Citzenship Interview decision pending - TWO A files!

Timeline

I went to the interview in Baltimore office. It all went well, I got aapproval letter and sent to the afternoon's oath ceramony. But just before the ceromony, one officer came and call my name and told me that I cannot take the oath because they found two A files for me, they need to consolidate the two files.

Does anyone have the same situation? How much longer we have wait for the result? is anything we can do to help them faster the process, such as request another A files from the USCIS Record Center?

Please post your experience and suggestions, it is greatly appreciated!

Thanks! But it seems hopeless. We can do nothing but wait!

Has anyone just gone through this? How long did it take? Thanks!

I wasn't even aware of these "A files" until you posted then read:

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/men...0000ecd190aRCRD

Wow, both hard and digital copies, they must really have a stack of paperwork on us. With further wonder why we keep on having to send in the same information in over and over again if they already have it.

Sounds like someone at the USCIS couldn't find your original file and started a second one, is that your fault? Anything to do with your name or do they store strictly by alien number? They you were told they are going to compile your files? I guess only USCIS can answer that question, did you ask them, how long?

I have no idea why there are multiple A files been created. She said (the officer) it happened when I first entered the country with J2 visa. She also said I should use the other A number when I apply the Geen Card 5 years ago. But how in the world that I know there is such a A file and a A number have already generated for me...

A number must be your Alien number, ha, hate abbreviations and acronyms for that reason as I work in too many different fields. Wasn't even aware they assigned an alien number with a visa so can see where confusion existed. Yeah there is a lot of stuff an alien or even a US citizen doesn't know, but hopefully they will resolve this issue ASAP, LOL. that means as soon as possible, laugh out loud.

My ex-wife had same situation about 10 years ago.

But she had documentaiton such as INS I-797 notice, and told them she only knew only one number.

So interview officer just processed the case without much delay.

If you have all back-up documentation that you only had one number so far,

you can argue that the other number should not influence this case unless it was issued earlier than the number you use.

In that case, it should be no problem with your residency requirement.

In my opinion, it is their internal issue, so it should not affect petitioner's case for N400 application.

Made Infopass appointment for next Monday. Hope to hear something positive.
