How long does it take to receive Oath Letter after passed the test? Interviewed had in San Francisco.

Asked about 2 years ago - Oakland, CA

I had my citizenship interview on July 18th 2012 (today) Received N-652 form after the interview with check-marked (Passed US Civic Test, Reading, Writing) and another check-marked "USCIS will send you a written Decision about your application".

I did not get the usual "heck-marked "Congratulations! You have been recommended approval."

So how long does it take for me to receive the oath letter? Is there anything I should be worried about? Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Answered . Usually 45 to 90 days. But that may not apply to you. If something is up - there may be other problems. If the officer just needed to check with his supervisor - then it should be quick.

    Answered . Usually within a month you should receive the oath ceremony certificate, unless there were issues at the interview. It appears your case is still being reviewed. You should hire an experienced immigration lawyer to go to the district office and follow up your case.
