We are planning to go to Argentina in January or February of next year.... should we wait until we come back or can we travel at the time the process is on going?

You can travel, just keep your dates open though in case you get called in for the interview or oath during your trip. Might be better just to wait till when you get back, but if you can be flexible with your flights and trip then might not hurt to apply now and hope that maybe you can get it done before you leave. If not, just be prepared to switch dates of your trip with short notice so you can be present for the interview and/or oath...

Wait until you are back from your trip so that you won't have to worry about the interview appointment. Oh . . . and now that he's all grown up, let him do his own N-400. It's his naturalization, not yours. He's the petitioner, not you.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
