N-400 interview

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys;

:help::help: A co-worker of mine went for his citizenship interview in Charlotte this am and although the interviewer told him he passed the interview, he was given a letter to wait 6 months to a year for them to make a final decision about his citizenship. He had his biometrics done in April of 2007 and they went ahead and scheduled the interview. If there was something wrong, wouldn't it have been know from the biometrics?

When he asked for the reason, she told him she she could not discuss that with him. It is his case, why not? :angry::angry:

They also told him he would be able to travel to the Phillilines on his current LPR status. Is this advisable? :huh::huh:

Does anyone know what this could possible mean?

Did he get a paper like this?

If yes, then no worries....they give this paper away to everyone who don't have oath ceremony right after their interview....

I just had my interview on Jan 10th., passed it and got ther same paper. I will have my oath ceremony ina bout 2-3 months. Some Distric Offices have ceremonies same day, some 2 or 3 times a year.

About traveling on LPR....he is not official US Citizen before he gets paper after oath ceremony. So he can travel using his green card which he got with LPR status.

Hey Lexa;

I did not see the actual paper he received, because he was still in Charlotte when he called me at work. I work days and he works nights. I am gonna try to hook up with him one day when we switch shifts and get a clearer understanding of what he was given. I will also show he your scanned copy and find out what the real deal is. I think he might have a problem, because one of my co-workers who he spoke with before me (they are both Filipinos) kinda let me in on an issue that he had a domestic violence charge against him and he even was locked up, but the charges were dismissed. I do not know if this will or is affecting the outcome of his naturalization.

I will keep you guys up to date on the progress of this case :thumbs::thumbs:

Hey guys;

Just got in from work and wanted to report an update on this issue. I saw my co-worker today and he showed the document he received and the section that was checked off says, "USCIS will sent you a written decision about your application"

He told me he contacted a lawyer and was told that because he was arrested for domestic violence, it is grounds for deportation even though he was never convicted and the charges were dismissed.

I think he is up the river without a paddle. He claims he is gonna take a chance and go home in April anyway.

I wouldn't if I were him.

Wow...poor thing. I thought he was running into a problem a friend of mine had. He went for his interview and they told him that he would hear back from them when they scheduled his interview. Put it this way, he filed in September of 2004 and I was sworn in April 2006 and he heard nothing from them. All he kept hearing was they were still waiting on his background check. He has refiled the application so I hope he gets through this time.

Claire - so sorry to hear about your co-worker.

The same exact thing happened to me. I went for an interview in 2003. A very young female officer gave me an interview. She told me I passed the written and oral exam but she can't give me an approval yet. The department of homeland security will have to check on my background again. I must wait 2-3 months to hear something from them. I was so disappointed but there is nothing I can do about it beside went home and wait. The letter of approval finally came 2 months later. I was glad that the whole process was done and over with. I'm not complaining but just don't understand why they had to check my background (or any applicants' background) again since the already had the FBI checked on my fingerprints......

Claire...good luck to your friend. I think thing will be fine for him too at the end. He just have to be patient....and pray a lot....that's all
