arrowQuestions re Form N-400

Hi, all!


I'm planning to apply for Naturalization in August, and was hoping someone could help me with a few questions regarding Form N-400:


Part 2. Information about you. #2 Your name EXACTLY as it appears on your Permanent Resident card. 

My middle name doesn't appear fully on my green card, just the first letter. But I'm assuming I should still write out my middle name, not just a letter?


Part 7. Information about your employment.

I've been a homemaker for the last five years. I'm thinking I'll put N/A in employer, Homemaker as occupation, and no need to supply address? (same as home address, obviously)


Part 8. Time outside the US.

Now I know this is a bit silly, but how did you count the days? Did you include the day of return? (i.e. 10/21-10/25 as 4 or 5 days)


Also, with regards to the passport style photo... Is this the photo that will actually end up in my passport? (I'm a bit vain and have had my share of horrific passport photos so would want to make sure this is a good one...  ;)


Thanks in advance for any help! 


By the way, anyone else preparing to apply in August?

arrowRescheduled interview successfully

Hi all!

I just wanted to share some information about rescheduling the AOS interview. I read a lot of old posts on this forum and everyone really seemed to discourage trying to reschedule. Since people rarely write when things go well, I thought I'd share what I did.


About a month before the scheduled interview I sent a letter requesting to reschedule our interview to the local USCIS office. I explained my reasons (back home in Sweden, scheduled to work and that having to reschedule would result in loss of wages and airfare). I attached my employment contract with english translation and a copy of the interview notice.


About a week later I received a letter from the field office director at our local USCIS office that our request had been granted. The letter had two boxes: 1. "The above referenced interview will be rescheduled" and 2. "Your request to schedule has been denied for failure to demonstrate good cause." Which leads me to believe that attaching some kind of "proof" is important. Obviously it's almost impossible to know what they deem to be a "good cause" but if you want to take the chance/risk I think it's worth a try.


I sent my letter about a month before the scheduled interview and received the response from the local office a week later, however, USCIS did not update my case status and send a notice about the rescheduled interview until yesterday! So it took a while for NBC to respond as well. I was planning to call if I didn't receive a response from the local office, but since that came so quick I didn't worry about it!


I'm waiting for a new interview but requested it to not be before Sep. 1 so we may be waiting a while! It doesn't bother me though since I have the AP and EAD card.



I deemed it to be worth to take the chance/risk to reschedule despite the horror stories and it worked, however, I think everyone should weigh their options carefully. Still read the horror stories (as well as the positive ones!) -- then decide!


Good luck!  :thumbs:

Hi all!


 So we spoke to NVC yesterday, they said that they did receive our case!


When we asked them for the NVC case number they said that it will all be mailed to us within 2-3 weeks.


We also asked them to add our email into the system, but again he said that all the details will be mailed in 2-3 weeks..


Did this happen to anyone else?


Should I call them back on Monday and ask again? I figured, the sooner I get the case number, and give them our email the sooner I can pay for AoS and the DS-261?

I'm about to apply for a J-1 visa but I can't get anywhere! I have tried to register a new user using this link: (I'm Swedish)


So I enter all my info (and captcha) CORRECTLY, but everytime I get this message in a red box:

Error: Your request cannot be processed at this time. The site administrator has been alerted.


I've tried multiple emails, multiple browsers and even two diffrent computers and I still get this message every time.

Tried googleing the problem but can't seem to find any answers to what the problem is. Can anyone please help? I really need to get this done by today!

Hi all,
I got a quick question to ask you regarding case completion after the IV and AOS package is sent to NVC, has anybody experienced more then 30 business day waiting time? If so, how long did you have to wait for?

My IV and AOS packages was received by NVC on the 13th of June. 30 days should be on Monday next week, I have read from others that NVC is backloged, I'm just nervous that it could take longer then 30 days..
