I think you should go ahead and provide the FP and write your test. There is no reason for you to withdraw your application. Hopefully you are cleared by the court but even if you are not, you would still need to apply for citizenship eventually. So just get it done now and PRAY that you get out of this unscathed. No use being scared. Just prayHi Everyone, it will be really helpful if you could please point me in the right direction.
I had applied for citizenship in Aug 2019. Then I had made travel plans (to the USA) for Nov 10th. On that day I came to know that there was a case filed against me (I had no idea until then, and I had no criminal history from birth till then - the case is 'textual harassment') and I was not allowed to travel. On Nov 25th, I received the AOR. Now the case is in trial and I am 200% sure that this is a false allegation against me. Got to know from my lawyer as well that I will have clean record in few more weeks. Please note that I also updated IRCC about this case which I came to know after applying for the citizenship.
On Dec 28th, I received FP request, I assume the case was the reason. As I have 30 days to respond, I didn't do the FP since I was waiting for the case to be cleared, but the trial is taking longer than I thought (even though the opponent didn't appoint any lawyer). So I decided to withdraw the application. But few days ago, I received an email from IRCC for citizenship test on Feb 17th.
Now I am little confused as to what do I do. My first question is, I should still give FP right, even though I was also requested for citizenship test? I don't think I can safely assume that I will get the citizenship since I was asked for the test, even though the case is still in trial, can I?
Is it safe for me now to withdraw the application, and apply later? I can quote the case as the reason right?
I totally understand that this may not be the right place to ask such a question, but any help will be really helpful. The case is totally a false allegation and I am totally scared even though my lawyer assured me that I will come out of this clean.
Thank you so much in advance.
