    How did you find out that name check is pending

    Hi,
    I got the congratulations letter after the interview on 2/2/06. The officer told me that I will be scheduled for an Oath in February or in the next two months. I am not sure if My case is pending name check, so wanted to find out based on how you found out.
    thanks for the info.
    I will definitely let you know when I receive my oath intimation.
    Thanks
    Suresh

    What did your (1-2-1) congratulations letters say? Did the officer tell you how long before you are called for oath?

    This is what I was given

    I was given the N-652 form in which is checked you passsed the test of English and the US history and government. In the lower sections, the congratulatins, your applicatin ahs been recommended for approval is checked.
    There is another paper which is attached with it which mentinoed you should receove a notice to appear for a naturalization ceremony in te near future.
    the econd paper is stapled on top of the N-652.
    My question how do we know if ther is a name check pending as mentioned in the previous messages.
    Thanks for any help,
    Suresh

    My understanding is that if you had not cleared name check you would not have received the congratulations letter.

    Can you please post your time line?
    thanks.

    I got the recommended for approval checked. In fact the officer said that I should get my oath letter within 2 weeks.
    No letter over 4 motnhs since interview. Checked with the bloomington office twice and name check is causing the delay. Common name.

    brb2 Registered Users (C)

    Is that a chinese or Muslim common name?
  11. one2one

    one2one Registered Users (C)

    Its a Muslim name. Also, officer didn't say that name check pending. he said that oath letter in 2 weeks.
  12. brb2

    brb2 Registered Users (C)

    Unfortunately, it is very likely that you are stuck in the name check queue.
    I would suggest that since you have completed the 120 days after interview time period, you should file a writ of mandamus to bring the issue to a resolution. The senate is considering Senator Specter's bill which will remove this clause from law. You could be in this very same situation even a year later if you don't act now. Look up the links how to file one yourself, and act while you still have that option.
    Good luck.

    How did you check your status twice with the Bloomington office. Did you call and talk over the phone or did you go through the infopass appointment ?
    Thanks,
    Suresh

    I checked the status personally via infopass appointments. I have called and place status check request twice with the national customer service line as well. Bloomington office seems very efficient in resonding and processing. Its the name check that is causing delay. Thanks brb for the advise. I am seriuosly considering it. And will wait another week and go for it. Even the interviewing officer higlighted this on his reply to one of my status check request that i filed over the customer service phone line that i have an option to file it after 120 days of the invertview.
    Please keep us posted all in st paul.
