    I always say don't ask your Senator because he/she can care less about your case.Ask your congressperson.

    Uscis officer can still send you to the secondary inspection office as he sent me when I traveled a week ago. But spent there only 5 min, went to the restroom at least as when being in the immigration line I couldn't leave!

    Hello all, I've been following this thread silently for a very long time so decided to introduce myself and a little about my case. Mine is a bit complicated but will take any advice, questions, moral support etc. Here is my timeline with only relevant dates to current case:
     
    April 2012-Placed under final order of deportation in absentia. I missed my court date in removal proceedings (USC spouse didn't show up to GC interview)
    April 2017-I-360 RD
    October 2018-Vawa I-360 approved. MTR filed
    December 2020-MTR(motion to reopen) granted, back to removal proceedings from 2012
    March 2021-I-485 AOS receipt notice
    March 2021-Immigration hearing in Cleveland for removal proceedings. Case was continued. Master hearing scheduled for May 2021
    May 2021-Master hearing was rescheduled for August 2021
    July 2021-Attorney advised me to terminate case in court and move AOS to USCIS. I was on the fence since judge seemed like he would approve my I-485. But since my attorney refused to go to court I continued with termination.
    August 2021-Motion to terminate removal proceedings granted
    August 2021-Filed another EAD with name change since the renewal I filed in May 2020 got lost in the mail. 
    August 2021-Biometrics appointment
    March 2022-Two year EAD received
    March 2022-Called USCIS to schedule infopass. Awaiting callback. (I'm hoping to physically hand motion to terminate order from immigration judge to USCIS to ensure the file gets to local office for processing). I'm worried my I-485 application hasn't even made it to USCIS yet. My mom did the same a few years ago which expedited her case. 
    March 2022-Filed AP as I need to travel to Spain for work conference in November

    What do you mean to bother USCIS? It's their responsibility to process your case in a timely manner. Your case is taking 4 years and max time for i360 is 31 months. If I were you I would contact a senator.

    GENERAL INFORMATION! (N-400)
    Tips on Applying and Completing Form N-400
    The instructions and eligibility guidelines for naturalization on the USCIS website do not clearly explain that VAWA-approved spouses and children of abusive U.S. citizens can apply for naturalization after three years as LPRs. This can be confusing for both applicants and USCIS itself, which sometimes forgets that this ground of eligibility exists.
    Moreover, the naturalization application Form N-400 does not have a specific box to check to establish eligibility on this basis.
    Therefore, when completing USCIS Form N-400, on Part 1, Information About Your Eligibility, check box E for "other." As an explanation, write "Have been an LPR for at least three years (VAWA, I.N.A § 319(a))."
    You might also want to attach a separate statement about how you qualify on this basis and copies of a USCIS memorandum discussing the issue: Clarification of Classes of Applicants Eligible for Naturalization under Section 319(a).
    Realize also that you will still have to meet the other requirements for naturalization. For example, you will have to pass the civics and English tests and meet the physical presence requirements.👍😊

    Hello Everyone,
     
    I wanted to share my news with you. I had a very lousy citizenship interview on 2/15/2022  despite passing the test and answering all questions correctly the officer was VERY rude and unpleasant. She questioned my eligibility and insisted on changing my name back to before marriage  I explained that my SSN and all papers in USA have my name after marriage (just a short version of my name, i never took my husband's) and my marriage certificate was signed by a judge and even then she did it incorrectly and refused to even let me answer the question regarding my eligibility.
    She gave me a letter stating that I passed and a decision cannot be made yet.
     
    I left the interview very upset and frustrated by the whole situation, just to put it politely she was a despicable person (I hope she was just having a bad day and won't subject other immigrants to this again).
     
    After a week of praying for the best outcome I received the notice of approval, followed by the oath ceremony instructions for next month. Thank God 
    Now I have to deal with the problem of correcting my name which I hope someone will assist me with during the oath ceremony.
     
    I am thankful for this forum where I found a lot of helpful tips and support during this journey,  I added my timeline as my signature and hope it will be a useful reference to you.
    Best of luck to all.
