Four Months and twenty seven days is pretty darn good compared to over a year ago, add about another ten months to that and learn what stress you go through. But still not done if you are intending to stay here. Still have to deal with a foreign country and beg, borrow, bride, or steal to attempt to keep you passport current, and really can't go anywhere, legally, unless you are carrying that card, plus you only have ten days to tell the USCIS where you live, and have to very closely watch your time out of the country. And you have to pay the full burden of FICA taxes and do not receive full benefits, and have to pay the full burden on income taxes with no say on how our government is made, you quickly realize the only benefit of that ten year card is that you or your spouse can remain here legally. Plus if you lose it, another four hundred bucks out of your pocket.

That ten year card for us was relief, but certainly not done, just another step. When you read the N-400 instructions with lot's of confusion, more fees, more trips, you feel you are back a square one again after compiling all that same old evidence again. But when that is over, you can say you are done. Hopefully it will end this coming Wednesday for us when my wife attends the oath ceremony. Another day off from work plus a long trip, just to say I do, they don't make it easy, and that carries through to the very last second. Then you are done.

But I do share with your relief.
