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

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.

  1. Best answer

    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.

  2. What is your question? I suggest that you make an inquiry?

    (213) 394-4554 x0 Mr. Shusterman is a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) with over 35 years of immigration experience. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

  3. 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.

  4. It seems to me the officer is questioning the bona fides of your marriage
