Moving while waiting for decision on N-400

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

 A little background of my story.

 

i applied for n-400 in July 2017 and had my interview in early October 2017. I passed the test and a decision could not be made. Never been arrested or anything. 

 

I have tried everything but i keep getting the generic emails and mails that "my case is still pending". i have contacted Ombudsman but they have a backlog and with the government shutdown, who knows when they'll get to it

 

My question is if i move to a different city, how is that gonna affect the whole process since i have already passed the interview. I'm trying to avoid more stupid delays on my case for who knows what

 

I've had to pass on several job opportunities in other cities and states because of my pending N-400 application

Changing addresses won't affect anything at this point.  Just make sure to file the AR-11 within 10 days of moving to update your address with USCIS.

As you said you already had the interview----if approved the oath ceremony would be in the new city.

The person who adjudicated your N400 (or their supervisor), yes.

In addition to filing the AR-11 normally, send a copy to the field office that has your file.  Include the usual identifying information.

 

I filed the AR-11 the day after I moved, and over 8 months later, USCIS still has my old address.  Luckily, I had no pending applications at the time of the move, and my filing this month will be with my new address, so hopefully it finally gets updated.

 

I’d hate for you to incur further delay or anything bc the change of address form is likely a bottom priority.  At least if you mail to the office that has your pending case, it might make it to your physical file.

 

Good luck!
