  1. We first went to the SSA to change my wife's file, then immediately after to the Post Office to submit for her passport. Keep in mind, when you send in your Naturalization Certificate for your passport it will be returned in a separate mailing about 10 days after your passport is received. Another thing to consider - if you applied for TSA Pre with your Green Card, that record should also be amended to reflect your change in status.
  2. Thank you! She said the civics questions were obviously a random selection; she only had to answer 6 as her answers to that point were correct, which meant a pass. We'd been practicing the full 100 questions with index cards each night for a couple of weeks, so she was prepared for whichever ones came up. She wrote them out by hand to start the learning process.
  3. We filed my wife's application online and I noticed the same thing after I downloaded a copy for printing/saving - 1 for her, 0 for me. We also reviewed the full application, multiple times, before submitting and all questions were answered appropriately. So, I'd agree that there's something about the way the form maps to the questions that caused the issue. I was concerned but forgot to remind her about it on interview day; it didn't come up at all in her interview (she passed). You can mention it, if it makes you feel better; or just address it if they ask. I'm thinking if it's a flag they'll bring it up themselves.
  4. Hey Folks, I haven't yet seen a thread specific to 2019 Baltimore field office filers. If it exists, moderators please delete this one and point me to the pre-existing. Just filed today for my wife's citizenship. We filed online, based on marriage for over 3 years. She just received her 10-year Green Card this past week. We were about to file anyway, when we suddenly got notifications of her case approval and card production. Glad we waited a bit beyond her N400 eligibility; we weren't looking forward to potential additional delays with a dual filing, but we were willing. With the info flowing about potential case dispersion going on, to improve application processing, I'm particularly interested in sharing statuses with others filing through the Baltimore FO this year.
