Hi, I am a US Citizen living abroad as a missionary. My wife is applying for citizenship under 319(b) of the INA.
My questions are:
1) After research, we've decided we'd be best served to be interviewed and naturalized at the Fairfax, VA USCIS office. We've indicated this both on our cover letter as well as on the application itself. On my N-400 application, my mailing address is a Tennessee address (where my parents live). Will this present problems when my application is reviewed? Should I instead use an address of a friend in Virginia as my mailing address?
2) Because we want to be interviewed in VA, I am assuming I need to initially send our packet to the Lewisville ,TX location. Is this the correct place to file? I read somewhere that, in times past, there was one specific location (I think it was Phoenix) where all 319(b) cases were to be filed. Can someone confirm where we are to file our N-400 packet when filing under 319(b)?
3) Has anyone recently gone through this process? We're intending to file our application the first week of March. My wife is a month pregnant, so we're hoping that the interview will not be scheduled in the last trimester (where would mean about 5-6 months from the time of filing). Ideally, the interview would come closer to 9 months after the time of filing (a few weeks after the baby is here). Can anyone advise how long your process was with filing under 319(b)?
