  1. ATL Field office Filers?

    Thanks @Life_loveI did move from Memphis midway through the process so my case may just be isolated but not knowing when it will be resolved is a pain.
  2. ATL Field office Filers?

    I had my interview on February 14th and I'm still waiting to be in line for an oath ceremony. I've opened two cases online on the wait time. They have 120 days so I'm just waiting until then, then I'll do an infopass. It's a frustrating experience.
  3. Well I did do an infopass and the officer did let it slip about the three months and then I guess after the three months passes they put me in the interview to be scheduled Pile. So if in your case it doesn't apply you may be fine. My $0.02 do an infopass if time allows and ask, but on the surface you may be fine
  4. I moved and it impacted me tremendously, and yes it was like I was at the back of the line. I moved out of state so not sure if that made it worse, but knowing what I know now I wished I had delayed updating my address. I would tell you to wait until you move. My case is still pending and I file in Nov 2016, moved to Atlanta in July, got my interview here last month and I'm still waiting for the oath notification. Granted I filed paper application so not sure if online will be better.
  5. I had my interview today at the Atlanta Field Office. I got there at 8 for my 8:35 interview, traffic in Atlanta in the morning is a killer so strongly recommend leaving out early. There was an oath ceremony in the morning so lots of people which made for a long line before security. I got through security and was processed at the 1st floor reception at 8:15. Around 15 persons waiting for interviews. Called back at around 8:50. total interview took around 20 minutes. I had to provide evidence as I am filing by the three year rule. I provided our IRS Tax Transcripts for the last four years, a property deed for our home in Georgia, and our mortgage statements. The evidence that we submitted before she said wasn't needed, so she didn't need to see my marriage certificate or my previous divorce decree. She had me verify my name, birth date, address, workplace, citizenship and provide my drivers license. She took a picture, had me use the fingerprint reader. She had me read a statement. The Statement was "How many Senators do we have", then she asked me to write: "We have 100 Senators". Then she started reviewing my application and in parallel asking me the civics question, that kind of th me off as she asked one civic question then went ahead with asking me to confirm things on my application. The Questions asked were: What is the name of the national anthem How old do citizens have to be to vote for President What is the “rule of law” What major event happened on September 11, 2001, in the United States What ocean is on the West Coast of the United States Why does the flag have 13 stripes After we finished reviewing the application she had me sign and made copies of my ID and evidence. Then she said that a decision cannot yet be made about my application, that she would have to review my evidence and if all goes well then i'll get an oath letter. So the wait continues but at least now i don't have to study for anymore tests :-)

  7. N-400 questions

    I moved after Biometrics and getting in Line and I was impacted as my file had to move from one FO to another and that took time, then the Atlanta FO required me to be resident here for at least 90 days before they looked at my file. The sad thing about t was that just a few weeks after I moved I got my interview appointment at my previous FO (Memphis) in all i waited probably another six months between my interview appointment in Memphis (which they canceled, once i changed my address) and the interview here in Atlanta. So tell your friend to beware. I think if the move happens before they go in line for interview then they will be fine but if it looks like the move will happen right around when they should get an interview may be best to delay updating their address in the system. hope that helps

    So after waiting for a while I got my Atlanta office Naturalization interview letter. My interview is scheduled for Feb 14th. I know I'll be one of the last Nov 2016 filers but better late than never

    Congrats @spottymax to you and your wife. I'm going to note the need to have the passport pics, its a pity that they give that misleading information. Hopefully your oath ceremony is scheduled soon
  10. Thanks as usual @spottymax, all the best with your interview this week (your wife's interview, right?) It seems like N400 applications have been moving along with the exception of Miami which is severely behind
  11. I got my GE with my N400 pending, I actually wished I had gotten it right as I got my Green Card, I asked the Officer when I did my GE interview and all you have to do is do a walk up and then they can can switch to GE to your US passport when you become a citizen, its not another fee or anything. On a different note I used GE for the first when I got back from Jamaica last month and it was a breeze. I had to manually key in my Green Card number though but it was GE Kiosk and through in just a few minutes

    Thanks @vegasbound, unfortunately the Memphis uscis office realized that I moved and now Atlanta has jurisdiction so my interview was canceled and my case file was sent to the Atlanta office on the 14th, I have an infopass scheduled for the 29th at the Atlanta office if I don't get a new interview notice by then. It's all good nothing before the right time. 😀

    Congrats @vegasbound; @fluff5 and @atlantaGC, I'm happy for you all and wish you all only the best!!
  15. I also intend to bring photos, its better to have them and if not just use them for the passport
