  1. Hello Anyone that recently had Oath Ceremony in Oakland Park FL can you lease provide details. Were guests allowed? Any information you can provide would be great!
  2. I wanted to provide an update. If you remember we lost patience and filed the N-400 before the I-751 was processed, and my wife had her N400(March 2020 filer) interview in June. The officer gave her the Civics test, she passed, only for the officer to say we can't schedule you for oath because she didn't have the I-751 paperwork and it needs to be approved before she could review it for Natrualization. Our file was in Potomac Service Center and as everyone knows, it is sloooooow. On October 2nd, we left Virginia after living there for three years and relocated back home to Florida, which is where we started our Visa Journey 5 1/2- 6 years ago. I changed the address for our relocation in the system, not knowing what the cause and effect would be, but knowing that any type of change within USCIS, when already in process can be a bad thing. I was starting to see some of the couples receiving approvals, without interviews that filed on dates close to ours. I was kind of wishing we had just hung out in VA a little longer. On October 4th we received notification that a new office had jurisdiction over the file. Around two weeks later, we received notice that we would have an I-751 interview on November 30th. Today is November 30th. Interview lasted around 50 minutes. The male officer did the swearing in, biometrics and began immediately asking questions. Literally, 50 minutes of questions. Started with how we met, and the circumstances of that meeting. Then he went to why we moved to VA and left Florida, ask me to detail our complete timeline in VA. He was more focused on asking me questions, only asking my spouse probably 4 or 5 questions throughout the interview. Depending on how I asnwered, spun him off to a question he would then reaffirm with my wife or a new question for her. This was very thorough but not interrogative, but most certainly thorough. He asked for any other documentation we had brought, only from the time after the inital I-751 filing. This was not what the interview letter asked for, but I was able to provide it. I also brought a photo book, I made through Google, that was a gift for my wifs last Christmas. I asked him if he wanted to see that as well, and he did. He sorted papers, kept what he wanted and set the others aside. He looked at the photo book, front to back. He then said you can have your ID's and expired green card and also handed me the stack of papers of evidence that he didn't want to keep. He said, you will not be getting a green card because you had already filed for Naturalization. I cannot approve you because there are additional security checks that need to be conducted. He then asked if we had any questions for him. We didn't and he walked us out and said have a great day! Again there were positive signs, but we left again feeling in limbo. The Officer was not intense, he was very professional and thorough. He was also very purposeful in how he led the conversation. Upon checking the USCIS site, it said "We recommended that your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, be approved. Your case was submitted for quality review." Upon second check a bit later "Oath Ceremony Will Be Scheduled." What a day! It still hasn't sunk in, feeling drained and numb. Soon this will all be behind us. The emotions when I can watch my wife take the oath at the ceremony and see her sense of pride will never be able to be captured in words. I can hardly wait!

  4. No decision today, the officer didn't have her file, only the online naturalization application and uploads. The officer said she needs the file to make a decision. So no ROC approval or naturalization approval, however my wife passed the English and civics test. No combo interview and I was not allowed in the building.

  6. I am certainly going, but it may be 50/50 a combo, because we did have an AOS interview. You never know with USCIS. Thank you for well wishes.
  7. My wife's naturalization interview is tomorrow, in Norfolk. We are super excited and she is nervous all the same. Our ROC has not completed and the interview letter didn't mention a dual interview, so that should be interesting.

  9. Feel ya! I hope the N-400 interview will really happen and it is not a uh-oh your ROC isn't complete.
  10. So my wife's N-400 is scheduled for 6/15 in Norfolk and she hasn't been cleared for ROC yet, assuming it is going to be dual interview.
  11. My wife's interview is scheduled for 6/15 in Norfolk. Letter issued yesterday. Her ROC isn't completed so assuming dual interview.
  12. Yes...it was simple and the site told you, based on answers you provided, what you needed to upload
  13. After 2.5 months, it appears NBC is going to reuse my wife's biometrics for the N-400 as well. First movement on either of the two applications in a while.
  14. My wife just received Biometrics reuse letter for N-400. We are still pending ROC. Potomac is moving kind of slow.
