Waiting for Oath Taking - Can it be facilitate for family emergencies

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I took my US citizenship interviewed and passed it on O3-03-2010 at Greer, SC. I relayed to the USCIS officer that my Dad is on his last stages of Parkinson's and if there is a way that I can get a sooner oath taking ceremony. The officer said, to wait for two weeks and go directly to the USCIS Charleston office and try to bring some proofs for the medical condition and that I have to do it very early in the morning. Charleston is like 5 hours drive away from our home.

Anyway, my Dad is not getting better and I'm getting anxious to see him. I do not have anymore my old passport and to get one from the Philippine Embassy is even more time consuming and tedious.

Is there any one with family emergency situations?

Sorry to hear about your father's situation.

You won't be able to travel internationally without a passport (obviously) - I'd suggest doing what they said (I'm assuming they suggested an infopass appointment and the nearest location is Charleston). Get your proof of your father's medical condition.
