Family member files tax return from WA state but filed N400 from NJ

Recommended Posts

I have a weird situation.

 

A family member filed last 5 years tax return (as GC holder) from state of WA.

 

A family member under 5 year rule filed for N400 in October 2018 from NJ

She has been living in NJ from May 2018 so she thought she met the 3 months residency requirement before filing.

 

She opened bank account and had health insurance from amerihealth NJ since June 2018.

 

She also had 6 month temporary mail forwarding(change of address) i.e from May to Nov. 2018/

 

She submitted all of if during online application and interview was scheduled so she thought everything she provided with application i.e. documents are enough.

 

But officer asked -- is NJ your permanent residence she said no WA is my permanent resident...I am in NJ temporarily and her permanent state is WA.

So officer said - he can not recommend and tick mark the other check box that says - we can not make decision yet about your application.

 

So now what will happen?

Since she already said her permanent state is WA ..she has to file a new application and spend new money?

She has to move back to WA from NJ and wait for another 3 months before she can apply again?

 

Or USCIS will allow the application to be transferred to WA?

UPDATE -  She found this in her online account. 

We transferred your application to another USCIS field office for review.

 

So assume they transferred it to WA field office. 
She can not see that document yet so can not say which field office.
