90 Days Window! when to apply ?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So just to make sure i understand the  90 days window time and timeline correctly. here is my timeline:

1- we got married in July 2015

2- I got my conditional GC in Feb 22nd 2016

3- I filed for ROC in November 25th 2017 

 

And I think my 90 days window for N-400 is this November 22nd, 2018, am i correct ?

 

So far my application for ROC has moved to Seattle office since April 2017

And you do you think it would take 13 months from the time I apply to N-400 until i get an interview ? so probably around January 2020, correct ? 

 

Please advise on when to apply ? And if i applied online, I would upload supporting documents, payment and everything online. No more mailing. Correct ?

 

Thanks in advance :)

Thank you. What bout the rest of my questions ? :)

LOL. Sorry about that.

You can file for Citizenship as soon as 11/24/2018. Nobody can tell for sure if it's going to take 13 months, unfortunately. It really depends on how fast the local office processes the cases. I don't think anyone could tell you for sure. I would go ahead and apply when your window opens.

 

Correct, you can upload documents online, pay online etc.

wonderful. thank you! :)

 

As for applying while my ROC pending. I read so many confusing things. and it makes me hesitated because it may interfere with my current ROC and delay its processing time. I don't know if that's even accurate. My ultimate goal is to be a citizen soon, so i can visit my family back home. I won't be able to visit without being a citizen unfortunately.

From my understanding it will make USCIS adjudicate the I-751 faster once you apply for Citizenship and you may have both I-751 and N-400 interview together. 

 

I have a few friends from Portland, OR area that actually had the I-751 and N-400 interview together. As for my self, in two weeks I will be filling the I-751.

I wouldn't say they adjudicate the I-751 faster...but they often do adjudicate both together.

There may be exceptions for some oddball cases that are processing naturalization applications quicker than ROC (even with the 1+ year delay in filing).


Timelines:

Spoiler

AOS (I-485 + I-131 + I-765):

9/25/17: sent forms to Chicago

9/27/17: received by USCIS

10/4/17: NOA1 electronic notification received

10/10/17: NOA1 hard copy received. Social Security card being issued in married name (3rd attempt!)

10/14/17: Biometrics appointment notice received

10/25/17: Biometrics

1/2/18: EAD + AP approved (no website update)

1/5/18: EAD + AP mailed

1/8/18: EAD + AP approval notice hardcopies received

1/10/18: EAD + AP received

9/5/18: Interview scheduled notice

10/17/18: Interview

10/17/18: Approved

10/24/18: Green card produced

10/31/18: Green card received

 

K-1:

Spoiler

I-129F

12/1/17: sent

12/14/17: NOA1 hard copy received

3/10/17: RFE (IMB verification)

3/22/17: RFE response received

3/24/17: Approved!

3/30/17: NOA2 hard copy received

 

NVC

4/6/2017: Received

4/12/2017: Sent to Riyadh embassy

4/16/2017: Case received at Riyadh embassy

4/21/2017: Request case transfer to Manila, approved 4/24/2017

 

K-1

5/1/2017: Case received by Manila (1 week embassy transfer??? Lucky~)

I agree - it boils down to your local USCIS office processing time. In my local USCIS case Dallas has 26 months delay for processing N400. I think it'll better for me to wait for I-751 approval before filing N400.
