1/05/08 - N-400 sent to NSC
1/10/08 - NSC cashes check
1/16/08 - Received NOA1 for N-400. Notice (NOA1) states we should expect to be notified within 450 days. Glad that fee increase gave us the results the USCIS promised!
5/8/08 - FINALLY received biometrics notice for 5/20/08. The USCIS website still does not acknowledge our service center number though and I cannot track any touches or updates. We have also found out that we cannot use the 800 number because it asks for our service center number and since it isn't registered, it hangs up on us.
5/20/08 - Biometrics completed at Denver. In and out in 15 minutes.
6/6/08 - Received interview letter today for Friday, July 11, 2008 @ 10:30am in Denver.
7/11/08 - Marilyn has her interview. Lasts for 17 minutes and she passes with flying colors. 10 for 10 on the questions.
