Good day/eve! Now that there is a government shutdown, will it affect USCIS applications? I am on the scheduling que for oath ceremony for N-600. And it has been 90 days since it has been placed in scheduling que and haven't received any mail from USCIS. Do you think this will have an effect on me being able to get my certificate of citizenship ASAP? Thank you. God bless.
A good question. You mean an N-400; not 600, for there is no "oath ceremony" for an N-600. USCIS professes to be open and running normally since it is funded by individuals like yourself who pay them the filing fees. The oath ceremonies being officiated by a federal judge, however, it remains to be seen if those oath ceremonies will be continue as scheduled. I'd like to think that yes, that the "partial" shutdown will be over with in a matter of days.. We'll see. Stay tuned, cruise the USCIS website daily for more up to date info. www.uscis.gov
I agree with my colleagues. You must be referencing the N-400. As for the oath ceremony, good question. As my colleague stated, they are officiated by federal judges and as such they may very we'll be impacted by the shutdown. Other support services related to USCIS have been affected.
