all of the requirements. However, since you didn’t bring some of the documents I’ve asked for, a decision cannot be made today. You will receive a notice in the mail after this interview. Please follow the instructions in the notice and submit all of the documents within 30 days. Here are all of your documents and
here’s a copy of your interview results.
Do you have any questions for me? (Gives the applicant Form N-652: Naturalization Interview Results.) I see. Do you know how long it will take for me to get the notice? Probably a week or two. Okay. Thank you. I don’t have any other questions. Great. I’ll walk you back to the customer service area then. Thank you. You are very welcome. As you can see in this scenario, the application was not approved because the applicant didn’t bring all of the supporting documents. Now she has to wait for the N-14 notice in the mail and then submit the requested documents. That delays her approval. That’s why it’s so important to bring everything with you to the interview. Okay. Now it’s your turn to practice. Are you ready? Let’s get started. Practice Interview: Test your knowledge now How did you do? Is that helpful? Let us know and leave us a comment. We would love to hear from you. See you in the next video.

    I passed mine on Nov 5 and tomorrow I will be at Oath Ceremony. Thank you for your videos. Officer was so nice! He’s deaf so his interpreter translated for him. He asked 6 civics questions first then 1 reading and 1 writing. Lastly, some questions in N-400, didn’t ask about definition of words. Good luck to everyone! I will be American citizen tomorrow! Oh yeahhhhhh

    This was the most helpful video so far because I could get familiar with what I should expect and practice my own answers with question only version. I passed the interview today and I would say your videos were of great help in doing so.

    i hope it’s okay if i reach out to you about this…. since i watch that part about unpaid tax.

    I am about ready to file since october and we are fully paid with IRS since 2015. but upon knowing my husband ( of course letter is address to both of us) stil owe state tax in Maryland (though we didnt live there, he just worked there last 2017 coz he work on the boat).

    I just arranged payment plan with MD state last week and I got the letter. I am thinking of filing online now, ‘though I havent started the payment yet.
    Im just worried of the N-400 fee increase.
    Do you think there will be a problem…
