  1. Got the update today on my online account. Oath ceremony is November 9th at 3 pm. She did say that Oath ceremonies are only on Mondays and Fridays. Are just like Interview the only people allowed in the building is yourself and translator. Family has to stay outside because of Covid guidelines
  2. Review of my citizenship Appointment was at 11:45. I waited outside the building at 11:30. You can only go 15 mins before your appointment due to COVID19. There were about 15 people ahead of me, it was cold so bring a jacket. I waited outside for about 10 minutes. They let me into the building and you pass through security.I had to take off my shoes and anything they could set off the metal detector. If your shoes have heels they make you take them off. I waited in a line then to be checked in. I had to show the lady in the booth my interview letter. The woman looked at the interview letter, took my picture and I gave my fingerprint for my index finger on my left and right hand. She then clicked a few buttons and gave me the letter back and told me to go upstairs and hand it to the receptionist. Then I went up stairs and handed my letter to another lady and she told me to take a seat and wait for my name to be called. I then waited in the waiting room with about 20 other people. They call people by the first name and then take you back for the interview. I waited about 10 minutes. Officer Smith was my inspecting officer. She greeted me and started a conversation. I believe this was a test to see if I could speak English. We had a conversation for a few minutes and got to her office. She took my green card and passport and driver's license and then checked to make sure they were all Correct. She asked for my first and last name and if I was married. She then started with the test and asked me six questions. I passed all of them. 1.What group of people were taken toAmerica and sold as slaves? I answered (Africans) 2. Name one state that borders Canada? I answered (Philadelphia) 3. Who is the Chief Justice of the United States now? I answered (John Roberts) 4. If both the President and the Vice President can no longer serve, who becomes President? I answered (Speaker of the House) 5. There were 13 original states.Name three. I answered ( New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire) 6. Why does the flag have 13 stripes? I answered ( The 13 original colonies) As part of the reading and writing sections she showed a sentence on an Ipad and I had to read it to her. It said “who is George Washington?” I then had to write the answer to that question out on the iPad with my finger. She told me what to write, so I wrote “George Washington was the president” She then continued and asked a bunch of questions that were yes or no answer choices. These were to see if I am a threat to America, obviously most of them were a no answer. Example, am I in a militia? Even been arrested? Etc. She also then asked questions about Pledge of Allegiance to America and if I was willing to defend the constitution. Before all the questioning she did make me stand up and raise my right hand and swear I would tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. She then went through some formalities, checking my address and information to make sure it was all correct. I had to sign and make sure they were correct.

She then proceeded to check the answers and see if I passed everything which I did and then she said that she’s scheduling my oath ceremony and I should receive it in the mail in the next couple of weeks or to check online for a faster response. I left the building at 12:20 so all in all the process went really fast. I didn't have to prove anything with originals, although I did have them with me in a binder. I did need my passport, Drivers License, permanent resident card.

  4. my Interview was 11:45 I was done by 12:20. Now, she did say my interview went fast because i was fluent in English so there was no issue with translation etc so i dont know if all interview where as quick as mine .
  5. Interview went well I passed the Tests now I await the oath ceremony. I will leave a review when i have more time. All they asked to see was my Drivers License, My passport, and my Permanent resident card. I believe I qualified under the 5 year rule so I didn't have to provide any evidence for marriage.
  6. I have my Interview on Tuesday! I am a little anxious an worried that i have not prepared enough....Do I need to take all of the original documents that I uploaded onto my online portal for proof. They are all PDFs so that should be able to see them. Is there anything else I am having to prove? My understanding ( and correct me if I am wrong) is that I am there to take a test (Civils and English )to see if I pass the requirements for citizenship. The fact I have an interview is surface evidence that they believe I have met eligibility to become a citizen. Therefore I do not have to prove anything. Am I correct in thinking this way? I dont want to take a bunch of items with me that is not necessary. My Info. Married 11 years to same spouse I married with K1 visa. 2 step children 1 biological. Wife was previously married. I believe i have qualified under the 5 year rule so the marriage factor should not be an issue?? Any help before the big day would be great or any advice thanks * I pray those waiting will have a speedy process before the end of 2020 to get things moving *

  8. Good NEWS!!! Got my Interview date OCT 27th 2020!!!!! I have been reading this thread and I have a few questions. 1) How likely is it that I get oath ceremony the same day as my interview? 2) If not likely, how soon after is the Oath ceremony scheduled? Also, I came on a K1 visa been married 11years to the same women. I think when I filled the N400 it said I qualified under 5 year requirements rather than the marriage. SO..... does my wife have to come to my Interview?
