  1. Is she currently in the US? It says If your beneficiary is currently in the United States, complete 38.a-38.h You only need to fill that out if she is currently in the states.
  2. We were not able to update unfortunately. If you have enough time, go ahead and update, if not, then when you are in the states again.
  3. well, this sheet is dated 2016. Maybe there are some changes in the mailing addresses. But you take the idea and change the other details that are outdated. Don't write to Rome. I found a new request form and where to send it. There is the email address of the US embassy in Frankfurt. Look here https://it.usembassy.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/67/2016/09/DHS-MilitaryNaturalization1.pdf I found it on this website https://it.usembassy.gov/embassy-consulates/rome/sections-offices/dhs/uscis/n-400/ Strange, before they would list the same info on US embassy website in Germany. Here is the link that people do get naturalized in Germany. Here is the article from 2015 https://www.herald-union.com/naturalization-ceremony-welcomes-new-americans/
  4. refer to this one. It explains two rules in details and lists all the documents, also a cover letter sample https://www.jag.navy.mil/legal_services/documents/RLSO_EURAFSWA_N-400_Packet_for_Spouse_(April_2016).pdf
  5. you probably got a little confused. They do not process. It only means that you file to one of USCIS lockbox and now they even accept it online, but they will forward the application with the appropriate overseas office in Germany and she will have the interview and the oath ceremony overseas instead of traveling all the way to the states. But it is not under 319(b) which will not allow overseas naturalization. Read Form N-400, Application for Naturalization (For Military Abroad) here. https://www.uscis.gov/about-us/find-uscis-office/international-offices/germany-frankfurt-field-office Just don't select 319(b) if you want your spouse to naturalize abroad.
  6. You shouldn’t think of 319(b) as expedited in the sense of faster. It’s not. It only means that the residence requirements are waived. For example, someone who just got their green card one day, and if all the requirements are met, they can file next day without being a resident for 3 years. I know that US embassies overseas usually process immigrant visas much much faster for the military community. I would guess it can be the same for naturalization because they will process only the applications from the militaries.
  7. I looked at your timeline. It seems you can apply under 319(a) and go through the whole process overseas provided you are active duty. If so, don’t file anything in the states. You will do it all at the local embassy in Germany and fingerprints too, then she won’t have to go to the states for the interview. If you are not active duty, then yes you can file under 319(b) right now. Sorry for bombarding you with multiple replies. Here is more information https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-12-part-i-chapter-9
  8. If she is eligible to have the interview and oath in Germany then It’s not 319b she will fall under a different section. ( Under section 319(e)(2) of the INA and 8 U.S.C. § 1443a) look here if she meets the requirements. https://www.uscis.gov/military/citizenship-family-members
  9. I think she can get naturalized at the US embassy in Germany and get her interview there if you are active duty.
  10. What is a Sworn Statement A sworn statement is a document that contains facts that are relevant to a legal proceeding. Sworn statements are similar to affidavits, however, unlike affidavits, they are not required to be signed, witnessed, or sealed by a notary public from a legal dictionary. It’s up to you to take it to the notary or not. I personally notarized it. Depending on a notary they might give you a form that already has the name “affidavit” and at the end such and such something like confirmed and witnessed blah blah. You will have to write your own text in the middle. Then the legal guy will seal it.
  11. You don’t know what a sworn statement means don’t you? How could it be extreme? Sworn statements are not notarized. Affidavits are notarized.
  12. Evidence of Applicant’s Intent to Reside Abroad with Citizen Spouse and Return to the United States Upon Termination of Qualifying Employment Along with his or her naturalization application, an applicant for naturalization under INA 319(b) must submit a statement describing his or her intent to reside abroad with the citizen spouse and his or her intent to take up residence within the United States immediately upon the termination of such employment abroad of the citizen spouse. [26] The link is here https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-12-part-g-chapter-4
  13. Incorrect. The mother goes to the Ukrainian consulate in the US and does that there. Apostile is not needed of course
