Not sure if I should leave it blank or answer no

I'm filling out N 400 form on my own, but I'm not sure if I should leave the space blank or answer NO to questions that don't apply to me....for example they ask how many children do I have.....but I have no children....I need HELP

I think leaving dash on the space would be fine.

Some forms allow you to put N/A .. .which means "Not Applicable" to the questions that are not applicable in your instance. But do check the guidelines of the form being filled in, either in the handbook (if there is one) or call the bureau for which the form is intended.

Generally you should answer something to any question on any form you fill out (unless there is a solid reason not to). Even if it's dna (does not apply) or na (not applicable).

Leaving an answer blank leaves the person reading it in limbo. They don't know if it doesn't apply to you, you missed it, or you intentionally left it blank for some reason.

This form asks how many children you have. Does leaving it blank mean you have no children, that you missed the question (for whatever reason), or you don't want them to know. Chances are they may follow-up to get an answer to that question just so they can put 'none' in that space.

People that have jobs looking at forms like this know that people, in general, don't want to lie but may also not want them to know the answer to the question so they just leave it blank.

It's possible to have the form delayed or denied.

If you have no children, the logical answer would be zero (0).

If a question doesn't apply, it's acceptable to write N/A in The blank

(not applicable)
