Will DUI affect us citizenship?
If there is evidence of a DUI conviction, the consular officers are likely to refer you to a recognized panel physician. The referral will be made if a single conviction occurred within the three years prior to the application, or if you have two or more arrests or convictions in your lifetime. You may also be examined to determine if you exhibit signs of alcoholism.

This context was taken out of context from a financial lawyer. There is no immigration law, statute, or regulation that specifically forbids individuals who have filed for ba…nkruptcy from applying for Naturalization. Additionally, there is no specific question on Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, inquiring into bankruptcy. However, there are two questions on the Form N-400 that may indirectly relate to bankruptcy. Those questions are found in Part 10, Section A, questions 4 and 5. Question 4 reads: "since becoming a lawful permanent resident, have you ever failed to file a required Federal, state, or local tax return?" and question 5 reads "do you owe any Federal, state or local taxes that are overdue." If you answer yes to either of these questions, you will need to provide a specific explanation as to why you answered yes and provide supporting documentation. It is important to note that just because a person files for bankruptcy does not necessarily mean that they failed to pay taxes or owe taxes that are overdue.. Another issue may be that the Service may view filing for bankruptcy as evidencing poor moral character, especially if such a filing occurs within the five year period immediately preceding the filing of the naturalization application. Pursuant to Immigration and Nationality Act section 324(b), the Naturalization process requires that you prove good moral character for a period of not less than five years immediately preceding the date of filing an application for naturalization and up to the time of admission to citizenship. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security evaluates claims of good moral character on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the immigration laws and the standards of the average citizen in the community of residence. 8 Code of Federal Regulations ("8 C.F.R.") Â§ 316.10(a)(2). Furthermore, bad acts, such as willfully failing or refusing to pay child support, evidences poor moral character. 8 C.F.R. Â§ 316.10(b)(3). As such, the Service, in its wide discretion, may deem filing for bankruptcy as evidencing poor moral character, depending on the circumstances.
You can stay abroad as long as you want to, as far as US laws are concerned.
No, financial problems and debt are not a bar to naturalization.There is a requirement of good moral character, but debts andforeclosures are not even asked about.

It depends on the state as restrictions vary from state to state onthe purchasing of a handgun. In Indiana, for example, the answer isnot a simple yes or no question. If it is… your first DUI and it wasnot a felony DUI, then you should be able to purchase a firearm.However, there might be a three day wait. I suggest you put yoursocial security number on the application. However, if you are onprobation, you aren't typically allowed to have a firearm at yourresidence in case probation police officers decide to come searchyour house. It's rare for it to happen for DUI people on probation,but it is usually on the paperwork. If you have more than one DUIwithin a certain timeframe (in Indiana it's 5yrs) it's an automaticfelony charge and you would need a lawyer to get that dropped to amisdemeanor.
