naturalization interview

I have some questions regarding the Naturalization interview.

What would I have to bring with me for the interview? I seem to remember to read
somewhere that I would have to bring 5 years of income tax returns. What would be the
reaction of the interviewer when he/she finds out that 3 of the 5 years were filed
late? Late like 4 years late for the oldest one?

Would there be any negative response by me not working. My tax returns are only for
interest income and the amount of taxable income is below the poverty level. Will
there be questions asked like “what do you live on�? I am not on welfare and I
never was.

How about not residing in a dwelling for almost 2 years. I traveled the US with a
friend and his travel trailer. My stuff is in storage, my mail goes to Mail Boxes
etc., my credit card was used very little and my bank account was not very active. My
monthly interest checks I received “general delivery� somewhere along the way and I
cashed them somewhere along the road.

And to make things more complicated, a few years ago I married a foreigner in a
foreign country. We didn’t file any immigration papers for him and don’t plan on
doing so for another few years. I visit him 2 times a year in his country and he
visits me 2 times a year over here.

Do you think that the combination of all the items I mention may be a bit too
difficult for an INS interviewer to understand and I might be better off to wait a
few years? Maybe I should mention that I am a green card holder since many years and
not only the - for naturalization required - 5 years. Also, I paid taxes and lived a
“normal� life for many years until I stopped doing so.

Can you please help make a decision if I should or shouldn’t file for naturalization
at this time? Thank you.
