17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed based on 5 years rule. My interview was smooth and got recommended for approval on the spot. The online status changed to In line to be scheduled for oath ceremony 14 days ago. Today, I got a letter in the my mail Telling me to come for another interview with the same officer that approved my case. This letter did not show up in my USCIS account and my status did not change online from what it was 14 days ago

 

The letter states that:

Please come to the office shown below at the time and place indicated in connection to an official matter

DATE:

Office Location

Officer:

REASON FOR APPOINTMENT: Application for Naturalization (N400)

 

Please bring the following to the interview:

This letter, your current passport , any expired passports, and your PR card

Evidence of your previous marital union such as bank account statements, jointbills,bills in your name and in your spouse name, leases, last 3 years Tax Return, joint life/health/auto insurance policies, employment emergency contact paper work,pictures of you and your spouse, copies of phone conversions, copies of receipts for tripa and any other documentation you deem relevant to provideproof of your marital union

 

Please not I was married from 2013 till 2016 Divorced in 2016. Has anyone experienced this before? I am really worried.

Obviously something came up during your interview/upon further review and checks of your application after being recommended for approval...

 

Even when applying under the 5-year rule, questions about your marriage/previous marriage can be brought up----it's part of the overall N400 adjudication to ensure that your initial green card and ROC (if applicable) was approved correctly from the get-go before naturalization...hence why they may be asking for further evidence of your prior marriage so some fact-checking can be done.

 

All you can do is bring what they are asking for in the letter, and answer any marriage-related questions truthfully to the best of your recollection.

When is your appointment?

You were only married for 3 years? Did you have a 10 year GC when you applied for naturalization? I believe there's more to the story because this is very unusual. Do you recall any red flags in your application or the supporting docs that you submitted with it? Any criminal offenses/arrests/citations that you failed to disclose?

Yes, I had 10years GC before I was divorced and applied for naturalization. I was looking through my N400 application and I noticed an error in my dates where my previous residence lasted  from 2013 to 2016 but I must have mistakenly wrote 2013-2015. I believe this must have trigger the new interview. I plan to take all documentation to validate these dates.Lease, w2s, bank statements, IRS, drivers license copy.

I am not sure if I can still make these changes but it was an innocent error. I hope it does not turn to something bigger

Yeah that also mistake could be the reason, what about international travel?

I will guess that when you come for an interview, you will meet one slightly surprised USCIS officer. My bet is on a system error/duplicate letter (given that your status online still says you are in line to be scheduled for an oath). Barring that - perhaps a signature is missing on one of the documents, and you need to sign it in person.

 

I wouldn't necessarily think anything sinister (but I may be wrong, of course).

Quite possible! It could be an error on their end.

It could be an error on their end, however, I plan to rectify the dates where I made mistakes just to be safe. The letter does not look like a regular USCIS interview letter, Just a regular letter with USCIS letterhead.And just letting me know the officer to met . The same officer was my N400 interview officer.

Another thing I noticed was that on the day of the interview, The interviewer did not ask for my IRS tax return. This documentation was also not submitted online during the time I filled the N400.
