Oath Ceremony : 2020-07-16
Comments : Scheduled for interview 4 times. 3 times cancelled due to COVID-19. Last time worked. This is a combo interview w/ I-751 first and N400 second. My spouse was not allowed in during the entire process. I-751 process was about asking me for evidence and questions regarding the marriage. Officer quickly approved I-751 and went on to N400. N400 process started with updates on the information regarding the application and then reading 1 sentence & writing 1 sentence, followed by civic questions. At the beginning of my interview I showed the officer my court certificate of name change and the officer updated my name on I-751 & N400 files. After I passed the test, officer checked the Yes/No questions I answered on my N400 application with me one more time. Listen carefully with each question! My application was recommended for approval after that. However, USCIS system had some tech issue with a quick background check they needed to do before we could proceed to oath ceremony. I was offered the chance to wait in the waiting area until their system worked again. After about 1 hour, I was then called back in to finish the oath ceremony in the officer's office. I took the oath and became an American citizen. I then waited in the waiting area again for them to print the naturalization certificate. The entire process took 3 hours and 32 minutes. There was an initial line up at the check in counter, and then some waiting for the interview officer to call my number. The interview itself took 50 minutes. The oath ceremony took 5-10 minutes. Waiting for the naturalization certificate was about 30 minutes. Officer was very kind and helpful, including officer Michael who helped to stamp my passport earlier last week. I owe them both a big thank you! #VoteLikeYourLifeDependsOnIt *Update: on 7/20 I cast my first ever vote!
