  2. Hi, I will be filing N-400 in mid-July using the 3 year rule of being married to U.S. citizen while being a permanent resident. I still have pending the removal of conditions (I-751) but since it may take a while I will go ahead to start gathering documents and apply. Please feel free to start the discussion of what documents to gather, tips, etc. Thanks!

  7. Hi, I have a somewhat complex situation and I was wondering if you guys could give your opinions/suggestions: I have been a permanent resident since September 2015 as a spouse of a US citizen. I resided in the US until September 2017, when I left for a job (a fixed 2 year position) in Europe. Of course, I acquired the re-entry permit before I left. I came back to the US for Christmas on December 15, 2017 and stayed until January 7, 2018. I then went back to Europe, again I came back to the US on June 26, 2018 and left on July 14, then again I was back in the US on Dec 2, 2018 and left on Jan 14, 2019. I will be back for good on June 22nd this year. During all this time, my wife lived in the US in our rented apartment which is in both our names and and worked her job. Also, both our cars are on both our names and in addition some of the utilities are on my name. We of course filed for taxes jointly last year and will also do so this year and pretty much did everything that a regular long distance couple would do. From the dates, it's clear that I slightly exceeded 6 months my trip abroad two times by a few days. From https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume12-PartD-Chapter3.html While I can clearly establish the last two evidences but my concern is with the 1st point which clearly disqualifies me. My question is does any one know whether I can apply for Naturalization after 18 months of returning to the US (to establish continued physical presence) or do I need to wait 24 months + 1 day to establish continued residence again, according to

  10. Hi everyone, In a few months i will filing my n400 apication online ( also have pending r.o.c.). My question is straight forward ... What are the things do they require to upload in the intial online part and what can i take to the actual interview. Im guessing important things to upload would include the application form ,tax returns , front and back of green card , copy of passport, driving license etc. Also do i need updated criminal from south africa even tho i haven't been there for 13 years. I will get an updated criminal report from the u.k. and would these also be jave to uploaded or can showing them at intervieq be ok.But what about all the bank statements, utility bills, birthday cards , anniversary cards ,xmas cards , travel memories (boarding passes,hotel bills etc) photos? Can all these things be taken in binders to the interview? If anyone that has applied online for n400 before can tell me exactly what they had to upload with intial application and what they took (or plan to take) to interview i would greatly appreciate it. Many thanks , Phil

  12. Hi everyone, I am just about ready to submit n400, just a few pending items. One is my old ELIS number. I cannot for the life of me find it. I know I had one as I used to check all cases online and I have the emails from uscis in my inbox from years ago. The number is not mentioned in those emails. But I had to create a new online account now in order to file n400 as it didn't recognize my credentials. Does that mean the ELIS number has expired too? Do I need it? Do I just answer "I don't have one" on n400? Thank you!

  19. Hi everyone, I’m still waiting for a decision on the removal of conditions (currently have a GC that is almost a year expired and have an 18 month extension letter) but realized today that I don’t have to wait until March 1st to file the N400 due to the 90 day prior rule. While I was looking at the form online, the last part of it caught my eye. Specifically the part where the oath states: I hereby declare on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; How does this affect dual citizenship? I don’t want to give up my Canadian citizenship by doing this, and the plan will be to start my wife’s Canadian citizenship process once we’re done with my naturalization here to have options for where to live. Is is there a separate thing we have to file to do the dual thing or does it just happen?
  20. My Oath ceremony was on Monday September 24th at 8:00am. I got there at 7:55, went through security and went to the 2nd floor. There you had USCIS staff checking the oath letter and that you had your green card. Do yourself a favor and fill out the back before just to save time, please note the city where you sign it must be Atlanta, Georgia as that is where USCIS Field office and the ceremony is being held. The staff member will go through the questions with you verbally. If you said yes to anything they'll ask you what is that about. I traveled outside the US so I just told them when I left(month); where I went to and how many days I was outside, that’s all they need. After that you go inside, hand in your letter and green card and are giving a number and you must sit in the assigned seat. I got number 64. They had pamphlets out for 85, but they said only 73 persons would be naturalized, some persons had family members with the as translators. All other guests waited outside. They asked the guests to come in at 8:32. The ceremony started by talking about the process then they had someone speak about voter registration. Voter registration volunteers were on site on the third floor to assist at the end of the ceremony. Then we went through some videos on the faces of the nation; then the director speech and the video speech from the president and there was a musical video finally they had the roll-call of the Nations. This is where they call out the country from where everyone who is being naturalized is from and we would stand when they called out our countries name. In total there were 38 countries represented. One of the nice things was the gentleman leading the oath ceremony saying that after we did the call of nations and then the oath that when we sit back down we would be US citizens. So, everyone said the oath of office then we all applauded and sat down. Finally, the admin staff came out to collect the numbers and give us our certificates the they did this row by row you stood up and then you walked to the right and gave her your number and then walked to get your certificate and shake the hand of the officer who was running the program. Then we were done by 9:00 am Afterwards people went to take pictures the entire process from signing in to get in the certificate took around an hour but from the start of the ceremony to the end it was probably 35 to 40 minutes. I went upstairs to the third floor to register to vote the voter registration volunteers made a copy of your naturalization certificate as that needs to be sent with your voter registration form. Please note you have to sign your naturalization certificate and that signature needs to match what you sign on your voter registration form. The voter registration form had seven items to complete: your name; date of birth; social security; address and that you are a US citizen and over 17 and a half years once completed the voter registration volunteers made a copy of my naturalization returned it to me and said that they would send it off to the secretary of state office After leaving the field office, I immediately went to get my passport application. I stopped at a FedEx store nearby and made copies of my naturalization certificate as you need to send the original certificate and a copy with your passport application. I went downtown Atlanta to the US Postal Service passport agency located at 1072 West Peachtree Street NW. It's a good idea to get that done if you are pretty busy and at this US Postal Service location there is a dedicated passport area where you don’t need an appointment. This can be hit or miss but when I went at 10 am they had probably five officers working and no one was waiting so I got through immediately. So just to wait for my passport and naturalization certificate to return. All in all the oath ceremony was a quick and special occasion that I will always remember.
  21. Hi, Just wondering if I can get any estimated timeline of when to get the interview. I filed N-400 on May 2018. Biometrics were taken on June 2019 and today is February 4, 2019 and still waiting. The online estimated case completion date says May 2019. Can someone post their timelines at the Baltimore office ?
  22. I have been going through n400 time line and the updates for most who filed in Atlanta seem like its either the users don't frequent this forum or have not received any updates yet..which is not very encouraging because most go back a year+ So are there any ATL filers that are still waiting in line for interviews? had their interviews? oath ceremony? etc? please share your experience Thanks a lot
  23. Hello All, My GC was approved in early January. I was on an L1, have been working with the company (combined with overseas) for 11 years or so. The second week I got back, we received an e-mail from the President that we had lost an account worth double our annual profit from the previous year. This was accompanied with a vague statement about looking into what this new reality means for the business and how to respond. He also encouraged employees to discuss their anxieties, ask questions and talk about it. Everyone naturally assumes, we will need to cut costs accordingly and we have been through 2 re-organizations in the past to get us to profitability (layoffs). So my question is - given the above - is it reasonable for me to switch employers without waiting the regularly advised 60 days? I've been approached by a recruiter for a position with the same title, that pays substantially more, but they want me to start asap (within 2 weeks). That puts me just over 30 days since I received my GC. My direct boss hasn't told me my job is at risk - the only thing I have is that e-mail above. I don't want to put my GC at risk or risk have it be revoked.
  24. I thought this might help those of us considering a legal name change. The N400 application is (in most cases) a great time to legally change your name. It's fast and it's free. Outside of the N400 process, a name change requires a visit to your local courthouse, may require a public announcement in a newspaper (depending on your state and local laws) and will cost you money. In New York City, the cost is about $65 while on Houston it is over $400, so cost varies from city to city. You can change your name to anything you want within certain limitations. You can't change your name to impersonate someone or in an attempt to hide your identity for illegal purposes. Other than that, it's up to you. If you are Arthur Robert Wilkinson, you can become Geraldo Mohamed Leibowitz. It's important to note that if you are just changing your last name to take your spouse's last name or to revert to your maiden name, then a legal name change is not required. This is because a marriage certificate or a divorce certificate acts as proof of legal name change. This is true EVEN IF your certificate does not show the new name that you want to take. For example, if Anita Mary Harrolds marries Geraldo Mohamed Leibowitz, she can legally be known as Anita Mary Leibowitz even though that name does not appear anywhere on the certificate. In fact, she can also hyphenate both last names without a legal name change. However, if she wanted to change her middle name from Mary to Margaret, she would need a legal name change. To request a legal name change through the naturalization process, fill out the name change section of the N400. The interviewer may ask you to confirm that you still want to change your name because some people change their minds between the application and the interview. The interviewer may ask for proof of your current legal name. In case of a discrepancy between your green card and your passport, a birth, marriage, divorce, or name change certificate determines your current name, so make sure you have these with you (if they apply in your case...it's always a good idea to have your translated birth certificate with you at the interview). The interviewer will print out some forms (three I think) for you to check and sign. These should have your old and new names on them. You will have to be scheduled for a judicial oath ceremony. This is because USCIS does not have the legal authority to change your name and must ask a judge to do so. If your city has regular judicial ceremonies then there shouldn't be any delays. If your city holds regular administrative ceremonies, but not many judicial ceremonies, then the name change may cause a delay. Some cities (including San Francisco and San Jose) have stopped scheduling judicial ceremonies altogether. Applicants in these cities cannot legally change their names through the N400 application. Your interviewer will inform you of this and will cross out the name change section during the interview. You will have to request a regular name change before or after naturalization if you live in these cities (see above). At your oath ceremony you will be given your naturalization certificate as well as a name change certificate signed by a judge. This second certificate will show your old and new names and you'll need it to update your name with your banks, on your drivers license, credit cards, etc. In addition to doing all the paperwork to make these changes, you'll also have to consider the effect of the name change if you have dual citizenship; your name on your two passports may not match and your other country may require you to go through different name change procedures or may not allow name changes at all. People do travel using passports with different names, but you have to be careful when booking tickets and you may want to travel with your name change certificate (and translations). If you want to check whether or not (and how often) judicial ceremonies are held in your location, find your office here and look under naturalization ceremonies: http://www.uscis.gov/about-us/find-uscis-office/field-offices
  25. I obtained my green card through marriage to a US Citizen, we have been married for 8 years and divorced 1 year after I obtained my green card. It took forever to get my green card because he didn't pay taxes so we were missing that document to file for my green card. Now we have been divorced for a couple years and I got re-married to a non-US Citizen. I applied for Naturalization but what can I expect from the interview knowing that my situation is a bit unusual. My former US Citizen husband has also been abusive towards me and I have evidence of that abuse and improper behavior which ultimately led to divorce.
