As you know, all interactions with the United States Of America are exercises in “ConFORMity”. Americans do love their forms. Hence, when the United States issues a new “form”, it’s important to pay close attention.
To the US Government, the issuance of a new Form is similar to a family experiencing the arrival of a new baby.
Forms, Culture And The Culture Of Forms
A form revision is an important moment in the United States. It’s often an opportunity to create new penalties or to increase old penalties.
Future “Form 4079ers” need to take careful note. What does this mean for future relinquishments?
Past And Future “Form 4079ers”
The DS-4079 has been an important part in the life journeys of those individuals, who were “Born In The USA”, but wanted a CLN (“Certificate Of Loss Of Nationality”), based on a back-dated relinquishment. Some past “Form 4079ers” have been successful and some not. Past “Form 4079ers” have learned that their freedom often depended on the presence or absence of one and only one word. Only “Form 4079ers” understand “The 50 Shades Of Intention”. Is expectation the same as intention? Does an understanding of the consequences equate to an intention? When is uttering the words “I renounce”, as part of a foreign naturalization, the same as the intention to relinquish US citizenship? When not? These are some of the most important questions of our age.

Are the old and new Form DS-4079s different in any significant way? If so, how?
