Question for Naturalization & Relocation.(merged)

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

To Whom may help,
 
Below are some of my questions regarding of my Naturalization Application.
 
My naturalization N400 application was submitted by October,2018. 
 
1) Currently, my N400 application was handled by San Francisco USCIS cause I am living in Hayward, CA now.
However, I will move to San Jose CA 95132 by next month February 2019.
Since the processing time will take longer in SF compare to San Jose office.
May I transfer my naturalization case to USCIS in San Jose instead of USCIS in SF after I moved to San Jose ?
Would that expedite my processing time ? Or Stay as is might be better.
 
2) Do I need to file address change to USCIS after I moved to new address ? If yes, How and When to file ?
 
3) Is the current government shutdown causing a delay at USCIS for my naturalization interview schedule ?
 
4) Did anyone know how many month do I have to wait and expect the schedule for interview based on current processing time in San Francisco ? 
 
5) Normally, How many month will take to received the USCIS notification for interview in San Francisco ? 
 
Thank you for anyone's help and response.

Thank you for anyone's help and response.

1) You have to notify the USCIS with your new address within 10 days of your move, regardless of what you think is faster processing time. You have to report you new address so you don't miss any important mail.

2)You need to file a change of address within 10 days of your move to the new address. you do that by filling form AR-11 online. If you track your case online, you'll find the link for changing the address.

3)The government shutdown has nothing to do with processing cases, plus the government is open for now.

4) I don't know about San Francisco, but normally it takes a year, give or take.

To Whom may help,

 

Below are some of my questions regarding of my Naturalization Application.

 

My naturalization N400 application was submitted by October,2018. 

Currently, my N400 application was handled by San Francisco USCIS because I am living in Hayward, CA. However, I will move to San Jose CA by March 2019.

 

Question:

 

Did anybody know if USCIS transfer my case from San Francisco to San Jose office.

Would my case being process based on the original naturalization filing date or they will process my case based on the date they have received my N-400 after transfer to San Jose office ?

 

Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Please help and advice if anyone knows.

 

Thank you,

Best Regards,

Trains.

Submit your change of address form as required by uscis when you move. As I recall, the form asks if you have any petitions in progress. I believe it will move FOs but that you retain the original priority date.

Hi SusieQQQ,

 

I haven't moved yet, so I haven't submit my AR-11 change address form.

That's why I am not sure how are they going to treat my case after moved.

So, you mean, while I am filing AR-11. I can indicate my original filing date to ensure I won't got start all over again ? Right ?

 

Thanks,

Train.

When you file AR-11, there is an option to specify your case# so that the address change is applied to your case as well! This way, they will know in what jurisdiction your case will fall and will be routed accordingly...
