USCIS released a revised version of
the N-400 form on February 4, 2014.
Starting Monday, May 5, 2014 USCIS
will only accept the revised version of
the form. The new form looks similar to
the old one, but has a few important
changes. We are working on updating
all of our materials and eventually our
trainings to reflect the changes to the
N-400 form. Take a look at the revised
version of the form by clicking here

updates from us about trainings and
for information about the new version of
the N-400 Form.
