You will be under Oath during the U.S. citizenship test interview so it is very important that you tell the truth. If you lie during your interview, you will be denied citizenship. If you get your citizenship and USCIS finds out that you lied on your application or during the interview, your citizenship will be taken away.
USCIS already knows a lot about you, so you might as well tell the truth. They ask questions to see if you are going to tell the truth. Just plainly explain any discrepancies. If you are not sure if you answered a question correctly on your N-400 form, talk to the officer about it. If you are worried about some particular points, such as excessive travel or some criminal conviction for example, you should seek advice from a lawyer, or bring a lawyer with you, but don’t try to hide anything.
Don’t hold back information or lie because you think the truth might compromise your chances at getting U.S. citizenship. If you don’t know the answer to a question, don’t make up the answer; just plainly say that you don’t know the answer.
You should also always inform USCIS of any change of address within 10 days of moving in the United States or its territories. If you fail to do so, you will be charged with a misdemeanor crime, which can result in a fine up to $200 or imprisonment up to 30 days, or both. You may also be subject to removal from the United States. You can use USCIS convenient Online Change of Address system.
