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."
Thanks!I included husband's SSN, Alien # and the N400 receipt #, together with a copy of the Case Status search online. I thought this information should be sufficient, considering a basic search of the N400 receipt # in their system would serve to verify status, but I would be remiss not to follow the advice of expert attorneys, so I re-sent the letter (noted it was a duplicate request and included mailing information), together with the original N445. I considered an Infopass appointment, but I forgot to have my husband sign an Authorization letter, and I didn't want to take the time off work to go all the way to Baltimore only to be told that I can't be helped because I'm not the applicant / petitioner (he filed based on his own qualifications, not on marriage). Duplicate request sent via USPS Certified, guaranteed delivery by 10/25/12, together with: Original N445, Copy of previous letter with mailing details, Copy of husband's Resident Card, Copy of my US Passport and Copy of our Marriage Certificate.
