Travel once application is filed? Also my 15 year old son has had his green card since dec 2006 will he be able to apply for citizenship or do we wit until we have heard if we have been accepted. Does anyone know how long the whole process takes in the Tampa area. Thank you. I realize I have asked multiple questions here.
Hello Ma'am. Thank you for your post. There is no restriction to travelling while your naturalization application is pending. But in some cases, it is advisable not to travel. So please obtain an evaluation of your facts, just to be on the safe side. Also, your son may not apply for naturalization since he is under 18 years of age. However, once either you or your husand naturalize, then your son will likely derive citizenship automatically; but again, have an evaluation done just to be sure. Please note that the processing time for Tampa is about 4-5 months, but varies. It is advisable to have an attorney file the applications and maybe even represent you at the interview. I hope this helps. Best regards.
