I had my naturalization interview in Hartford, CT at 2:15pm on July 12, 2012. I passed the history/civics test and the Interviewing officer congratulated me. He also mentioned that someone would need to "verify" my file details before "final" approval was given. He did NOT issue me a N-652 form. He asked me to wait outside and he would check if my oath letter could be issued on the same day, but came back after 5 minutes, saying that since it is later in the day (Hartford office closes at 3pm) I should wait for the letter in the mail. Have not received it yet. Will not getting a N-652 at the end be a problem? I called USCIS customer service few days later, spoke with a Level 2 officer who mentioned that USCIS has requested my A-files (not yet consolidated?). Should I be worried?
As someone who practices in Hartford, I can say that this is not all that unusual, especially if they have more than one file on you. They will want to consolidate and review them. This is likely the reason they did not give you a letter - not because the office was closing. They want to check the file. As to whether there is a problem, only you and CIS can answer that. If there was nothing problematic in the filings you had before, there is no problem. Give them about 60 days, then make an Infopass appointment if nothing by them.
