At which point is the facts of your case taken into consideration?

Hi everyone,

I have a general question on the n400 process. I am wondering at which stages checks are made on your application for eligibility, and at which points throughout the process can you possibly be denied at?

For example, I filed at the Vermont Sevice Center, I received an email that my case had been accepted and forwarded to National Benefits Center.

Did the VSC initially look at the facts of my application, accept it and send it to NBC? or is this a straight off sent away.

Do the NBC look at the facts of the case and on that basis forward to the Field Office? can the NBC approve or deny applications at this stage alone?

I'm just curious as to which points are crucial "passing" points in the naturalisation timeline.

Many thanks!

I will try to answer your question based on my knowledge.

- Once your application is received , the lockbox facility will check your form that it's signed and has the correct fee, and also you filed through the right eligilblty window.

- They will send the application to NBC where they will book you for Bio appointment. After receiving the background check, they will take a look at your case and they will leave a not for the field office adjudication officer with their findings, for example [ meet all the requirement for naturalization]

- Once, your case is received by the field office, the officer who handles your case will review your case and write a note on potential issues that he/she wants to clarify during the interview. Once you successfully complete the interview, your application might be reviewed by a supervisor for final approval.

So, in case of denial, the field office is the one who can deny your case because they are the one who has jurisdiction over your case. But , the case can be rejected by the lockbox if you missed to sign the form or you sent the wrong fee .. etc.

That's really kind of you for taking the time to explain that all out, thank you.

So just to clarify, the returned app could be from the lock box or service centre - but an actual denial would only come from the field office?

I have filed under section 319(b) and it's a difficult one as I am currently in the UK - so I fly over for the interview. It would be so much easier if at some point before that they would look at the application and say 'ok that company is or isn't eligible etc' - it's v tricky!

Thank you again so very much- much appreciated!

In your case you should be able to contact USCIS in London with your case number and perhaps they can look into this for you. Their contact info: http://www.uscis.gov/about-us/find-uscis-office/international-offices/united-kingdom-london-field-office
