2: who was president during the great depression and world war 2?
3: who lived in America before Europeans arrived?
4: who is the Father of our Country?
5: what is The capital of the United states?

And write: “George Washington is the father of our country.”
And Read: “Who lives here first.”
And after that yes no questions.that’s it!!! After that IO ask me nothing and said it’s look good. Now you are good to go. That’s it..!!!
And same day status updated.
I hope this information will give you guys hope and help. Thanks to all. Good luck to all.
My divorce decree was granted July 5th,2022 only thing is that my divorce lawyer failed to tell me until one month later, even so we (my immigration lawyer and I) submitted that divorce decree with the request for evidence two days later.
Now here is the problem, I did my N-400 interview (I passed :) yay !) Sept 28th, 2023 (yesterday) and the officer said she didn't see my divorce decree with my RFE that was submitted aug 26th 2022. Now my entire case is being reviewed because of that discrepancy, meaning if she can find that I submitted the decree when I said it was then I'll be approved for citizenship, If not I fear that there will be an issue with my greencard. VERY VERY VERY STRESSFUL situation. My Immigration lawyer is currently out of town and I'm waiting until next week to let her know whats going on. I've been a greencard holder for 5 years, I did not file in the 3 year category.
Also something else to note was that she asked me a bunch of questions about my marriage, as to why did i divorce him ? why did i marry him in the first place if he was controlling and verbally abusive ? When did we get married , and out of nerves I said March 4th instead of the correct date March 2nd, she asked me where did I last live with him and the address, when did i move out ? how did i maintain myself whilst unemployed ?

My I-751 pending application got approved today, 1 month after filing my n-400. Should I change anything with my n-400 application? My case is married to us citizen. I am happy that they approved my I-751 before even scheduling my n-400 interview as I heard alot of people having problem with the combo interview.
I attended my Citizenship Interview on Septermber 6, 2023 in Baltimore field office. I passed the civic test and there was no complain and also the Officer asked me to take oath of Allegiance and Verify my name as it will be on the Naturalization certificate. I thought I was approved until I checked the letter that was given to me and figured that she checked the box that says " Decision cannot be made ". It has been 1 week now and my status haven't changed. I am frustrated and unhappy because it took me 4 years to get my greencard and I don't want to go through the same trauma with my citizenship. I don't know if anyone is in this situation that can provide some information about what to expect. Thanks
I wanted to share a major milestone in my life with all of you – after countless sleepless nights, moments of anxiety, and more, my USCIS journey is finally complete, and I am now a proud U.S. citizen!
The path to U.S. citizenship is not always easy, but it’s incredibly rewarding. I’ve spent years navigating the immigration process, from filing paperwork and attending interviews to studying for the citizenship test. There were times when it felt like an uphill battle, but I never gave up hope.
The anxiety and uncertainty that come with the immigration process can be overwhelming. Waiting for updates, preparing for interviews, and wondering if everything will go smoothly can take a toll on anyone. But, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that perseverance pays off.
I want to take a moment to thank this incredible community for the support, advice, and encouragement I’ve received along the way. Your stories, insights, and shared experiences have been invaluable to me.
For those of you currently on your own USCIS journey, remember that you’re not alone. Reach out for help when you need it, stay positive, and keep pushing forward. Your day will come too, and it will be one of the most memorable and fulfilling moments of your life.
