From the Immigrant Legal Resource Center:
On February 4, 2014, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced changes to the Form N-400, Application for Naturalization. This form has doubled in length, and is now 21 pages. The increase in length is due in part to additional questions related to determinations about good moral character and national security.
Beginning on May 5, 2014, USCIS will only accept the new (09/13/13) edition. We anticipate these changes will make it more challenging for applicants and advocates assisting applicants with naturalization, particularly those participating in group processing workshops.
The ILRC is in the process of developing an annotated version of the new N-400 with comments to help advocates and applicants when filling out the new form. For more information, contact Aidin Castillo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
