  1. I had posted this a few months ago: I field for ROC (I-751) in February 2019 and for N400 in June 2020. I received a notice back in July 2021 for N400 interview, but never received an interview notice for the I-751. Our N400 interview was Friday, September 10 and the officer adjudicated the i-751 at the same time in a combo interview - we went prepared for a combo interview. Both approved, and since Newark, NJ does same day Oath Ceremony, the Certificate of Naturalization was issued on the same day. The i-751 portion took about 5 mins: we were not separated and the officer asked the following in the following order: * to the US citizen spouse: what is your spouse's full name and date of birth? when did you get married? how did you meet your spouse? * to the applicant: what is your spouse's full name and date of birth? We took a lot of additional evidence but was never asked to produce any of it. We believe that it is probably because when giving the officer the original documents (birth certificates, green card, marriage certificate, first child's birth certificate etc), we also handed him the hospital birth records for the birth of our second child less than a month ago. The N400 portion was about 15 mins, and straightforward: the 50 Yes/No questions that are in the application, 6 civics questions and confirming/signing of documents. Good luck to all! See timeline in signature below for details.
  2. Hello...see timeline in my signature below. I can't recall my online status ever showing "Case is Being Actively Reviewed by USCIS". I hope your interview is scheduled soon!
  3. Our timelines is very similar: filed i-751 in May 2019 and N-400 in June 2020 and both were approved September 2021. I hope you hear something soon.
  4. Did you check the timelines for Baltimore office? That should give you an estimate for when others within the same timeframe are getting interviews. See this link: https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/citlist.php?op6=All&op7=Baltimore+MD&op1=3&op2=&op4=1&op5=&cfl=0
  5. How are you at risk for losing your job? Employee verification happens initially and then that's it...I can see challenges if you are changing jobs.
  6. Depends on the local office. For us (Newark, NJ), it was about one and a half months
  7. Please do not pay attention to the timeline for completion. On the day of our interview and same day Oath ceremony, the timeline said 8 months to completion. For us, it took approximately one year from filing (June 2020) to receiving interview notice (July 2021), with interview in September 2021. It does vary by field office, so perhaps you can look at the following site and filter by your field office to get a more accurate estimate https://www.visajourney.com/timeline/citlist.php?op6=All&op7=All&op1=3&op2=&op4=1&op5=&cfl=0
  8. No. The only exception is if the interview letter specifies that your spouse must be present. In our case, we had a combo i-751/N400 interview and the officer conducted the i-751 interview first with both of us. For the N400 portion, only the applicant was allowed to remain in the room
  9. In our case, the NJ driver's license had "TEMP IMMGR STATUS" marked on top, and we went the next day after oath ceremony to update DMV records and get a new license (new license came in the mail after about 10 days). You should also update Social Security Administration records. We applied for a US passport right away, and waited until we received back the Naturalization Certificate before updating Social Security. The reason for this is because we had travel plans upcoming. I hope this helps.
  10. I had posted this on another thread a few months ago: I field for ROC (I-751) in February 2019 and for N400 in June 2020. I received a notice back in July for N400 interview, but never received an interview notice for the I-751. Our N400 interview was this past Friday, September 10 and the officer adjudicated the i-751 at the same time in a combo interview - we went prepared for a combo interview. Both approved, and since Newark, NJ does same day Oath Ceremony, the Certificate of Naturalization was issued on the same day. The i-751 portion took about 5 mins: we were not separated and the officer asked the following in the following order: * to the US citizen spouse: what is your spouse's full name and date of birth? when did you get married? how did you meet your spouse? * to the applicant: what is your spouse's full name and date of birth?

  11. Congrats! Even if you do not hear about the i-751 or it is not mentioned in your N400 letter, be prepared for a combo interview where spouse must be present as well. I see you are at the Newark, NJ office (same as in my case) and our interview was a combo interview although they gave us no heads up about it
  12. Sorry to hear you had a horrible experience! What was the outcome at the end? I do hope you receive good news.
