I had my citizenship oath 2 weeks ago and have already received my passport last Wednesday. I would like to update SS with my new status and legal name, but after applying for passport I have not yet received back my certificate of naturalization. Is my new passport enough evidence for SS to update my status and name, or should I wait until I get my certificate of naturalization (and name change form) back?

arrowAny experience with DC drivers license and CR1?

My wife just got her DC driver's license a few weeks back - the expiration date seems incredibly arbitrary - About 16 months from issue, but prior to when we can even file for removal of conditions.  Was curious if this is common - as I can foresee it being a problem when the time comes to renew it and her conditions have not yet been removed.

Hey Folks ,

Has anybody had Juridical Oath ceremony in Tampa recently ?

What is the time frame between the interview and oath ? 
I had passed my interview on October 2nd at Tampa office.
The officer said the next available date for Judicial Oath is on October 23rd and they will try to schedule me for that date and said  the oath appointment letter should come in 2 weeks. Almost 3 weeks had passed, I have no  onlinestatus change  ,no email notification and no letter. 
I scheduled my infopass app, but the soonest I can get  in is on October 31st.
I am anxious I have international travel plans in less then 4 weeks. And  hope I can get everything done before that.

arrowI-601 Waiver of inadmissibility

My husband and I are currently working through the immigration process.  I am the US citizen and we were married in Latvia.  Janis came to the US in 2011 where we met and fell in love.  He traveled to the US on a tourist visa.  He left in July of 2013 before we were married to take care of his father who took ill and has since passed. I traveled to Latvia in Nov 2013 and we were married and started the immigration process.  At this time we have submitted all of our civil documents and application to the National Visa Center and waiting for information on next steps and interview etc.     I have been told that we will need to file a i-601 waiver but that I will not know this until the interview????  


I am wondering if there are ever instances when an overstay has occurred that the green card was approved without having to go through the waiver process.  We have been apart 14 months already and I was hoping not to have to go through a long waiver process.  


I have also been told it is best to retain a lawyer to help navigate the waiver process?  Thoughts?


I plan to travel to Latvia to join Janis for his interview if this helps our situation.  


Thanks for any information!

Hi we have just completed the online DS 260 and now need to send our supporting documents.  My husband is in Latvia and I am the US citizen.  I have his original birth certificate and our original marriage license from Latvia but am scared to send those for fear they will be lost.  Do I have to submit his originals and will I get them back?  I sent copies in our I-130 filing so was hoping I could do the same but not sure. 


Thank you in advance for any information!
