Hello everyone,

 

i hope someone can shed some light or help me to make a decision.

 

i have a travel plan to visit my family specially my father who is very sick, i did not travel for the last 2 and half years, i have my new baby which is also their only and first grandchild, he wish so much and fear something might happen to him before seeing his grandson plus i am so afraid not to travel and something happen to him. I was planning to travel beginning on March, now i received my interview for the citizenship to be on March 17. 
 

i dont know what to do. I can to to the interview but i know the ceremony takes up to 120 days. I am in Virginia  and will be in Norfolk office, and according at least to one person here on the forum there was no oath ceremony for him same day, looks like its more for states like California.

 

if i postponed my ceremony how long it takes to reschedule, i dont mind taking longer, actually i hope it takes long time so it gives me time to travel and come back. I know i can reschedule max 2 times and if i missed second time my application will automatically be denied. Can i travel and come back even for a quick visit to just take the ceremony and then go back to my family? I am just trying to find ways. I was planning to stay with my family 3 to 4 month max since i did not see them for more than 2 years and for them to spend time with their grandson. 
 

hopefully will have some opinion and thanks for your time.

No one can't tell you how long it takes to reschedule at your local office. Just reschedule it, and once you get new date you can always fly back in time.

I would suggest you wait after the interview, you can make a quick trip before the oath ceremony. Since you are visiting family, and I think it will cost you flight tickets to go back and forth. You can even make a quick trip to your family and come back before the March 17 taking Covid-19 into consideration. 

Above all, no one can really tell you how long USCIS will take to reschedule your interview or oath ceremony. 

 

Good luck with your decision.
