Comments : Had my interview today and It went really well. Interview was at 10am we got there at 9:20am and was called by 9:55am, the best officer ever. I asked if my husband needed to come with me and she said Yes, as you have i751 pending so I told her my two babies were there with us cuz we didn't have anybody to care for them and she said oh don't worry it is totally fine. We got in her office, sworn in and she said let's start with  i751 asked for IDs and resident card, then reviewed the application where I needed to provide the answers and then said well you have two (2) kids there is nothing else I need to ask lol, I thanked her and she said let's move to N400 and we will start with the question right away. Asked me if I minded my family in the room with me while n400 interview was in progress and I said not a all, I would appreciate if they can stay with me so she conducted the interview with my husband and kids in there. Questions: 1- what month do we vote for president? 2- what ocean is in the east coast? 3- who is your state governor? 4-what are to major political party in the U.S? 5-what did Abraham Lincoln do? 6-When was the Constitution written? Then asked me to read: When do we vote for president? And told me to write we vote for President in November. She didn't asked for any additional documents except my son's birth certificate cuz he wasn't included in the application as he wasn't born when we filed. She gave me a paper to confirm all of my information were correct, and made me sign in the ipad twice. She then approved both cases and scheduled me for oath ceremony. They gave me the oath ceremony letter and it will be Friday 12th at 1:35pm so this Friday is a big day for me. USCIS sites was updated right away to Your card is being produced and we emailed you oath ceremony. The officer was polite, calm and friendly we loved her since we saw her. Oakland Park FL office.

Hello! Congratulations on getting the interview scheduled. Did you requested an expedited process at any point? Asking because my timeline for my mom's petition is similar to yours.

I did submit an expedite at the NVC stage right after paying everything and submitting all the documents.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
