Boston MA - N-400 TimeLine

There were a few places that did the naturalization ceremonies in MA but it is a royal pain how long they take to schedule these. Back in 2010, I had to wait 3.5 months for my naturalization after passing the interview. They gave me my oath ceremony letter right after passing the interview. Seems like things have only gotten worse since 2010. I had my naturalization ceremony at Mechanics Hall in Worcester and no, it was not because I lived in or near Worcester. I lived in the Boston city area at the time.

I have read somewhere from another person's experience that if you want a faster Judicial Oath Ceremony, you should take matters into your own hands. What this person did was to call up most of the Judges (District Court?), who can perform such matter, & to ask/request if s/he could perform the service for her. That was how she got hers done quicker than waiting for the normal time frame it takes this type of ceremony to be scheduled. Depending on your DO, it could be a very long time (5-13 months).

I had my N400 interview last week. I passed the English questions without an issue.

Quick background: I was issued 10 year bar and deported in 2005. I had to apply for I601 and I212 (waivers) prior to returning to US. The reason I was deported was because I had overstay after deportation order. I returned to US 2010.

  1. Here is my experience of same day interview and oath in Seattle.

    Interview

    My interview was at 9:00 but I left early (6:30) since I live 30 miles away and traffic is a nightmare around there. I was lucky to bypass two bad crashes because I was listening to the radio and got to a Starbucks near there for breakfast.
