arrowInterview Experience at Omaha Field Office

I filed N-400 on September 8th under the 5 year rule. My interview date finally arrived last Thursday December 11th. I had freaked out about a month ago when I got a letter from USCIS rescheduling my original date from Dec 4th.


Anyway,  my time was 8.25am, I pulled into the parking lot at 7.45am and completed all check-In formalities by 8.05am and waited in the reception area.  I was called in by this gorgeous I/O at approximately 8.35am, and she led me to her office.


She asked me to raise my right hand and swore to an oath.


She walked me through my N-400 form, and confirmed all the info I completed.  The only eventful item was when she asked if I still work for my employer (I was laid off months after filing), I said no and I'm currently not working.  She did not skip a beat, and just noted/wrote "Unemployed" on the form (I was relieved, because this is one part that I was worried about) and moved on to other questions.


Next, she asked me to read "WHO IS OUR NATION'S FOUNDING FATHER" from a piece of paper and to write "GEORGE WASHINGTON IS THE FATHER OF OUR NATION".


Next, she asked the following civics questions:


What is one right or freedom from the first Amendment

Who is in charge of the executive branch

How many justices are on the Supreme Court

Describe one amendment to the constitution about who can vote

What is one reason colonists came to America

During the Cold War, what was the main concern of the United States


I correctly answered all the questions, and after a moment typing on the computer, she told me I passed the test and she is approving my application.  She handed me a generic letter about result of the interview, and checked both the civics pass and "Congratulations......" boxes.


I was so happy and told her it was the happiest day of my life (a little exaggeration there), then she dropped the shocker "I will make it even better" she said. 

She told me there was a swearing in ceremony later that day at the field office and she can add me to the schedule and be sworn in same day.  I was ecstatic, she joked if I wanted to think about it, off course I accepted. The ceremony was scheduled for 2.00pm and she asked me to go home and bring my family for the ceremony.  


I returned later and had a most beautiful and solemn ceremony with my family.


The whole Naturalization process was smooth, my I/O was super pleasant. I think this compensates for my Green Card experience, which at best could be described as forgettable!!!



I am so proud to be an American!!!

My Petitioner naturalized this year and i just finished completing my DS 260 form online i have also sent my Manilla files to NVC.

All my online forms are complete.


My Visa status online still says F2B


My Priority date is Mar 21 2008 and according to the Visa Bulletin my date would become current by January 2015.


Since my petitioner naturalized we were not aware of sending a letter to change my status. However i got enlightened by the stories here.


I would like to opt-out of automatic conversion and retain my F2B status and priority date since F2B is going to be current by January 2015.


Who do i send this letter to?

What address?


Also is it advisable to let NVC be aware that my petitioner has naturalised.

arrowYears of Lease Requirement

Hello All,


I'm due for removal of conditions in February and wanted to clarify the joint lease requirement. I have the rental agreements jointly signed by my wife (USC) and I for 2013 and 2014. However, for 2015 (please note that our lease renewal is due every December) our apartment complex stated that we don't need to sign a new agreement since we intend to continue our contract for 2015 and so it's going to be an automatic renewal without the need for a new documentation.


Here are my questions - (1) for the purpose of ROC, would the 2013 and 2014 rental agreements be sufficient without risking an RFE or do I need to insist that our apartment allow us sign a new agreement?


(2) Alternatively, can I simply ask my apartment complex to provide us with a renewal letter (signed and/notarized) stating the 2015 lease?


Thanks for your suggestions and advice.

Just tired of being patient! I'm missing my husband so much, anyone know the wait time it will take for a case to complete? I was told 60 days, is there a possibility it can be shorter?
