  1. Hi, I am eligible to file for citizenship under the 3 year rule with a pending 1-751 (since August 2022) and I wanted to check with others if my evidence list would be sufficient or if there would be anything else I should include in N400 application. I have recently filed 1040X with IRS to amend my status on the past 2 tax returns and I scanned a copy of the signed 1040X’s so I can include that in the evidence also. I was advised it could potentially take up to 20 weeks for IRS to complete amendments, so I was hoping I can send the proof of amendment in my application. Current list of evidence: -Marriage certificate -Copy of front and back of green card -Husband’s birth certificate -2022 tax transcript -Tax returns and 1040X amended forms for both 2021 and 2020 -Lease agreements for past 3 years -Renters insurance -Health insurance (for me and my husband through employer) -PDF document comprised of photos of us over the past 3 years, including with friends and family (with dates and locations) I have bank statements, internet bills, phone bills and utility statements that I can send if extra evidence is recommended, although I have them printed so I can bring them to the interview. Lastly, I worked remotely for most of the past 3 years and I was confused on the application question that requires the location we worked at for each employer. From my understanding, would it be best to include the employer address listed on my W2’s and specify in my job role that I was a remote worker?
  2. @Mike E mentioned that it's best to use the Employer address on the W-2. I'm also a remote worker and my working location is my home address. On the W-2, my company uses a PO box, but on the Form 1095-C, they use the street address of my company. Can I use the street address instead?
  3. This might be an extremely naive question but I am hoping some of you can help answer some basic questions I have. To provide some background context, I am eligible for citizenship since I have been holding a green card since Jan 2019 (and married to a US spouse for 5 years) so I meet the requirement eligibility of A...As a spouse of a US Citizen, you can apply for citizenship 3 (three) years after approval of your Adjustment of Status. Your approval may be noted via any of the following: approval notice (I-797), on your passport (I-551 stamp and date), your green card ("resident since" date). The 3 year countdown begins with that date. This 3 year period does not include long absences from the United States. from this link : https://www.visajourney.com/faq/k1k2visa-naturalization.html/8.1 So I started the N400 document process online in the USCS site and the form seems straightforward but I am confused about what all documents to submit beyond the following 1. Copy of the green card 2. Tax documents from last three years (filed Jointly) 3. My wife's birth certificate showing that she is a US citizen by birth 4. Her US passport scan 5. Our marriage certificate scan When I did my green card application, we basically submitted a ton of paperwork such as joint bank statements, proof of owning a house together, electric bills (showing joint payment etc). Looking at the N400 form, I dont see any mention of that or even when I search online or in the forum for what package people sent. Do I not need to worry about sending loads of documents this time (or is there a recommended list) I can refer to somewhere which will tell me what additional documents to submit. Thank you so much.
  4. Hi everyone! I filed for naturalization under the 5 year rule, In August. Today I got an update that my interview is scheduled. Question, other than the list of items that the letter ask me to take to the interview, is there anything else you recommend taking, will they ask for any particular evidence? I am so nervous and do not know what to expect or how to study for the civic test Thank you.
  5. Hello, My fifth birthdate of my Green Card is coming soon, I will apply for N400. Due to my work condition I had to travel a lot out of the US for periods less than 6 months, so I did not break the 6 months rule. However, I have many trips of around 4-5 months periods and the total physical presence is just few days more than 30 months, will this affect my application in anyway? I know it should be ok, but I want to make sure if I am missing anything. Any hints on that please? Thanks
  6. i did my naturalisation oath ceremony with name change at the local uscis field office in virginia.while the judge processed the oath taking virtually on a big screen.we all i mean other cadidates including me for oath got our naturalisation cirtificate with new name on the spot.but we did not receaved the court order of the name change.do you have any idea if i am going to get the court order of name change or not.i called uscis for the name change court order document i did not receaved but they dont give any information about that and even dont arrange an infopass to inqure at local uscis.please give your valuable input if you know what to do in this situation. or the naturalisation cirtificate with new name is enough for everything.thanks
  7. I just had my naturalization interview recently and my oath ceremony will be in the next few weeks. Right at the beginning of my interview, the officer informed me that I wouldn't be able to change my name as I had requested in my N-400 because their court was closed due to COVID and that no one was getting name changes in that field office. The IO told me what most people are doing is to get their naturalization without the name change, then apply for a name change in their local court, then apply to their US passport using the naturalization certificate + name change from court. I asked the IO if this wouldn't cause an issue knowing the naturalization certificate would have the old/incorrect name as soon as I change the name in the court. The officer said it shouldn't, because even if the certificate had the old name, I would have the court document with the new name. The officer was really nice and helpful, but I didn't want to continue pressing the name issue during my naturalization interview. So I have a few questions: 1. Has anyone seen/heard about a situation like this in other field offices? (my field office is Portland, OR) 2. If I get my name changed through my local court (after naturalization), Should I request a new naturalization certificate? The fee for this seems quite steep: $555 for the naturalization certificate + $300 fee in my local court. 3. Has anyone here done this? Did you apply for a passport with a naturalization certificate (old name) + court name change (new name)? 4. Any ideas? Thanks all!
  8. Hi friends my friend’s (US Citizen) son (4 years)came as dependent and is on green card right now. son came March 2021 in United States. I am assuming that he is already US citizen as minor Bcz his dad is US citizen. so can he get his naturalization certificate? If yes what is the procesure. thanks
  9. I have the flexibility of working remotely and was wondering whether I could move to a city/state that has the shortest wait times for N-400 approvals? I can apply for naturalization end of July 2021. Is this something possible to do? Thanks.

  11. I am an LPR and for the past 4.5 years have been working for a foreign company online and was getting paid in my US bank account. While I was an employee of the foreign company working online, but for tax purposes my income was reported in schedule C to IRS. I am filing N-400 now and I am confused how to report my employment history. Should list the 4.5 years as self employed? or should I list the foreign company as my employer? I would appreciate to have your feedbacks and advice. Thanks.
