Can a DUI impact citizenship? 4 Answers as of June 16, 2011My husband got a DUI 5 years back and had his citizenship interview yesterday. The interviewer told him that he needs to check back with his supervisor and we will get an answer via mail. Does this mean he will be denied? We consulted with a lawyer who told us that we should be fine since we waited the 5 year period.

Really, it shouldn't, especially if prior to the 5 year statutory period. However, different districts treat DUIs differently when it comes to citizenship. It depends on where you live, but unless it was aggravated, it really shouldn't matter if it was more than 5 years ago.
