    Should we put homemaker for my wfie in the employment section?

    I don't think it is necessary to mention that during her unemployment dates. I didn't mention about two gaps in my job and the IO wasn't even worried about it. As my lawyer would always say, do not provide informatoin to USCIS if not asked for. One is inviting trouble by doing so. Good...

    No Information on Surrender certificate

    Where did you get this information? I read a posting in this forum that the PIO/OCI appilcation was sent back since the applicant sent both PIO/OCI app & SC together. He was told to get SC first and then re-apply for PIO/OCI.

    Questions 13 and 14 on PIO card application in Indian Consulate NY

    No, you don't need to. Just send yours with notarized. It should be fine.

    What is a service request?

    Service request is a way to get an answer regarding the status of your case. INstead of an InfoPass appointment, you do this over phone. Service Request does not delay any process. It just gives you an update of your case. Good luck howdy_howdy //

    Printing Problems with OCI!!

    PIO is another beast. Since they have started asking for SC's, even PIO's takes months. Mine is already 6 weeks in works and no sign of movement from CGI Houston. You are better off taking a travel visa and visit India. Good luck howdy_howdy //

    Traffic tickets and naturalization (threads merged)

    Just pay the money rightnow and get the case closed. This may be a big issue during moral character evaluation for N400.

    No Information on Surrender certificate

    I was also told by someone that the Indian consulates rotate employees within other consulates thereby not letting them settle in one Consulate. Plus they come on deputation and by the time they get to know the rules & regulations, they are sent back home. This may also be the cause of delay.

    No Information on Surrender certificate

    CGI Houston? Good luck! Like I said in one of my posts, CGI Houston is the worst of all other Consulates. No emails, no phones and no way of contacting them. My gut feeling is that they are overwhlemed by the applications and they have no idea how to handle all the cases.
