Bizarre, incomplete N-400 interview

Posted (edited)

So I recently had my N-400 interview with I-751 pending. So bizarre. There were questions about my GC date (long running issue with a USCIS error) and N-400 application date (applied online on the correct date, and presented evidence of that). Anyway:

  • No decision was made either way on my N-400 (or I-751)
  • No "decision-cannot-be-made" slip was issued
  • No RFE was issued
  • No rescheduling was done
  • The officer ended the interview without doing the civics or English tests, saying my case was complicated and he had a full schedule!

Any ideas as to what to do now?

Looks like their is an issue or concern with your status and how you obtained your green card. Was your spouse with you at the interview?

You didn't get the Civics test because your case can not move forward. Now you must wait until they conclude their investigation into whatever it is the issue.

 

Are you applying for citizenship under 3 year or 5 year rule?

3 year. Went through same thing with filing the ROC, and presented a letter from a previous USCIS investigation on my status. No mas.

Please give us little details about USCIS' first investigation about your case. We can advise or help without any information.

Sure. Green card date of admission was several months later than POE. I tried 2 I-90s to correct. Then when I filed ROC, USCIS first rejected it, then looked into my immigration history and acknowledged their error.

Acknowledged the error how? Issued a replacement green card with the correct date? Do you have anything in writing regarding the error?

Sounds like the OP has applied too early.

Yes. A letter from a USCIS director saying so, and affirming my correct date of admission. Because it was ROC time, they denied my I-90 (green card replacement) on a timing technicality.

That's clearly a concern, as was with the eventually approved case highlighted below, but I was proactive in showing proof of the date of filing at the interview. But at least the adjudicating officer in that case made a decision -- denial, which was eventually overturned; mine just gave up and left me suspended in limbo!

What stage have you reached in your ROC?

Maybe wait until you get details on your permanent green card and then follow up with your citizenship application status.

Even the ROC is up in the air. I tried to push the officer to decide that at the very least. Strangely he was evasive on that, declining to confirm if he had my ROC -- even though I could see it right there on his desk!
