I got a yellow letter from USCIS yesterday, requesting me to bring my state-issued driver's license or state-issued photo identification card to the naturalization interview. There is no interview date in the letter! I wonder if anybody had this similar request, and what it is about? And how long should I expect for an interview letter?

Thanks

This is a case status review letter. You will be receiving your actual interview letter that includes the interview date/time/location in a separate letter. It's hard to guess at how long it will take to get the interview letter, maybe a few weeks or even a month or longer. It depends on your particular office and it varies case by case.

Wonder what brain started this? To get that drivers' license or state ID card, in my state they want to see your green card as the key form of identification, so that is only a secondary form of identification.

For my wife, we had to supply all kinds of proof as to who she was to the USCIS, birth certificate, passport, medical, and work records, bank accounts, credit cards, and fortunately she worked for an American based company that helped considerably, plus I had to prove who I was with our marriage certificate that also required a lot of proof as to who we were to get in our state just to get her that green card. And all translated into English.

Ha, I wondered what would happen if I met a girl living in the jungle without all that paperwork to back her up. So now they want a state backup based on the USCIS and the FBI? Sounds crazy, but one thing for sure, after all this, you are not even sure who you are. Then with all that additional proof they want for the N-400, did they ever think on what you went through even to get that green card? Or maybe, they just don't think.

haha. I agree. And this was with the same logic, we neglected to include the documents mentioned in the separate documents checklist for N-400 (my wife just got her permanent card a month or two ago), plus it was an oversight. Now we did get our first NOA, but it does not say anything about RFE - but I expect that shortly, if not having to bring the mentioned documents again at the interview.

Their latest bug is utility bills, a friend ahead of us was called in for that, so I called my utility companies and say to add my wife's first name to our bill, could have given any name, absolutely no proof was required, could have done that while being single. But the USCIS wants that and our friend had to make an extra six hundred mile trip to bring that in plus the delays.

And why another marriage certificate, read on ours, a $10,000 fine for making copies, so had to send off eight bucks for a certified copy, and we didn't get that until we could prove we were legal to marry with all of our divorce papers, already did that for the AOS and the I-751, but again for the N-400.

Exactly where does the USCIS think my wife got her ten year card? Out of a Cracker Jack box?

At my wife's interview, had both me and a wallet full of ID cards, her IO didn't want to see that, just a piece of paper I could have made up on my computer with both our names on it. USCIS is ran by idiots, but you don't dare tell them that, they carry a very strong whip.

I don't think so.... I didn't get yellow letter just an interview letter stating the date and time, what are the documents needed to bring, etc.. I think they send it randomly. Sometimes USCIS have different rule in every service center.

After waiting over two months from the receipt of the N-400 with no further response from USCIS, my wife sent a letter to NBC using the address on the N-400. She stated that she was worried that a biometric appointment letter had been sent to her and lost in the mail. Not a week later, she got the yellow letter! So, hopefully, she'll get an interview letter soon.

We don't mind about the repetitive requests for the same evidence; the difficulties were in getting everything that they wanted for the green card. Now that we have it all, it's just a question of making multiple copies.
