    Doing the oath without scheduled oath date possible?

    You can always ask to be postponed so that you get to be naturalized together. Also, INFOPASS is the better option, as calling the 1-800 number goes to a location other than where the files are located and to folks who are not allowed to make any decisions. In your post you listed an...

    Name change document error

    You need to submit proof of this "change" that took place in your home country. It needs to be official. Try asking the Law Library of the Library of Congress if they have this information already written-up. Below from: The Law Library of Congress 101...

    Oath Ceremony in DC with government shutdown.

    USCIS does not rely on appropriated funding, they rely on user fees (the money YOU paid to file forms). USCIS does not shutdown, the ONLY exception is E-verify which is separately funded.

    It is highly likely that the baby will be allowed in and then one of the parents must file the I-130 and I-485, plus do the medical exam etc.. However, upon I-485 approval the baby will be a USC so NO I-864 is required. If an N-600 is immediately filed after I-485 approval (showing only the...

    Immigrant retirees

    EB-5 is NOT a retiree visa. It demands a million dollar investment and the creation of 10 full-time jobs for legal U.S. workers (excluding the investor and family members from the job count). EB-5 investors have to show significant wealth that would exclude them from any medical assistance...

    EB5 visa with hotel investment. (closed business purchase)

    This is a complex question to answer. More details are required. Matter of Soffici, 22 I&N Dec.158 (AAO 1998), tells of an EB-5 investor who simply bought a Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge. While what you describe is a situation where the name would change, it seems that little else would. The...

    Bona Fide Marriage Docs - for AOS interview

    The evidence expected by USCIS is highly variable based on YOUR situation and timeline of events. Without that basic information, it is nearly impossible to advise you about the evidence that you have listed or what might appear to be MISSING from USCIS' point-of-view. For instance, IF you...

    EB-1 EA chances

    The number of articles is low. It would depend on the "significance" of the articles. Is 300 citations high or low or just average for the particular field of endeavor? Reviewing 35 articles would likely meet the criterion in the regs, as long as we are not talking about a college...
