  1. 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!
  2. Hello VJers, I need your help!!! My husband is a December 2018 US Citizenship filer. He was finally scheduled for an interview on October 8. However, we received the letter September 10, a day after he shipped out for military training. Yes, he was enlisted for almost 2 years in the military as a green card holder and he finally been shipped out. We decided to push through with his citizenship application because we were not sure about his military journey since his ship date kept on getting pushed back. I have been trying to call USCIS and I have been searching for the local office's phone number but my calls are always been answered by the operator and there is no option to speak to a customer representative. I cannot find the local office's number as well. I have sent a secure email 3 days ago and I am not sure how soon they will answer. I plan to send back their interview letter (as instructed on the letter) but I don't know how to explain to them nicely about the situation (and maybe request for some sort of consideration). As a civilian, if he passed his interview, he will most likely get his citizenship after a month. But since he is now in the military it will take up to 180 days for him to become a citizen. Please don't get me wrong. We are so grateful that these wonderful things are happening to us. We are not in a hurry and in God's perfect timing, then so be it.

  4. So, after almost 10 years of living in the US, I've decided to apply for US Citizenship. I am currently pregnant and due in February, but would like to submit my application next week. Would I have to indicate that I'm currently pregnant and with child (I'm due the first week of February) on the application?
  5. My sister is dual citizen, Canadian and Nepal. While filling N400, what should be her answer? Both countries have allowed her to keep the respective Passports. Question - 11 - Country of Citizenship or Nationality Also, should she submit passports from both countries along with online application? Is there an option to upload passport copies? Should she carry passport from both countries to interview?
  6. Hi there! I hope somebody can give me answers to my question... I was married to my husband for 15 before he passed away 2016. I was married in the US but didn't processed my citizenship because we went to live abroad. Fast forward 2014 I got the new green card and been living here in the US eversince. Since he passed away before the 3 year mark, I am eligible to file under the 5 year rule. I got married again this year, so my question... 1. Do I need to file to change of name under my new husband's family name in my green card before I file my my citizenship paperwork?
  7. Hello All, I am just getting ready to file my N 400 based on the 5-year rule. I have a question about the N 400 edition date. It says on the USCIS website that this is the 12/23/16 edition. Is this the most current one or is a more recent edition available? Also, what are the advantages of online filing vis-a-vis paper mailing? TIA :)
  8. Hi everyone, just wanted to group all N-400 filers from Louisville, KY and share the experience.
  9. Hello I am us citizen through naturalization living in india since 5 years .. my wife is indian citizen and my kids become indian citizen because i was short of few days for us stay while they born in india ... I would like to get my children us citizenship so what can be procedure?
  10. Hi All, After my N-400 application got approved I took US Citizenship Oath on 10/10/18 and received the Naturalization Certificate the same day. The next day i received an email from USCIS regarding my N-400 application stating the following: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *** DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS E-MAIL *** There has been a recent processing action taken on your case. Receipt Number: IOExxxxx Application Type: N400, APPLICATION FOR NATURALIZATION Your Case Status: Decision On October 11, 2018, we issued your Certificate of Naturalization for your Form N400, APPLICATION FOR NATURALIZATION, Receipt Number IOE0xxxxxxx. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address. During this step the formal decision (approved/denied) is written and the decision notice is mailed and/or emailed to the applicant/petitioner. You can use our current processing time to gauge when you can expect to receive a final decision. Log-in to your myUSCIS account to view your case history and understand what you can expect to happen next on your case. Current processing times can be found on the USCIS website at under Check Processing Times. Sincerely, **** The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) *************** --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Since after this email I have not received any (approval/denial) letter either in the mail or email its been over 2 weeks. Just to give you a little background ..... on the Oath letter which i received there were some question on the back of it where you have to say yes/no to the some questions. So i have selected yes to one of the question where it ask "If i have traveled outside the US since i have been interviewed." Since i did traveled for 2 and half months so i mentioned the dates right next to the question as supervisor asked me to do so, then he asked me several questions regarding my whereabouts like where i have been traveled too, and what if I have kept my job in US while i was gone and if I own the house or renting a place and so on. But he (the supervisor) never asked for any of the proofs of that trip. Even though I did took all the proofs along with me (my rental lease, my car insurance, my utility bills, tax returns, paystubs, bank statements, etc...) along with me to justify my continuous resident in US while i was gone, but supervisor didn't ask for anything as i mentioned earlier and he simply put his remarks on the Oath Letter (form) and i was asked to go and take the oath so i did and got the Naturalization certificate and also registered for the voter registration right there. On the same day I also applied for my US passport and I have already got it in within 17 days. So i am not sure what is the purpose of this email which i have received just a day after the Oath? Is there anything to worry about? PS. I have taken the Oath on 10-oct and in the email they mentioned the Certificate of Naturalization was issued on 11-oct isn't it strange. I was wondering if anyone had a similar scenario or experience kindly please share Thanks !
