no oath ceremony letter after interview

Hi all,

I am new to this board - please bear with me while I give a brief history on my case.

Had my citizenship interview on Nov 14 2008 and passed it. The officer noted that in my birth certificate, my name was spelt differently than all my other records (my birth certificate is the only record where my name is spelt that way). I did have an affidavit with the correct name spelling , but he said that it is not enough. Anyways, he told me it is no big deal. I will just not be able to attend the oath cermony that day, but I will be sent a letter by mail within a month and then I will have to apply for change of name in front of a judge. It has been 3 months now and I have not received the letter yet.

I contacted the USCIS office this morning and they have initiated a service request and asked me to give it a months time. Has anyone been thru' a similar experience before? If so, can you please share ideas or advise? Even though I have initiated a service request, would it still be a good idea to visit with an office via INFOPASS ? Would that make a difference at all?

Thanks for any input/opinions.

If you remember the name of the interviewing officer - use that when you go for infopass - it should help get the answer to why the delay even after he told you it was OK. Good Luck

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I do remember the name of the officer and I will use that.

Update on my case.

I secured an INFOPASS and met the immigration officer this morning. She looked up the records and said that I have been scheduled for the oath ceremony next week.

That's good news then!! Congratulations! :dance: Just wait for your oath letter.

Great - there's hope for everyone - just try and remember the name of the interviewer (I wrote down his name after my wife's AOS and she was asking me what are you doing (I explained later that I could use it to ask about the case - we didn't have to)) but its a good idea in any case. Congratulations
