Dear friends, after 16 month long wait, I finally got interview notice for 11/27. I would like to get some advise from you for my preparation:

1. For Tax documents, is 1040 considered transcript?
2. The the citation ticket, does IO ask copy for that?
3. What is dressing code for interview?

My status was changed "Oath Ceremony will be scheduled" and below message shows my case. Is anyone had similar case with name change and have any idea how long does it will take to get oath ceremony in Dallas?
I have not received any letter and was told I will receive letter then ceremony notice within 30 days but some people said they got notice status will change within 45 days. Also officer informed I may need to go two separate dates one for name change then oath ceremony.

Status shows:
We placed you in line for your oath ceremony and will send you a notice for Receipt Number NBCxxxxx,with the date, time, and location of your oath ceremony. You should receive your notice within 30 days of its mailing date. Please follow the instruction in the notice. If you move, go to www........

Hi all,

Finally I am done with this process, it took me about 17 months total. Thanks for all those who posted here, it was helpful. My overall impression was that although the process is very tedious but employees at Dallas FO that I came across were very helpful. One thing that I want to add is that if you go for a name change, that will delay your oath ceremony, and in some cases quite significantly, this was told to me by the officer. So decide for yourself if you want name change then or later on. I am excited to be able to VOTE now.

For folks who had Employment Based Green Card and did go thru naturalization process, I was wondering if working for employer other than petitioning employer or doing any business affects your naturalization or any problems faced during naturalization interview?

Hello everyone!
I had my interview on November 06, 2018 in west palm beach. The interviewer was very sweet, and so was the supervisor. However, the interviewer gave me a “decision cannot be made” since they wanted to review my travel history and confirm if I am eligible. After reading the requirements on the official website online and doing my calculations, I consider myself eligible. Nevertheless, I think a thorough review by the supervisor is a great option to figure out if I fulfill the requirements. The interviewer said I will receive a letter in mail in a week or so. But after reading a few posts of people from west palm beach, it seems like it is taking much much longer than a week or so. My status online has not been updated from “interview scheduled”.

Please share if you have a similar experience and have been interviewed at the “west palm beach office”. How long is it actually taking? That is my concern. Waiting gets easier if you know how long do they take to make a decision!
Thank you in advance.

I had my interview on nov 5th I passed the test and the officer told me that I’m gonna approve you today and he said you should receive your oath ceremony letter within 2 weeks. My question is:
When he said within 2 weeks did he mean 2 weeks exactly or it could take more than that ? Cuz my status still says interview was scheduled. Thanks!

I had my interview on November 7th in Irving.
The officers were nice and professional.
I was called in by one officer who asked me the civics questions and gave me the English test. Upon knowing that my 10 year green card application was supposed to be adjudicated at the same time, she asked for another officer to help because she has never done it before.
Another officer came in and asked a few questions....how long have you been married and how many children do you have...and I gave him our child birth certificate.
I was then asked to go back to the waiting room. Another officer (who could adjudicate my 10-year green card and naturalization applications) called me in.
She told me that she had already adjudicated my green card application and went on with the naturalization interview. She asked me all the questions to which your answers should be no. She asked if I still wanted to change my middle name, i said no...(my oath would have been December or January..she said).
She then recommended me for approval!
I am now waiting for the oath ceremony notice....hopefully this month
