13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Did anyone experience Oath Ceremony being descheduled

 

I was supposed to have my oath ceremony on Feb 23rd, 2017. I checked my online status and see that its descheduled for unforeseen circumstances. I had my interview in Sanjose, CA

 

Please provide me information if anyone faced the same issue.

I've seen this happening frequently over the last few months. Could be due to variety of reasons. Best way to figure out why is an infopass appointment. Try walk in if you need an urgent assistance but they would probably re-schedule another one soon. Also check the upcoming oath ceremony dates on district court's website.

I am not sure but I just googled west campbell oath ceremonies and this website comes up http://www.cityofcampbell.com/calendar.aspx?CID=27 after the feb 23rd, the next one is on march 23rd. It does say however, they hold 3 different ceremonies throughout the day. Maybe yours was cancelled just to change time on feb 23rd.

Charmander,

 

Thanks for the information. 

I spoke to 2-tier IO officer and IO updated me that due to high volume of oath ceremonies on that day they had to cancel my oath. I need to wait for the next oath schedule.

 

Quick question: does not the case online status message say Approved and then scheduled for oath ceremony?

 

I asked IO does that mean I'm approved..he said until Oath is not done it is not officially approved....confused with status message & notice updates

I am not sure if they changed the online statuses with the new system but in the old system they never showed an "approved" status. He was right in the sense until you took the oath, you are not a US citizen but they wouldn't schedule oath ceremonies to people unless their files are approved. You are almost there, just wait for the re-scheduling.
