    Eligibility for citizenship

    I don't think you are eligible to file N400 at this point, check Continuous Residence Requirements https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/HTML/PolicyManual-Volume12-PartD-Chapter3.html

    Oath ceremony letter not coming

    You can get walk-in infopass appointment using kiosk at field office.
  9. When you call USCIS your get to L1 agent who will see the exact same information you see when you use USCIS on-line case tracker, once they provide you that update request the agent that you would like to talk to L2 officer regarding your case, most of the time you need to leave your name and number to the automated attendent for L2 officer to call back. I agree with "pontevecchio", 8 weeks is too soon to be worried about and also it is less than 3 months since you applied. USCIS updates processing times about every 4 weeks. I would at-least wait for couple more months before start making any calls and/or infopass appointments. In my case my field office is 2 hrs away and almost all of my infopass appointments field office did not provide any additional information than L2 officer.
  10. Based on my personal experience i would not recommend wasting your time with infopass appointments. Call USCIS 1800 number every 4 weeks and request to speak to L2 officer, and each time you speak to L2 officer ask for a service request. If you don't get an update until your case is outside normal processing time for your field office based on your receipt date file Form 7001 with DHS Ombudsman Office. I believe USCIS is not only under staffed for the case volume(s) it has been receiving but also dealing with the system implementation issues caused from its modernization project to go digital in 2016, which followed by the anxiety and confusion created by the current administration once assumed office. Good Luck!
  11. Not sure it was deliberate or just gross negligence, they were just using background clearance as an excuse until my case is outside the normal processing time for my field office. Yes, i contacted both senators offices since senator1 staff is not really responsive. I strongly believe Senator2 office did a great job, they even contacted FBI regarding background checks. I also believe that case assistance request filed with Ombudsman Office greatly helped in waking up USCIS. I am already registered to vote and i am absolutely going to make my voice heard!

    N-400 - Please advise

    Hi Mrc, #1. It would be better for your daughter to apply separately after she turns 18. #2. You don't need lawyer for N-400, just follow instructions. #3. Yes, list any and all citations. #4. On average naturalization process takes about 5 -7 months. I don't think you need to worry about GC renewal at this time. Good luck!
  15. Took infopass appointment with local field office last week, same standard response: Your case is with NBC and still under review, wait for few months.
