Applied N600 for my daughter mid April. Biometric was not needed. Received a notice to pick up naturalization certificate around sept 2nd week.
Total time was about 5 months. Surprisingly case statues enquiry is not updated, it still says under processing.
Hey all, I received my i-797c in the mail for my N-400 Application for naturalization from Marriage (3yrs after green card) in Seattle, WA. I had some questions.
1. Does my spouse need to be present for this test/interview?
2. Is the ceremony on the same day, or that comes at a later date?
3. Do you know how many questions the test is, and what the % is needed to pass?
Appreciate all the help,
Trying to plan around wife's work, and she wants to take a day off for the ceremony, but no info on if its the same day or not in Seattle.
Thanks so much,
Hey guys, I'll use this thread to post my citizenship timeline and experience so far and I'll keep adding to it for more info.
1) I first submitted my N-400 this May(2022). This was a few months ahead of the 5 year GC status. The initial process timeline said 18-24 months.
2) I was notified about skipping biometric process within a week, by June.
3) I was notified in August about Citizenship interview to be held in September at the Indianapolis, Indiana office. The timeline reduced to 8-12 months.
4) Citizenship interview- I did the reading, writing and civics test. I answered all of them. It was pretty straight forward. They asked me what I did, how I got my GC etc. After a few mins, he mentioned I passed the test and I left the office. I was told I'll hear from them in 2-6 weeks. So I'm currently waiting.
Anyone experienced the same situation?
I appiled for n400 while my i751 is still pending. I got an interview scheduled for n400 but nothing for i751. I brought my husband with me and the IO did the combo interview for us yesterday. I passed the n-400 but the decision can’t be made. The IO told me that we have to wait for the I751 to be approved. She cannot make the decision right on spot. I went home and later that day, my i751 status changed to case was transferred to another office. I am wondering any one experiencing the same situation as me? Would you please share it?
I would like to thank God, my family and friends and people on this forum for all the support since we all started that immigration journey. I proudly became a United States Citizen today. I did my oath ceremony in the Plano Center in Texas. Please find below my timeline (I filed my N-400 based on 3-year marriage to a US Citizen).

September 20, 2022: I did my Oath Ceremony.
Hello everyone, I had my citizenship interview appointment on June 16th at the USCIS Newark field office. My application was recommended for approval by the officer. However, the officer told me that I will need to do my oath ceremony at the USCIS Long Island field office since I am residing at my new address (in NY). I used to live in NJ and that was why I had my interview in the Newark field office (I did change my address on the USCIS website, but I didn't get any notice for the change of my interview appointment). The officer also asked me to contact the USCIS Long Island field office directly by a letter to expedite the process which I did. I have not heard from the USCIS long Island filed office since my interview (around 3 month). I am wondering if anyone who may have had a similar experience because of change of address in the middle of this process can share theirs.
