Interview & Oath Ceremony together?Possible?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband has applied for Naturalization. Finger printing is complete ? My questions are:

When will he be called for an interview?

I read some place that there are some offices where after the interview they ask if you want to take an Oath the same day, right there! Does anyone have a clue which offices are those that offer the Oath ceremony right after the interview?

Your help will be very much appreciated ?

Thanks and good luck on your processes !

It depends on your local office. It may also depend on how far away you live from the district office.

Average (nationally) processing time is about 5 months from priority date. Some are faster, some, not so much.

You can check your status online at USCIS.gov and enter your case number. It will tell you where you are in the process. You can also sign up for text or email alerts when status changes.

Depending on your local office, some of us sit for a long time in the, "in line for testing/interview" stage. I got through the first parts quickly. I'm now in line for testing (for just over 2 weeks)... based on what others going through my local office (Atlanta) are experiencing, I could be there for 2-3 months.

There are offices that offer both the Interview & Oath the same day, if you have been passed by the IO. But what matters is that whether your office offers it or not. Since, you have not mentioned your local office, its best you check with your local office where you are supposed to appear for an interview. Most likely, it may not be the case. In most cases, nowadays, interviews and Oaths are not conducted the same day. Good Luck.

It would be much easier if you told us which office your husband is assigned to.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I started reading this post

1) The fact that an office offers same day oath is not a guarantee you will have one.

2) You can use timelines from other people that went through your office to have an idea how long the average application will take. This is also not a guaranteed timeframe for your husband's case.

I would say nothing is guaranteed. My wife and I were both interviewed on same day in Philly DO. We both got the Approval letter, but none got the scheduled oath letter. Generally, for Philly, they schedule the oath right there and then. However, in our case they sent my wife an oath letter about 5 days after the interview while I am still waiting for any kind of update on my case online status.

In nutshell, if you know that your DO offers same day oath (by searching thru this forum for that office, or looking at cases processed at trackitt), then you have reason to be optimistic about getting the same day oath - But as a worst case, be prepared to expect oath to be scheduled later.

There is no option for same day oath. He will probably have oath ceremony in Los Angeles, which takes place every 3rd Wednesday of the month. Allow for at least 2 weeks between interview and oath ceremony, so if his interview is within 2 weeks before the next ceremony he will probably be sworn in the following month (I interviewed in Los Angeles on March 7th, oath March 24th).

SoCal? Then you are pretty much GUARANTEED there won't be same day for sure.

As matter of fact, it'll be the 3rd Wednesday each month for the previous month applicants who are approved, passed the test and was promptly put in the roaster for the oath.

Don't worry, you are already 99.99% done for the journey, the last .01% won't be long.

This is mostly correct though again I interviewed in LA on March 7th and was scheduled for ceremony on the 21st, which was the same month. So it's not impossible to have it be so close. But definitely no chance of same day oath.

Aw. That sucks! Well I hope the oath takes place soon.

Thanks all for the help

Much appreciated :)
