What happens if my form N-400 is denied?

U.S. citizenship is perhaps the greatest benefit any immigrant can receive. When applying for citizenship using Form N-400, it is paramount to review the application thoroughly to make sure there no mistakes and that the information provided is correct. In some cases USCIS may need additional documents or evidence. In such cases, the applicant will be informed in writing of the additional documentation they will need to provide. Failing to do so will suspend the naturalization process.

In the unlikely event that an application cannot be granted, USCIS will return Form N-400 along with any fees paid and a written explanation for the denial.

If the applicant feels that USCIS was wrong to deny the citizenship application, they may request a hearing with a USCIS officer. The denial letter will explain how to request a hearing and will include the form needed to do so. The form for filing an appeal is Form-N-336, Request for Hearing on a Decision in Naturalization Proceedings. Applicants are required to file the form with USCIS, including the correct fee, within 30 days after having received the denial letter.
