Oath ceremony is coming next week!

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,

Finally I got to say goodbye to USCIS once and for all!

I received my oath ceremony letter yesterday and the event is on next Wednesday!

I'm sort of new here, yet ever since my journey started back to 2006, me and my Huby came here whenever we have problems, it's such a nice place and now I'd like to share with you my timeline and experience! It's quite a smooth journey and by the way, I did not take another biometrics before my N-400 Interview, so for those who may have the same situation as me, just relax and it may save you a big trip! However, they still charge you even you are not required to take it...

The interview process is super easy, just similar to what the others have posted here. Questions I can still remember:

1. Who wrote the Declaration of Independence.

2. what is the political party of the president right now

3. what are the two political party in the U.S.

4. Name 3 original states

5. Name one state boarders Mexico

6. can't recall...

Okay, hope my experience helps and wish all of you good luck!

My timeline:

Nov.2006: came to U.S on K1

Dec.2006: getting married

Jan.2007: apply for adjustment

Feb-March/2007: biometrics & Interview

April.2007: received 2-yr PR Card

Jan.2009: apply for 10-yr Green Card

Feb.2009: Biometrics

April.2009: 10-yr PR Card mailed to me

Jan.2010: apply for N-400 based on 3-yr requirement

Feb-Mar.2010: received NOA & Interview Appointment Letter

April/2010: Interview passed

Received Oath Letter

May.5,2010: Oath Ceremony

Congratulations!!

My boys passed their tests on March 30th and we are still waiting for the letter that tells us when the Oath Ceremony is...we were told at the interview that it would be 2-4 weeks, as of tomorrow, it will be 5.....anyway, each case is individual and I guess we are just some of the few that this process is taking more time with. We applied in October, interview in March and now......still waiting!

Anyway, congratulations once again!! Enjoy the next chapter of your lives!

Cheers!

Cindy

Hi Cindy, yeah I guess waiting time mostly depends on the process time of the Office you applied with, and waiting seems longer when you count on days. My interview is on 4/6 and the lady told me I'd get my letter around 5/4, and the letter did arrive on 5/5. Another reason that may cause the delay is they kind of intentionally do this, because on my letter it says there'll be around 1,300 ppl attending the ceremony, so the office in your area may wait until a specific number is reached to send you the letter. So.. relax.. it's coming soon!

Hi Callie, I ended up calling the courthouse where the ceremonies take place (I'm impatient! LOL) to find out when the next one is scheduled...July 16th! So I am assuming that's when it will be...in the meantime I'm going on vacation! LOL

Cheers!

Cindy
