What Are Form N-4 Monthly Report Naturalization Papers?
Each month, court clerks across the U.S. conducting citizenship ceremonies under Section 339 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1450) or 8 CFR 339 will need to submit USCIS Form N-4, monthly report naturalization papers.
These forms tell USCIS about citizens that have been naturalized in the specific court within the last month. USCIS can pay the court for naturalization ceremonies and will ensure each new naturalized American’s records are processed. The public does not file form N-4. Court clerks only file it.
