Processing time to oath ceremony

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I had my naturalization interview on 4-10-12 and at the end I got the N-652 with "Decision cannot yet be made" and no explanation why (the IO was very unfriendly).

I was wondering If anyone can give me an advice on when my oath will be. The reason I am asking is I know there is an oath ceremony date on May 24th. And I have to be out of the country from May 11 to May 28.

How long does it usually take for the DO to approve case and schedule an oath date?

I called yesterday and they told me my case has t been approved yet.

Any ideas, should I travel or should I stay?

Did you file based on 3 or 5 year residency? Was your interview before your 3/5 year anniversary?

How long it takes depends very much on your local office. In my case, I got my oath letter less than a week before my oath date, so yes, it is possible you'd get it after you leave the country.

Decision can not be made can be for many many reasons, to name some of them:

1: Too many trips outside the country

2: FBI did not clear your finger-prints yet(it happened before)

3: You were charged before and they want to make sure all what you gave them from documents concern any charges are correct(seen it before)

4: Checking the validity of your marriage(if your application is marriage based)

5: Interviewer did not have time to go through specific information based on your application(as I said verifying trips durations, divorce decrees, charges, etc), and do not be surprised because it happens(I read it in some cases).

Nothing to be worried about, but definitly some more information relating to your application might help us narrowing down what might be the reason.

Needless to say, that if none of what I mentioned apply to you up there, most likely you will receive your oath letter soon, otherwise it might be an RFE or so.

Give us more info please.

Thanks guys!

So my application is based on 5yrs, I was married for a US citizen, but we got divorced 2 1/2 years ago.

I have mo tickets, no arrests, the IO said no documents are missing. But she told me only "be patient". I called the 800 number and the guy told me that it may take 1-2 months, but he can't tell for sure.

I am hoping I don't get the May 24th oath date as I will be out of the country.

Is there any way to know?

Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing until you get your oath letter. The good thing with my interview, it was 3 weeks before my 5-yr anniversary, the IO asked me if we had any plans of traveling outside the US, and we did. I gave her the dates and she said it's easier for everyone if they schedule our oath date when we are home. It wasn't an issue since I know the next one is a few days after we got back from our vacation. The letter arrived before we left for our 7-night cruise so it worked perfectly!
