  1. A rather alarming number of US citizens never get passports, so yeah, don't worry. At some point you will also have to go into the Social Security Office and update the status on your SSN. And depending on whether or not you got a full-term driver's license, you will want to update your status with the DMV, too!
  2. Basically the only way to separate out the income is to go back to the actual W-2s or 1099s or whatever. My mother in law joint sponsored and fortunately, while she filed jointly, her income was "self-employment" income so it had its own form, and that made it easier. I think, if you need the combined income to make up the difference, you will need to submit one form per person, but I'm not 100% sure on that.
  3. The ceremony was very nice... 51 people naturalizing - they asked for a volunteer to lead the pledge of allegiance and I volunteered, so that was pretty cool! After we'd all taken the oath and said the pledge, the judge asked if anyone would like to speak. A couple of the new citizens spoke, and it was nice... but the best were the family members saying how proud they were. My hubby spoke (and made me cry a little), and so did some other husbands, but then a little girl whose grandfather had to lift her up to reach the podium said how happy and proud she was of her "nana," and there was no topping that. The 45 video didn't have a chance. And then they played the video for God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood. I would have MUCH preferred America the Beautiful, but whatever. Then we got our certificates and a flag pin (from the local "Daughters of the American Revolution") Then hubby and I went for BBQ. A good day!

  5. Yes, you can continue to use your green card to exit and reenter the US while your Naturalization is processing. However, when you are approved and take your oath, you will not be able to travel overseas until you apply for and receive your new US passport (because you surrender your green card at your oath ceremony.) This may be where the confusion was.
  6. They just asked me if either of my parents was a US citizen. Nothing else about them after I said no.
  7. Remember that you can always amend your taxes later. File something on January first (you still don’t need to pay anything until April) with your 2018 income. Send in the entire package as a response to the rfe with a cover letter that explains that you now qualify to sponsor alone. Then, later, amend your tax filing with more info as required. If your rfe is still being processed you will have another opportunity to send in the amended taxes. Right now, the priority is to keep your current application alive so you don’t lose your application fees. USCIS gets enough of our money already!
  8. Ok... I’m assuming you’re talking about usc spouse’s naturalization cert. The application should have required some proof of spouse’s citizenship. Did you include passport as that proof? That would be sufficient. If you didn’t prove that the usc spouse is a usc, you have to provide some proof so yes, attach it.
  9. Would it be at all possible (or helpful) to file 2018 taxes early (like Jan 1) and submit your entire package? Did you make enough in 2018 to qualify? You’re right - your new income should qualify you, even in the absence of prior qualifying returns, but without a joint sponsor you will need to work even harder to keep your application alive now that they think you don’t make enough to sponsor alone. At least, send another copy of your employer’s letter, along with a letter acknowledging that you didn’t previously make enough, but that you do now, and you will, going forward. Good luck!
  10. Oath Ceremony scheduled! It will be on December 14th - so it will be a race to get my passport in time to go home for Christmas, but since there's an actual passport office in Tucson and a protocol to get an appointment even though it's within 2 weeks of travel, I should be ok! Thank goodness! So glad to be able to get this done and be a citizen and not have to reschedule! Very good day here in Tucson!
  11. Hugs from a fellow Canadian! I'm so sorry that all the backups at USCIS are making things hard for you. I mean, it does for everybody, but especially for those who are depending on AP to be able to travel. It didn't used to take so long. And the first Christmas away from home and family is always tough - especially when you didn't actively choose to do something else. For now, try to come up with some fun things for your new family (ie you and your husband) to do that will establish some new Christmas traditions. Last year, hubby and I threw a Boxing Day party - since Boxing Day isn't really a thing here in the US, it was a cool way to bring some of my traditions to my new home!
  12. I see you’re not getting any responses... A lot of people probably stop coming to VJ after they’ve done their oath. Maybe try searching “rescheduled oath” in the search bar and private message other people who may not be active on the page anymore but might still get an email notification if they get a private message. I should be getting my oath letter soon and hope I don’t need to reschedule! I’ve waited too long!
