U.S. Immigration Law requires that any immigrant interested in obtaining U.S. citizenship through naturalization begin the application process with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) by filing Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, at a USCIS designated address covering the applicant's geographic region. In an effort to better assist immigrants throughout the naturalization process, USCIS has created Application Support Centers in various states. These USCIS Support Centers provide a convenient location for applicants to get their fingerprints taken, complete the naturalization test, and even take their oath of citizenship.

Mail a signed written request to the USCIS Lockbox Facility where your Form N-400 was originally filed, asking that your application for U.S. citizenship be canceled. Find the appropriate mailing address at the USCIS web address in References.
Be sure to include in the cancellation request your alien registration number found on your permanent resident card. You should also include your N-400 case number; you can find your case number from previous USCIS notices regarding your case.
