Filed Citizenship papers in Jan - taking ages

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I filed my paperwork in January but not much has happened so far. I got confirmation of my paperwork being received and then a letter in February saying I needed to bring my driving license to the interview and then nothing since then. Is this normal? I expected the process to move along quicker.

Thanks

Caroline

Here's a link to the last update by the January 2014 Filers... the ones in read have already become US citizens and several of the others have had their interviews.

If you haven't been finger-printed or been scheduled for an interview by now, I'd say that something isn't right.

If you haven't contacted USCIS, you should call them, or for more direct information, schedule an appointment and go in to talk to them about your status.

Did you do your biometics? Were you placed in line to be scheduled? Did you call after the 90 days? It's now 7 months since you filed. What is the progress status of your local office. Something isn't right. Also, in reviewing your profile, I noted that you have not participated or documented your progress with the January filers. This is one way in which other January filers would have noticed that nothing had happened or documented and would have given you some advice along the way. :time:.
