Help!! Oath Ceremony De-schedule

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed my N-400 Feb. 22, 2018. 

 

I did my biometrics and interview.

 

Feb. 19, 2019, I received a notice for Oath Ceremony that was scheduled for March.

 

Feb. 21, 2019, I received another notice for De-schedule Oath Ceremony. 

 

I waited....months later havent received anything.

 

I called on July for an update, they check the processing time and it was Outside Normal Processing Time. They submitted a service request and I got a letter back from them it says, “ Your application for Naturalization is pending Officer Review. We regret that we are not able to give you a timeframe for when we will complete the review of your application. 

 

What should I do?

Incorrect. By law, USCIS has 120 days after the interview to issue a final decision on naturalization applications. Since that time has passed, OP can (and should):

 

- Write a letter, sent via certified mail, to the case officer/field office asking for a speedy decision;

- Book an infopass appointment to discuss the application in person;

- Ask her/his Congressional rep for case follow-up with USCIS;

- Escalate the matter to the CIS Ombudsman; and

- If all the above fail within a reasonable time, file a 1447(b) petition for a naturalization hearing with the US district court where s/he resides, asking a federal judge to decide the citizenship application, or (more likely) order USCIS to do so in a limited time.

I am not wrong. Your suggestion is what “contact them” means in my post. Nothing can be done personally other than that and wait.

Your post did not come across as helpful at all. ‘May be contact them again’ - who? It’s time to contact other people now!
