Interview+Oath in Centennial Colorado

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just thought I'd post a brief "review" of my experience of the interview and oath ceremony in Centennial, Colorado.

To set the scene, I had filed my N-400 in July 2010, and was on vacation in the UK when my Interview Letter arrived, with an Interview Date of November 2nd. I had enlisted into the Colorado Army National Guard on August 10th, and was scheduled to ship to training at Ft Benning, Georgia, on November 1st. I set up an Infopass Appointment for October 12th (a couple of days after I got back from the UK), and brought a copy of my orders/military ID etc. The Agent spoke to their Supervisor, and within a couple of minutes I was told that I could have my Citizenship expedited and receive it before I shipped to training. They also gave me a form to be filled out by my Commanding Officer, which confirmed my military service. I got that and arranged a 2nd Infopass to drop it off on October 14th.

I got an email from an Immigration Supervisor on October 18th, saying that I could either come in for my Interview on October 20th or 28th - I chose the 20th and have my Interview time at 1115. This made for a very long day as I worked a night shift that day from 0000-0800!

Anyhow, I arrived at the Officer with my wife and Mother-in-Law, and was seen about 1200 for the Interview. The Agent was very nice and courteous, and after I took the oath she actually started by giving me back some of the evidence I'd sent in because it was too big for my file! (These were some of the bank statements I'd sent which were over an inch thick). She then took my Green Card/Driver's Licence, and asked me the Civics questions - I got the first 6 right so we stopped then and carried on.

As far as I remember, the questions were the following:

- Who is the Chief Justice?

- How many are in the House of Representatives?

- How long to we elect someone to the House of Representatives for?

- Name one war the US fought in the 1900s

I don't remember the other 2 unfortunately.

After that we went through my packet, I signed off on a few pages, the other change made was reflecting my vacation back to the UK from Sept 28th-Oct 8th. After that she gave me the sheet of paper informing me I had passed the interview, and another one telling me to come back at 2pm that day for the Oath Ceremony! The entire thing took about 10 minutes or so!

After some lunch at My Favorite Muffin, we came back about 30 mins early and checked through security. We were then seated for about 20 mins, when they moved us up a floor, and the New Citizens went in through one door and family/friends through another. While we were waiting for a couple of latecomers, we watched a video about Immigrants, with various images and music. We then stood and sung the national anthem, after which the Supervisor read off a list of all the countries represented there, and we stood up as our country was called. We then said the Oath of Allegiance, and watched "Proud to be an American". After that we had a few words from the Supervisor about the rights and responsibilities of Citizenship, and he then went up to each of us individually and shook our hand when he gave us our Certificate of Naturalization.

We were then done, so spent the rest of the day celebrating and posting the pics/video on Facebook which led to a HUGE response from friends!

It's been an incredible "Visajourney"....this site has been so invaluable in helping me with information and support, and the founders are truly great people for setting it up, as well as all those who contribute with advice. I'll try to stop by every so often and see if there's anything I can help with, and as ever, anyone interested in working in Security/Law Enforcement/Military in the US is ALWAYS welcome to contact me so I can help out.

Thank you all once again, and GOD BLESS AMERICA! :dance:
