  1. I got the same thing. So confused!! This is taking so long...
  2. Hi all, I have a question about changing my name on my N400 application. When I got my green card through marriage it was in MAIDEN name. When I filed my I751 to remove GC conditions, I requested a name change, and the I-751 receipt has my MARRIED name on it. I'm still waiting for the ROC to process. I intended to continue using my MAIDEN name for professional reasons and just use my married name personally, since I had published under my maiden name and developed a career with it. This has proven more difficult that I intended, since my employer doesn't allow me to use a preferred name to interact with my students via email or course managers. Because of this, I am considering changing my name again during the N400 process to a hyphenated MAIDEN-MARRIED name, which would allow me to at least have some continuity with my name professionally. I have two questions: 1. Should I wait till my removal of conditions is processed to apply for the N400 with name change, since I had a name change underway with that application? My N400 window has opened, but I still haven't received the new green card. 2. Are there any problems I should anticipate with a second name change? I'm just trying to make sure I do everything right. I've read that sometimes a name change can delay the naturalization process. (I'm in Raleigh, NC. I'm not sure whether they do frequent court-based ceremonies here-- if anyone knows this, or knows how I could find out, that would be great.) I'm not in any terrible hurry, but I do want to make sure I don't get the N400 rejected. Thanks so much!
  3. I'm wondering about this too. Does anyone have any sense of when we'll be receiving new extension letters? As a previous poster mentioned, traveling in October/November when you have an expiry letter that says December might cause problems. I wish I knew when new extension letters were likely to be mailed. I'm worried. It's not just travel that's impacted; those of us who need to renew driving licenses will have problems without new extension letters.
  4. I got an April 9th "Case Was Received at My Local Office" too!
  5. I'm wondering about this, too. My I-751 also includes a name change, and I will be traveling with letter and expired Green Card. Letter is under new married name. Green card is under maiden name. A-number is the same on both, and I will travel with my marriage license. My British passport also has married name with a official note saying that I am also known as my maiden name (I still use this for professional purposes). I hope this will be sufficient, but I would be more comfortable if I knew people had experience re-entry under similar circumstances. Anyone?
