One of our Newport Beach clients was just approved for naturalization at the interview. The client, who is originally from Germany, has been a permanent resident for the last three years and married to his wife for that entire time. We applied for naturalization by filing the N-400 in August 2013. We included evidence that the couple has lived together for the last three years along with all the necessary information and documentation.
The client works for a large company and he travels extensively as part of his work. While his travel abroad over the last three years was substantial, he did not spend more than half his time outside the United States over the last three years, so the issue was not problematic at the interview in Santa Ana.
The officer, who I’ve worked with on several naturalization cases, asked questions about travel and marriage along with the civics test questions. My client was well-prepared on what to expect at the interview, and he did an excellent job. At the end of the interview, the officer approved the case.
