about moral character. My situation is that I was charged Reckless Driving in the state of Connecticut. In Connecticut, reckless driving is considered to be a misdemeanor. However, I was able to use the AR program to waive my charge and it will be off my record once my probation is complete. Right now I am 3 months away to finish my probation. I am wonder if this is the right time for me to apply for citizenship?

    If so, should I check "Yes" for the following questions?
    Have you EVER been arrested, cited, or detained by any law enforcement officer (including any immigration official or any official of the U.S. armed forces) for any reason?

    Have you EVER been charged with committing, attempting to commit, or assisting in committing a crime or offense?

    Have you EVER been convicted of a crime or offense?

    Have you EVER been placed in an alternative sentencing or a rehabilitative program (for example, diversion, deferred prosecution, withheld adjudication, deferred adjudication)?

    Thank you so much

    You were arrested.
    You were charged.
    You were not yet convicted if you are in the AR program.
    You were placed in an alternative program.

    Explain in the attached documents just what happened.
    Traffic issues (even criminal ones) when fully disclosed will only be a slight speed bump in the process.
