My husband was scheduled for his Oath Ceremony this coming Friday, October 26. However, due to an impromptu business trip, he will be out of the country for the next two weeks. I mailed a letter to the Baltimore Field Office stating this fact and requesting a reschedule on his behalf, however, I couldn't find the N-445 at the time, so, I sent the request without it. I finally found the letter this evening. My husband suggested just to mail everything again, but I wonder if that would delay the process even more (two requests to reschedule might set his Oath Ceremony really far in the future). So, is returning the N-445 imperative, or merely a formality? I would hate to delay his process even further just because we wanted to "make double sure."
You still have time to send the N-445 to USCIS via fedex (overnight delivery) and note that you previously neglected to send the N-445 and it is enclosed now. I suggest refiling if the prior request did not contain sufficient information to identify the case or was not sent by means to track the delivery. Be sure to include all of case information on the request--full name, date of birth, case number, A number, date/place of oath and when the applicant expects to be in the U.S. so that another date is not given while the applicant remains abroad. Also, indicate duplicate request in the heading and enclose a copy of your previous request that was sent without the N-445. In the alternative, the applicant can make an infopass appointment as suggested by another colleague.
