Know your N-400 extremely well and the reason why you answered all the questions the way you did is the very first thing. And better to provide too much evidence than not enough. Be able to quickly snap back answers to the civics test, English test is nothing short of a joke. If a decision cannot be made at this time, ask politely why. My stepdaughter didn't do that, maybe that could have been cleared up then and there. If passed, politely ask about your oath ceremony and when you can expect to receive it.

Always some kind of bug up their butts, two years ago was a worthless utility bill for evidence, today is traffic violations or parking tickets and proof you paid for those. Neither was in any of their instructions or in the M-476 manual. But they can do anything they want to.

Was prepared for my wife, she asked me why I put her name on our electric bill, even after all the evidence she provided, was asked for that piece of worthless evidence, her IO's mouth dropped when she handed that over. Wasn't prepared for showing proof of small traffic violations for my stepdaughter, like an 86 buck fine and proof she paid that, that I feel started the whole thing. But then in her letter, was we don't need proof that fine was paid. Had to answer battery charges instead when she was 17 months old.

Trying to think of what they will come up with next, maybe you should bring your birth certificate even though they don't ask for it to prove you were not a member of the Nazi party in 1933. But if you were of legal age at the time, that will make you 99 years old today.

Just had my interview for my citizenship and i got approved, if you read the guide you should be fine. Goodluck, I will be having my oath taking on the 10th of this month.
