Depends on the locale (USCIS office, or Federal Courthouse).  In Detroit there were no restrictions on visitors.


Good Luck!

There were no restrictions here in NH, there were at 8 of us who went to my husband's ceremony. There was limited seating though and many guests had to stand. I would check with your local office.

Even during the pandemic in the beginning of 2021 there were no restrictions on visitors at the Los Angeles field office - this because our oath ceremonies are outdoors, so anybody can come watch. Totally depends on your particular field office, some don't allow any visitors. If you search this site, you might find other people who have been through your particular field office who can shed some light on this.

No guests in Houston.  When we did the kids' oath ceremony last month, only a parent per kid.

Very location dependent. I was not allowed inside the USCIS office during my husband's N-400 interview or the oath ceremony. All guests watched through the windows.
