N-400 Interview Experience, Los Angeles, March 2015 [split topic]

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just want to share my N400 interview today at the Los Angeles USCIS office. Got there at 6:00am for 7:15 scheduled interview. There was already a short line. Doors opened at 7:00am, got thru security check at 7:10 and finally at the designated office by 7:15am. I was called at 7:45. IO was Asian guy. He seemed serious and talked fast but he was actually nice. After he swore me in, asked me to sit diwn. He asked for my GC , DL and additional joint docs I want to submit since I filed under 3yr rule, marriage to a USC. Asked for all my passports, current & expired, husband's passport, original marriage contract & divorce decree. He examined them closely then started asking questions based on my N400 applic form. He went thru all pages & wrote down notes on each page. Then he asked if Im ready for the test and I said yes. Asked me : name one branch of gov't; what does the president's cabinet do; how many years do we elect a senator; who is in charge if President & VP can no no longer serve, how many justices in the Supreme Court; when do we celebrate Independence Day. I forgot the 6th question. Then he asked me to read a simple question then to write down the answer (which he stated) to that question. After this, he said I passed the interview and test & he gave me

Form N-652 Naturalization Interview Results. He explained that I should wait for the Oath notice anywhere from 30-90 days and gave some information on the Oath ceremony. I was done in 20 minutes. Overall, it was easier than I thought . As long as you studied for the civics test and are honest in your application & interview, there's nothing to worry about.

My husband came with me to my N400 interview but when my name was called, he tried to go with me inside the IO's office but he was told only the applicant (myself) is allowed inside and if my husband will be needed during the interview, the IO will just call on him. My interview went smoothly and my husband was not called at all.

Good luck to you !
