Waiting for FP and visiting abroad

    I recently sent my N400 to TX lockbox and I am wondering when I am going to receive my FP notice. This is because I have plans to visit India (urgently) around June 10 for about 25 days. I am thinking that I will done with FP before that and might receive YL also before leaving for India. I believe there is a long gap between FP and Interview (roughly 2-3 months), that's why I am planning like this.

    Are my assumptions correct? When can I expect my FP notice?
    Thanks in advance.

    I think you will be OK. You should get your FP notice 2-3 weeks after filing. It seems to be about a month from filing date to FP done in Washington. And then there is a long wait of about 3 months until Interview, as you say.

    You may have already done this, but visit: http://www.trackitt.com/usa-immigration-trackers/n400 and select Washington as your USCIS DO. Sort on the Application Filed column. You can even make a spreadsheet to calculate min/max/median times between steps if you're really interested! (Not that I would do anything like that! ;) )
