Recommended Posts

Hi all. I need some good advice regarding my case. I went for my interview for my scheduled n400. I applied using the 5 year rule. ( I was married to a us citizen before,  we divorced after having my greencard. Fast forward I applied for my n400 and got my interview this morning. Officer was not so polite, she even states that she good in denying cases if the person lies to her. I answered all her questions truthfully but it seems she always discredit my answers. It was like a removal of conditions interview.She even insisted that I had a name change before which I did not. Later during our conversation it was revealed that she made a mistake ,I had a son born out of marriage( used his mothers name , then after a few years I made it legal so my boy can use my last name.  Passed the civics and english test. Lastly she said she wont give me an approval today and also added that i will recieve a mail for their decision. How soon can I get the decision? Thanks.

Any reason for not being able to give the approval?

That's hard to say.  I could take a day if the officer just needs to check in with her boss (which would not be unusual).  It could also take weeks or even months if they feel the need to verify any of the evidence.  Fingers crossed that it's the former.

She did not put anything on the note she handed to me. She just circled  the uscis will mail me a letter and a decision cannot be made yet.

I don't have any knowledge whether this is true but applications based on divorce might involve a little more scrutiny. I would just be patient. It will probably be approved within a few weeks, if not sooner.

Hi there,

 

they circled it it because of your divorce situation. I am very sure they are going to dig and interview your ex spouse for the reason. It happened to me but luckily my ex spouse was cool and she answered all questions that benefit to my application. So be ready for that to happen. Talk to your ex spouse about that. It’s possible they will go to his/her house early in the morning.
