  1. Filed on 1/30/2020 and still waiting for waiting for interview to remove conditions. Filed N-400 on 12/31/2020. Got letter stating that same biometrics used for I-751 will be used for N-400. They made sure to say that biometrics fee will not be refunded. They got $85 and did not use it for the biometrics and still keep the money! What a scam!
  2. You would have chosen 1 of the 2 choices below. I am at least 18 years of age and have been a lawful permanent resident of the United States for at least 5 years. I am at least 18 years of age and have been a lawful permanent resident of the United States for at least 3 years. In addition, I have been married to and living with a U.S. citizen spouse for the last 3 years, and my spouse has been a U.S. citizen for the last 3 years at the time I filed my Form N-400. What different documents are you referring to? If you did not submit a required piece of information, then you would have received an RFE. It's just better to bring as much information as possible to the interview. Having said that, if you have been in the US for 11 years, I would think that you would have picked choice 1. Why are you looking for reasons why USCIS did not ask you for certain documents? You got an interview!
  3. The I-751 was filed on 1/29/2020. As of 11/15/20, the N-400 could be filed. Not in a hurry unless the processing fee is scheduled to go up again. Most likely will try to file N-400 before 12/1/2020.
  4. Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview As of November 18, 2020, we are ready to schedule your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, Receipt Number MSC2090XXXXXX, for an interview. We will schedule your interview and send you a notice. Please follow any instructions in the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.
  5. You need to call USCIS to confirm everything. If a letter was sent out, then you need to verify the date, time and location of the interview.
  6. I-751 is the petition to determine whether the marriage was in good faith. Once the I-751 petition is approved and a person gets a permanent green card, that means USCIS has determined that the marriage is valid. The N-400 is to apply for US citizenship. There is no need to prove that the marriage is valid. The only thing concerning marriage is whether you are still married to the US citizen. That means if a person divorces before 3 years, then he or she has to wait at least 5 years to naturalize.
  7. Why would more proof of marriage be required with the N-400? The N-400 is applying for citizenship. You have to establish that you are still married to the US citizen if you are applying before 5 years. Proof that marriage is not fraud would have been sent with the I-751. Proof of marriage would have been done at the NVC level, prior to getting conditional visa.
  8. Those of you who have pending cases for I-751 since 2018, have you filed the N-400 yet? In some instances, it may bring attention to the pending removal of conditions case.
  9. If you can wait to enter after 2 years of marriage, I think that is best. Entering with a 10-year GC is the last hurdle. Naturalization is optional and is a much easier process.
  10. I know but naturalization does not occur if the I-751 is not completed. The I-751 cannot still be pending.
  11. How can there be naturalization when the I-751 is still pending?
  12. Congratulations! Too bad that when you file the N-400, the filing fee will have gone up from $640 to $1160.
