A male Permanent Resident who failed to register with the Selective Service before reaching age 26 still may be eligible to succeed with naturalization. In the naturalization petitioning process the applicant should supply a confirmation letter from the Selective Service showing that he now is too old to register, and he should supply testimony/documentary evidence that he failed to register solely because he was unaware of the legal requirement. It would be wise to work with an immigration attorney, especially for an application with this type of complication. Some immigration law firms, including mine, offer legal services on a "flat fee" basis so that a client will know the total expense from the very beginning, and a few immigration law firms, including mine, offer an initial consultation free of charge.
