The Day When You Go for Naturalization Interview

At your interview, an immigration officer will ask you for identification, place you under oath, and interview you about:

  • Your past and background;
  • Your place and length of residence;
  • Your character;
  • Your willingness to take an Oath of Allegiance and follow the US Constitution.

Together with you, we will prepare and file on your behalf your N-400 application for naturalization. Please review carefully the version to be filed, which will remain in your profile, before attending the appointment.

The USCIS officer will use the application to test your English and to confirm that the information you have given is accurate. If there are any discrepancies among the answers on your application and supporting documents, be prepared to explain the reason.

Besides, you may be asked about  your updated information since the time of the N-400 submission. For instance, be ready to provide details of your time outside the United States if you took a recent trip abroad, or confirm changes in the address, employment, or biographical data.

Your ability to comprehend these questions and answer them in English is part of the interview.

In most cases, some changes will not affect your application, such as a new job or new positions, a recent relocation, a newborn child, etc. Some changes, however, may affect your eligibility:

  • If you have were outside the US for 6 months or more;
  • If you have been arrested, sentenced, or imprisoned for certain crimes or otherwise violated the good moral character requirement;
  • If you recently got divorced (only for those who are applying as a person married to a US citizen).

If you expect any of the aforesaid situations, we highly recommend to contact our accredited immigration specialist before attending the naturalization interview. You will get all the support you need and, if necessary, additional legal help will be provided.
