Anyone here awaiting  interview at the Norfolk Va office? (N-400)

We had Biographics done in Sept 2016 and still waiting to hear from them about our interview

Can anyone relate their experience with this office? Any idea how long it might be before we get an interview?

It's going on 4 months and no word

Thanks for any insight you might lend

My case is from the Norfolk office. I am a August 2016 filer. There is yet another person here from the Norfolk office (May 2016) who is yet to receive their interview notice.

Not sure but I think the Norfolk office is moving slowly.

 

Have you considered adding your metrics to any of the progress reports .. If you filed in August with the August folks and if you filed in Sep with the Sep folks.

I've called them and they say they're working March filers

They sure cashed my check quick enough

At this pace we'll be lucky ti have citizenship by September

I don't see anyone on VJ timelines from Norfolk who received citizenship recently

 

 

 

UPDATE!!

Jan 18th received notice of appointment at Norfolk for testing on 24 Feb

Our NOA1 was Sept 1 and Biometrics was 29 Sept

Yahoo! Passed the exam!

Now just awaiting swearing in ceremony.

 

I advised her to say yes if they asked her if she wanted to change her name

At first she said yes but she let the interviewer change her mind and said no instead

 

Currently my wife uses her family name as her middle name

Is it now too late to legally make that her name?

And if it is too late what difference will it make?

Her Passport has her family name as her middle name, her driver license has it the same as her passport

Where will this go wrong if she just does nothing and lets things remain as is?

 

My friend advised me that when we were married ONLY her LAST name was legally changed not her middle name.
