    mnbinth got a reaction from klmnl2000 in N-400 Expedited Naturalization 319b Information   
    My wife will be applying for Expedited Naturalization under Section 319b under the Immigration and Nationality Act. I've had a really hard time finding information on how to do this so I'll be documenting our process and posting resources for anyone that is doing this now or may need help in the future.
    To see if you qualify, learn about the process, and other FAQ from USCIS, view Expedited_Naturalization_FAQ.pdf
    For a sample cover letter, view 319_b__Cover_Letter.doc
    For the latest Naturalization Application and Instructions (N-400) visit USCIS Forms
