  1. I'd say try and request to expedite your wife's case. In worst case they'll say no. You'll never know unless you try.
  2. Hi Rachel, You'll need the following: N400 application form (can submit it online) Evidence of spouse's citizenship (birth certificate, or certificate of citizenship, or valid US passport) Evidence of spouse's employment abroad "Such evidence may include: The name of the employer and either the nature of the employer’s business or the ministerial, religious, or missionary activity in which the employer is engaged; Whether the employing entity is owned in whole or in part by United States interests; Whether the employing entity is engaged in whole or in part in the development of the foreign trade and commerce of the United States; The nature of the activity in which the citizen spouse is engaged; and The anticipated period of employment abroad." 4. "Evidence of Applicant’s Intent to Reside Abroad with Citizen Spouse and Return to the United States Upon Termination of Qualifying Employment. Along with his or her naturalization application, an applicant for naturalization under INA 319(b) must submit a statement describing his or her intent to reside abroad with the citizen spouse and his or her intent to take up residence within the United States immediately upon the termination of such employment abroad of the citizen spouse. 5. Copy of your green card (both sides) 6. Application payment 7. Marriage certificate 8. Proof of termination of all prior marriages 9. Tax returns/tax transcripts/bank accounts/leases - for the past three years, mortgages, birth certificates of children Just check the N400 checklist for all required documentation. You can read more whether you're qualified to file under 319 (b) here. https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-12-part-g-chapter-4
  3. Plus me here as well. I had my biometrics early June last year and heard nothing since.
  4. I applied June 1 last year and still no updates, still waiting. I don't even have an estimated date.
  5. Did you get an exact date for the interview? Did they contact you via email?
  6. Thank you! My case is in Florida and has been transferred to NBC in March.
  7. My case status has been changed yesterday to "case has been approved" and "card is being produced". Wow! I'm so happy!
  8. I've got a new estimated completion date, which is June 10. This is very encouraging news. I hope USCIS will reopen by then.
  9. Yes, you'll have to apply for ROC once the window opens unless you get naturalized before that. Here: "1. Spouses who Reach Petition Filing Period Prior to Naturalization In most cases, the 90-day period for filing the petition to remove conditions will have passed prior to an applicant becoming eligible to apply for naturalization. However, in some cases involving applicants whose citizen spouse is employed abroad and in cases in which a late filing of the petition to remove conditions is permitted, the 90-day filing period will start after filing for naturalization. Under these circumstances, the applicant must file the petition to remove conditions and the petition must be adjudicated prior to or concurrently with the naturalization application."
  10. They said the USCIS offices will be closed to public until at least May 3rd. At least you're half way there. You'll get your citizenship soon. I, on the other hand, don't even know what to expect now. Everything will be so backlogged. I've been waiting for my interview to get scheduled, but now Idk...
  11. I'd say as soon as you get an order from your employer in hands, you can file for N400 under 319B. You don't have to wait until you actually relocate. It will speed up things a bit. As for the Oath ceremony, there are several offices that do the Oath ceremony the same day you naturalize (NJ, DC, and other offices). When you apply online, you can choose the office you wish to naturalize at. I'm thinking if you apply any time soon, you'll make it before the I-751 window opens in December.
  12. You're correct. If you take the Oath before 90 days window opens for I-751, then you don't need to file I-751. If the window opens and N400 is pending, then you must file I-751. The processing time will be as per your filing office timelines. Here: "A CPR spouse of a U.S. citizen employed abroad may naturalize without filing a petition to remove conditions if: The CPR spouse has been a CPR for less than one year and nine months; and The CPR spouse does not reach the 90-day filing period for the petition to remove conditions prior to the final adjudication of his or her naturalization application or the time of the Oath of Allegiance. [11] "
  13. You have more than enough evidence. As for the US bank statements that are in Spanish, can you get them in English from the bank? If not, I think your wife can translate them and certify that she's fluent in English and Spanish and the above translation is true and accurate. Although, I'm not sure how one would translate bank statements.
  14. Message stating that "we're taking longer than expected to process your case?" I had this message for more than a month now. I open my account every day just to see that there's nothing new... I have I-751 pending, other than that nothing else, no name change. There are many VJ members getting their N400 approved with I-751 pending so I don't think it is an issue.
