Well, ok, USCIS support center. FBI sounds more exciting though .

I got to the Jacksonville office an hour early, which was good as the weekend traffic was already starting to build up. I was in and out in 15 mins flat. I've been there before and the staff there are always super nice - much different from my first experiences at the Seattle office 20+ years ago.

Some guy who had driven a relative there had his cell phone ring as I was signing in. He sat there taking the call - the officers at the front door were less than amused and turfed him out right there and then. Surprised they allowed him inside with it in the first place.

There were 193 people from 64 countries. I was the only Brit.....lots of Mexicans and Jamaicans.
The lady in front of me (from Cuba) was crying all the way through....I was fighting the tears back....I don't know why, It was never a lifelong ambition of mine to live in the US, it just happens to be where my husband is from. However, I was still very happy to become a USC.
Congratulations to you both!

Citizenship is the next step for me but we're moving across the country in two weeks time so the application is on the back burner. Be a new US citizen by the end of this year is my goal

Pretty sure I know them all, there's one or two I have to really think about for some reason. I always feel like saying 'minister' of a department instead of secretary. Like minister of defense instead of secretary of defense.

I think it varies by the jurisdiction where you file. In LA, it typcially takes 4-5 months. Of course, they can wave their wand next week and the times will change completely.

Here in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill NC area it took me 3 months end-to-end and that included the Oath Ceremony too.
