    Hi,

    For the citizenship interview, if someone fails the N400 application questions and is asked to come again, in the second interview do they test the applicant more as compared to the first one? By testing, I mean to say do they ask more questions and ask the applicant for more detailed answers? Can they ask the reason why they flunked the first one? Do the officer have the previous interview notes?

    Have a great day.

    Thanks.

    It depends on the reason for the second interview.

    Thanks for the fast response. The reason for not passing was that applicant wasn't aware that they go through the N400 application. The applicant passed the civic test but got confused when asked about the N400 questions. The applicant was elderly and got confused as he wasn't mentally ready for these questions. So do you think the officer will be expecting detailed answers? And will the officer refer to previous interview notes?
    THanks and have a great day.

    Probably not. Have someone go in with the applicant to help.

    You are the best. I have never seen such quick response from any other law office. Others are charging money but you do it as a free service.

    I know they allow some near n dear one during the interview but isn't the accompanying person supposed to be quiet all the time? Then how can they help the applicant by accompanying them in?

    Thanks.

    It depends. They want to make sure that the applicants speaks, reads, and writes English and knows the answers to the civics questions without help. Otherwise, a helper can assist with clarifying questions and answers.
