Finally, my wife's Oath ceremony was today!

Recommended Posts

At last, my wife just had her oath ceremony in Oakland CA today :) It was a great event at a beautiful theater in downtown Oakland.

So glad we are done and all is left is the passport which we are not in a big hurry for.

As far as the timeline, we sent our N-400 application in around mid March 2010 and her oath was today. So total it took less than 4 months to process the N400 which is not bad at all.

Thanks to everyone on this forum for answering all our questions throughout our journey and I wish everyone the best of luck with theirs...

Hang in there!

Congratulations.

Besides the passport, remember that you need to update her SSN card (and info) as well as going to the DMV and get her info updated there as well. I don't know about you, but my State issues different driver's licenses to citizens and LPRs/non-immigrants.

Give it a week or so before doing so since the naturalization number will not be in the system this quickly.

Congratulations once again!!

I knew about SSN but was not aware that had to inform the DMV. I don't think licenses are different in CA but I will check. Thanks for the tip!
