Questions about taking the citizenship test in different state

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a questions guys. I am scheduled for citizenship interview on the 8th of June. However, I am moving on the 22nd of this month to Oklahoma. That's like over 2 weeks to my interview date. I really can't stay and wait for my interview date because of financial hardships. So my questions are:

If I move and reschedule my interview to Oklahoma will they make me wait 90 days and start the N400 process again? Has anyone experience like this situation before?

Please please help me!

Thank you!

The 90 day rule applies to the 90 days before you file your application So this should not be an issue. You will need to write them a letter and explain that you cannot attend your interview. Once you move, you'll have to change your address with USCIS and wait for your file to be transferred to your new office and your new interview to be scheduled. Should expect that this will take several months and there will be opportunities for your file to be misplaced Many people in similar situations I have no problems other than the delay, but others end up with lost files or never have their initial interviews canceled even though they requested that.

I would strongly suggest that you borrow some money or otherwise find a way to overcome your financial situation and attend your interview at your current location. Getting your oath scheduled at your new address is going to be difficult enough, rescheduling the interview at this point is not a great idea.

I don't think this is possible he'll be asked to confirm the information on his application during the interview. When he tells them that he has moved to different states and that his address has changed, they will deny his application in all likelihood. Edited by JimmyHou

Thank you for the response. I guess I will just stay for the interview and get the oath schedule to Oklahoma. I also called the USCIS in my area and he told me that I can ask the IO if I can take the same day oath since the reason of me moving is because of my husband PCS order. ( No we are not military anymore, husband is retired and now working for Military as civil service).

Just having to stay in the hotel with kids and dogs will be really difficult for me cause my husband already left for Oklahoma.
