US citizenship paperwork

Irving, TX |

I sent in my N-400 Application yesterday, 4 years and 9 months completed on oct 292013. Exact 5 years will be up on Jan 29,2014. I have fulfilled all the requirements for being eligible to apply. What are the next steps? Is it reasonable to expect for me to get citizenship by feb, 2014? My friend told that they gave him the oath the same day as finger printing. What are normal time frames? Thanks a lot..rgds

  1. It takes about 30 days from prints, and interviews and oath ceremony vary greatly depending on where you live.

    The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.

  2. 1) Fingerprints, 2) USCIS interview, 3) hopefully a recommendation for approval, and 4) hopefully an oath ceremony where you will be given your naturalization certificate. The process can take a few months.

  3. Normal processing times can be found here

    No attorney-client relationship is created or implied by this communication.

  4. Typically: receipt notice followed by fingerprints followed by interview notice. Whether oath ceremony is on the same day as the interview, depends on the District Office (some do it and some do not).
