  1. Applicants for naturalization are of course allowed to travel like all permanent residents. The same rules apply to all green card holders, whether they have applied for US citizenship or not. You can see the following link for a summary of those rules: https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/after-green-card-granted/international-travel-permanent-resident After applying for citizenship, however, your spouse should be mindful of the length of time she spends outside of the US, so that she continues to meet both the physical presence and continuous residence requirements.
  2. - You will be asked to raise your hand and placed under oath for the interview. - You and the IO will go through your N-400. They may ask you questions on the content of the form, so be sure you know what's in there. They'll also ask if you need to make any changes, e.g. if you traveled outside of the US between the time you filed and your interview, or if you got married/divorced/widowed, or had children, or moved, or got a new job, or got arrested for something -- tell them at that time and your application will be amended accordingly. - The civics test is oral. They ask you up to 10 questions from the pool of 100, you have to get 6 right and you pass. Try to give them the exact answers they're looking for. - The language test is both oral and written. For the oral part, they'll give you a written sentence and you have to read it aloud. For the written part, they'll utter a sentence and you'll have to write it on a piece of paper. The sentences typically relate to US civics, and this part of the test is trivial if you speak English at least decently, as the sentences are elementary school level stuff. - Your language skills are actually evaluated throughout the interview, not just through the formal bits where you're reading and writing super simple sentences.
  3. Yes, file I-485 for your spouse, and another I-485 for your child. Once his permanent resident status is approved, and if he is in your legal custody in the US at that time, and if he is under the age of 18 at that time, he will automatically become a US citizen. You can then apply for a US passport (quicker, cheaper, but must be renewed) or file N-600 (expensive, slow, but valid forever like a birth certificate) as proof of his citizenship.
  4. Hi folks! Last night I got an automated email from you which said: To start, let me say that it didn't bother me to receive this email, but it made me stop and think. This is not a complaint, nor is it really about my receiving the email, rather it's about the decision to send the email in the first place. I haven't been on the site because I've been a US citizen for a few years now, so there is nothing to update to my immigration case since I've beaten the game, so to speak. Like I said, this is very very trivial, but since my timeline is fully updated, shouldn't the site realize that and not send this email at all? For example when someone fills out the "Oath Ceremony" date field of the "Citizenship" section of the timeline, it means there's a high probability this individual is forever done with USCIS, and I figure that could meet a simple condition that the site checks for before sending this email. If you still wanna send a "poke" email, you might send another message instead, encouraging people like me who are done with USCIS but haven't been using the site to return and help others who are still in some way forced to deal with USCIS. Just a suggestion Have a nice day!
