Re: Naturalization interview!

Yes we were told to go to the SS office and tell them we're now citizens. We were told to give it 10 days, I can't remember why... not urgent for me anyway.

Re: Naturalization interview!

Re: Naturalization interview!

Thanks for the reply! I just changed my location. We moved to the ATL suburbs a year ago.

So you're saying I should bring our tax return? It doesn't state that on the letter unless I missed it.

Naturalization interview!

Hi, haven't posted for a while. I used to be so much more anxious and freaked out about anything to do with immigration. Not sure why, I felt like "they were out to get me"! I'm pretty calm now. Just...

Re: Customs in Miami

I came in through Miami in 2011. It didn't take too long and my family was allowed in the room to wait with me. Some guy went to fetch our bags from the carousel which was very nice. Good luck!

Re: New US citizen leaving tomorrow, question

That's great!

One of the reasons I'm applying for citizenship is for freedom to live abroad if I ever want to (and then return to the US). But don't you have to be currently living in the US to...

Re: Florida driving license.

I failed my first driving test in Florida. I was super nervous and backed into a curb. It was kinda hard with our big SUV in a fairly small parking lot. For my retest I borrowed a smaller car and I...

Re: Current processing times for N-400 (naturalization)?

Great! My last update on the tracking is Feb 6 "in transit to destination". That's 4 days ago now. Ugh. Before that it said it had arrived in Dallas. So I think they probably got it by now but...
