  1. 24 hours old US Citizen Got my interview and same day oath (only perk of NJ). Arrived 20 minutes early and interview started 20 mins late, IO V. RODRIGUEZ was very professional. Right hand up and oath that all what I'll say is the truth Personal data verification. Name changes if any (denied). supposed to be updating the application but system was acting up, so she so professionally skipped to the next step. Civics (not in order) What is freedom of religion. What is the age for males to sign for selective service. Who is the chief of the Military. Name a part of the government. During the cold war what was the main concern, When do we celebrate independence day. Read: Who is George Washington? Write on the tablet ahead: Washington was the first president. Generic No/Yes questions Back to update the application, corrected the destination of my travels after the application that they got wrong. Asked for my spouse's original birth certificate (3 yrs rule). Check and sign how my details would look like on the naturalization certificate. Recommended for approval. Time: ~20-30 mins mainly because system being slow. Back to waiting area, with pre-oath documents that I checked boxes saying nothing has changed since my interview, signed and dated. Got an message from USCIS, status changed, checked and it said, oath ceremony has been scheduled and we mailed you the notice. Got called to a window where I gave them the pre-oath document, signed a copy and the original naturalization certificate after verifying sure information is correct and gave me a flag and an envelope with passport application and oath copy. Back to waiting area where I relentlessly chased my son around and everyone saying he is cute and how come he is white and I'm brown-ish and me smiling socially while my wife sat in the back literally having contractions for our baby#2 (real story) that was delivered 7hrs later. Got called to the oath room families sat in the back 99% citizens up front, watched a video, national anthem, oath, watched Mr. Trump welcoming the now 100% citizens cause we swore the oath, got original certificate, darted to the hospital. Whole thing took ~4 hrs. Applied for passport 3 hours ago, so I can come back to my country if I had to leave for any reason. Mail man, stapled through the $555 certificate so carelessly. When it comes back I'll then update SS, DMV(MVA) records and register to vote. I'M DONE

  3. I applied 9/2 Nothing yet. Latest I've seen scheduled for Newark : 8/20 Online application. 2/19 Interview scheduled - 182 days after filing. 4/15 Interview - 238 days after filing.
  4. I have been tracking cases at Newark from efile till interview date, average wait time currently is 246 days. Longest is 252 days shortest is 240 days. For your case, I'd say the latest would be around 4/25/2019, and the earliest would be around 4/12/2019. As @visaquestions2018 said, mid April is a very good bet.
  5. USCIS is funded by its applicants. It doesn't get fund from the government which means it won't be affected by the shutdown.
  6. Two scenarios: 1- They interview him (both of you if that matter) for N400 and i751 and approve him for both, so yes PLEASE take all the documents with you. 2- They only interview him for the N400, approve him (e-notification will say a decision couldn't be made due to pending i751) and postpone his oath ceremony till after the approval of his i751. I've read over VJ that this usually happens within 30 days after his N400 is approved. Your husband should definitely ask to get joint interviews once he is with the IO, specially that you're gonna be there. Which decision will they take depends mainly on the field office and its capability of approving a mail in form (i751) on the spot. You can get a better idea if you find a similar case at the same field office and see how it was handled.
  7. Congratulations, hoping everything goes well. Would you let us know when is your interview?
  8. Is there like a spreadsheet or some kind of tracker for this group? Trying to get an estimate of the actual wait time from filing till interview at Newark office.
  9. Pending i751 got approved 9/26 and I picked new card from local USPS 10/2, for a total of 1Y 10D processing time since filing i751 and one 1M after filing N400 online. Only waiting for 1 application now.
  10. Congratulations. Wishing you all the best. I see from your timeline that you have filed to remove conditions, any updates there? did you get the 10yr green card or going in with both application still pending?
  11. 99% sure it depends on country of origin. I got code 5 as well.
  12. Below text is copied from Instructions for Form N-400 (PDF, 260 KB) NOTE: You must submit documentation of traffic incidents if: (1) The incident involved alcohol or drugs; (2) The incident led to an arrest; or (3) The incident seriously injured another person. You do not need to submit documentation for traffic fines or incidents that did not involve an arrest or did not involve drugs or alcohol, if the only penalty was a fine of less than $500 or points on your driving record. 10. Question: What documentation is USCIS looking for on N-400 applications for clients who have traffic citations only (no arrests), such as speeding tickets? This is in reference to the Good Moral Character section, question 16, which asks if you have ever been arrested, cited, etc. Also, what is expected at the N-400 interview regarding these traffic tickets? Response: Typically if an individual only has minor traffic citations with no arrests resulting (i.e. speeding tickets), they will not be required to submit any additional information with the N-400. However, if, during the course of the interview, an adjudications officer determines that there are circumstances that warrant further investigation, (e.g. there is an indication that the applicant has failed to pay fines associated with the citations), the officer may request additional documentation. (e.g. payment, certified police/court documents indicating such). I will get a copy of my driving record and add it to my online documents just in case, just wanted to share what I found.
  13. Why do you need traffic incidents? what are you applying for? N400? I didn't include my "broken light" ticket and I can't remember seeing a question about traffic incidents. Am I missing something?
  14. It says 13 months. From what I've been reading that is the average, the lower average I think. I wasn't expecting any shorter to be honest with i751 been pending for 12months already.
