  1. Hello All, I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but just trying my shot here. I'm trying to renounce my Indian citizenship as India doesn't allow Dual citizenship, during the application process I came across a this requirement AFFIDAVIT OF NATURALISATION AFTER THE EXPIRY OF INDIAN PASSPORT – ORIGINAL & NOTARIZED If the applicant was naturalized after the date of expiry of the latest held Indian passport. A notarized affidavit may be submitted explaining the background and the reason for this gap. My Indian passport expired in January of this year and I didn't realize that, do you have a template/letter/affadavit I can refer to and use it? I tried to look for it online but didn't find any. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello All, Thanks for your time for reading and answer this question. I came across many applicants whose I-751 got transferred to their local FO after filing N400, I have few questions regarding this: 1. Is it mandatory to add/upload ROC related documents or a letter asking USCIS to adjudicate both the cases? 2. Is there anyone here whose 751 got transferred to their Local FO without asking them to adjudicate or without adding any ROC related docs? 3. Doesn't USCIS know about our pending cases? TIA.
  3. Hello everyone. Im posting this to share my experience and as reference for others First i was scheduled today 6/7/21 at 9:15am (in San Bernardino, California) 9:05am- went inside the uscis building (they wouldnt allow you in earlier than 15mins from your appointment time); 9:10am- reception check in (i wish i brought my phone with me inside i thought it wasnt allowed but everyone has their phone with them) 9:40am- i was finally called for my interview Officer, asked for my passport (if i had one he said), driver’s license and green card Started with reading test , “today is columbus day” Followed by writing test, “ Columbus day is in October” Then the civic test; 2 rights in the declaration of independence Number of voting members of house of representatives 2 parts of congress what does the judicial branch do who is the chief justice 1 war fought in the 1900s trick question; he asked if i voted before i said no then asked again if i already registered to vote and again i said no Review of what is in your n400form asked for my first name, last name, middle name, then my ssn asked where i live, who i live with; (i had to give my other child’s birth certificate since she wasn’t included in the application initially) Asked if i was working, he then asked a follow up question of what i have been doing for the past 5 years since i just started working recently asked what and where my spouse is working Asked if this is my only marriage, and then if this is my spouse’s only marriage No other additional documents needed Final questions, where the standard if you were in a terrorist org, committed genocide, if convicted, if evaded tax etc he said he will approved my application and to proceed downstairs for my certificate 10:00am - proceeded to the oath ceremony room on the ground floor to fill up form that said nothing change from the time of interview to the oath taking ceremony (questions on the form where the same as the final questions above); they will give your oath taking packet (basically some pamphlets about citizenship and passport, small flag and copy of oath of allegiance) 10:15am - Oath taking; Got my Certificate of Naturalization 😁 documents i brought with me for the interview are; Original documents: Marriage Certificate CRBA and Birth Certificate of my children Spouse’s Certificate of Naturalization and passport My passport; green card ( both my 10 yr green card and my 2 yr expired green card from when i was in a cr1 visa) Copies of documents: copy of green card copy of the original documents above tax transcripts (4 years including 2020) car insurance mortgage; previous rental lease life insurance utility bills Joint credit card statements copy of passport pages with entry and exit stamps (if you went outside the us), visa page note: they didn’t ask me anything but i brought everything just in case. That office used to not conduct same day oath taking but probably due to covid they do now, Which is more convenient for everyone. Good luck everyone!! Thank you to everyone here for guiding me through my immigration process by posting their experiences. And now to pay it forward, i hope i might help someone who wanted an updated interview experience.
  4. Hey guys, Anyone knows how much time US Citizenship process is taking these days - i.e. from filing (the form) for citizenship to interview. If someone has a knowledge please chime in. Thanks, Sam
  5. This post is for N-400 April 2021 fillers, so we can keep track on our timelines. I submitted mine online yesterday 4/30, received the notice that they are reusing my biometrics, I guess that speed up my time little bit. Good look to everyone. 🙏
  6. My interview for citizenship was canceled because I traveled outside the country Less than 14 days before the interview date , My application is processed in San Diego office, anyone have an idea about how long it takes to reschedule a new interview? thanks .
  7. Hey guys, I am a little confused about the Naturalization process and I need some clarification. My situation is, I am currently within the 90 day window of applying for my citizenship and I have 2 children that are LPR’s too. So my question is, do I have to file for the 3 of us? ... or should I file for myself first and if approved they would automatically be Naturalized...?
  8. To those who file online with a stepchild, did you include his/her birth certificate too? Thanks in advance
