Passed exam:- answered ALL correctly, but a decision cannot yet be made (Naturalization)

Asked over 2 years ago - New York, NY

I passed the exam about 6 weeks ago, yet a decision cannot be made. The interviewer kept stressing why I'm I not down there with my hubby: (out of state) where as I work in NY and he has been deployed twice, so I moved to NY to be with family. I told my husband about it and he got very angry and said he will contact the officer personally, as he gave me the form with his name on it. I told him I used to live down there, but came to NY as he was deployed and I've been a house wife, since he asked where was I working before.

    Answered . It sounds as though you applied as a spouse of a U.S. citizen. In such
    a case you must establish that you are living in martial union. Based
    upon what you have written, my guess is the adjudicating officer is
    having a problem with the marital union requirement. Consult with an
    experienced immigration attorney who can review your case in detail and
    advise you how best to proceed.

    Answered . Did the officer give any official indication (in the form of a notice) as to what, if any, additional information or evidence you would have to present to allow for final processing of your case?

    The officer may have had issues over your residency.
