Approved yesterday at Jacksonville

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I had my citizenship stuff approved yesterday after passing all the tests. It was very straightforward - the whole thing took less than 10 minutes from entering the interview room through to my exit with a big smile on my face.

I was SO worried about the civics questions and had spent the last 2 weeks going over the 100 over and over again. I also listened to the audio of the questions the whole way to Jacksonville, so I could continue to cram on the journey. Glad that paid off though, as I went 6 for 6!

My interviewer said that the oath ceremony would probably in 2-3 months, and to look out for a letter letting me know the exact date. Almost almost almost there!

I wonder that also 2 or 3 mths wait for oath......whereas most feild offices and members get a oath within 2 months and sometimes well before the 2 months after the interveiw..

so wonder if this is a standard thing jax immigration office say to all aplicants after interveiw..

or is it cas jax feild office is much slower than most of the country as per norm i find..:bonk:

I was starting to wonder the same-thing about the oath letter taking 2-3 months. I would imagine that the USCIS JAX office is just very slow in process the letters, and getting them sent out.

I've been pretty much OK with my dealings with Jacksonville since I arrived in the states. My lifting on conditions wait wasn't too bad, and the interview was great. This time around my wait from application to interview was only 2 and half months, so again no real complaints about the office.

But overall? My big complaint is having to drive there to do fingerprints. I live in Tallahassee. That's a 5 hour round trip that I've had to make twice, when they already have my fingerprints from my original K-1. (Yes I know they expire, but come on... really? My fingers don't fall off after a year, why do the prints expire, other than its a good reason to charge me more money for another processing date?)

The most horrible part of this whole process has been the K-1. Almost 10 months apart waiting for the system to grind its way through to our paperwork. (And we got off LIGHT - I feel so bad for people who wait over a year and more.)
