  1. Yes, this was for the I751 interview with the two of us and she wanted to see recent photos. She had all our paperwork and evidence like the bank accounts and mortgage and earlier photos, but the officer wanted to confirm an ongoing relationship. It had been 2 years since those documents had been sent in. I happened to have some recent ones printed that were acceptable, so she didn't need to see my phone in the end. Probably best to bring a few recent ones along. They might not ask and we may have passed the I751 without it, but better safe than sorry.
  2. We were also asked for recent photos since it had been a year since our application. She originally asked to see my phone photos, but I had brought a printout of a few photos from the last year and that was fine and went into their file. Also, be sure they do your I751 at the same time or at the very least the N400 officer is well aware, that the I751 file is there, and that it's in the queue to be scheduled for an interview. Like us, I've been hearing a few others say the officer wasn't scheduled/wasn't able to do their I751 interviews at the same time but then there seems to be a glitch getting those scheduled after the fact.
  3. I wasn't sure where to post it where it'd be the most use to people, so I'm putting it here. We had a very stressful situation for my husband's oath ceremony. His oath was at the end of August. That week, his mother fell gravely ill and it was necessary for us to book a flight to the UK as soon as we could, which was basically immediately after his oath. We may hold the record for quickest departure from the US after an oath ceremony. Anyway, I knew you aren't meant to travel outside the US without a US passport, but we were left with little choice. There wasn't even time to get an emergency one at a passport center before we left, which I've heard can be processed anywhere from 12 hours to 2-3 days at best. We flew 2 hours after his oath. Anyway, all was fine leaving the country and then we made an appointment with the local US consulate when we got there. We went in and told them about our emergency, brought the death certificate although that was not required, and they were able to issue an emergency limited use passport for him. We then updated the airlines and used it to go through US immigration on the way back. There were some extra questions about why we didn't get it before we left, but ultimately they were understanding and it was all fine. When we got back, he filed to convert it to a 10 year passport and there were no issues with doing that. I just wanted to post this in case anyone else has an equally horribly timed emergency.
  4. Apart from us, I've seen a couple instances now of people being told they can't get their I751's done at the same time as the N400. It's frustrating because it seems to very much depend on the officer and how you were scheduled....there's not a lot of consistent policy. I strongly suggest, if you are waiting on a pending I751, to go in for an Infopass and ask if the file is at the local office and if you are being scheduled. They lost ours in a drawer for 6 weeks, the computer meanwhile said it was in Missouri, and there was nothing that was going to trigger the I751 interview to be scheduled. If you don't hear soon, go in and advocate for yourself as much as you can because that's really the only thing that caused progress on our case. Sorry that happened to you!
  5. Thank you @Dee elle! Definitely glad we found that out before he left. @milimelo We'll probably end up doing that now that it's clear you need the passport for leaving the country too. I thought maybe it was just entering and we could get away without having the pay the extra expedition fee.
  6. Hello, my husband's oath ceremony is coming up soon and we're thinking ahead to the passport. He may travel to the UK for an extended time after receiving his naturalization certificate and I know you can apply for a US passport at a US consulate abroad. The process seems pretty straightforward and we're thinking that might work well. We know you're only meant to enter the US with a US passport and that's fine. But is there any issue with him leaving the US, traveling out with his UK passport as his ID at the airport, not a US one?

  8. I was also going to suggest a will. Plus, add each other as beneficiaries on anything you can - credit cards, bank accounts, and retirement accounts can designate beneficiaries if your partner is not already on the account.
  9. This is what was concerning me about it too. It's one thing to change what qualifies as a public charge and say "From X date on, you can't qualify for this benefit if you're an LPR" and people have time to adjust and still be ok, but if it's retroactive that could affect a lot of us. Hopefully that was a mistake. Having health insurance was a legal requirement for the last few years.
  10. My husband's case status changed online today to Oath Scheduled. Now we're just waiting for the letter to tell us when the oath is going to be.
  11. After all these processes wrap up, I'm considering writing to the ombudsman to alert them to this happening. Not sure they'll do anything, but they should know there've been several instances of ROC files sitting at the local office and never going to the interview stage while their computers say it's in Missouri. Maybe they'll decide to look into it.
  12. @Nisha0414 That probably means the date to contact them if you don't receive the letter with the oath date, like if there's been a problem with their systems and you haven't heard by then. But likely you'll get the letter soon and then based on your July interview your oath will probably be the August one unless it's already full. You should hear either way soon.
  13. My husband and I just got back from the I-751 interview. He had his N400 interview way back on June 23, but because the I751 one wasn't done at the time we just finalized it today. It was approved! Note to anyone else going in - we were asked to show photos of us on our phones. I had printed some new photos so I offered that up, which was accepted which I thought was better than having to scroll through all my random phone photos. She said she was entering it into the system today, which should trigger one more background check and then he'll be scheduled for his oath. Anticipating getting a status change and letter within the next couple weeks so will update at that time. Hoping for August 24!
  14. @Nisha0414 The Southern CA one in August is on the 24th I think. I'm guessing you'll be assigned that one if they've mailed your letter this week.
  15. I second getting an InfoPass appointment and have your fiance bring those photos + letter of intent (not sure if they'd take them there, but can't hurt to have them when he talks to someone). It's hard to say without actually having received a denial in hand, especially since they told you three different things. I'm not sure I'd even trust that that's correct until it's a firm letter.
