In the worst case, you may be subjected to immediate removal from the United States, and you may also jeopardize your eligibility to get a future visa or permanent residence. For children under 14 years of age, their legal guardian or parents will be responsible, in case of failure to report. When filing the AR-11 application form, you need to be very cautious and attentive. Make sure to submit valid information, including the present address, alien registration number, citizenship details, most recent address, signature, and date of birth.
