    I was translating for a interviewee yesterday. The interviewer asked him about his daughter's birthday.
    He answered the month and date. But he was not quite sure of the birth year. So he was hesitant.
    The interviewer was saying suddenly that she had to close the interview because the interviewee did not have full information that he needed.
    And then a little bit later, he finally blurted out the birth year. It went smooth after then.
    I've been translated a lot of people at interview, but it was first time that I was almost threatened to go back and return again…..Phew~~~~

    I’m doing my interview soon, my only concern is that I’m not employed at this time since I’m going to school full time and taking care of my daughter while my husband works. I have been employed in the last five years full time but have not been employed since April 2019. Will this be a problem I’m kind of worried?

    Thank you so much for your video. I need guidance. So my interview is next month and I realized that I missed two things in my form: one employer I worked for like a month and half and also I missed one of my professional memberships in part 12. Question 9B. Also I filed online as single never married but two boxes about my spouse boxes were checked mistakenly and not by me. I guess due to online technical issues. My question is: should I mention these amendments and corrections during my interview or should I send an explanation letter to my field office? I really appreciate the help and looking forward to your response. Thank you in advance.

    I became a US citizen in October and I changed my name as well. My new name is on my certificate.
    Questions:
    How do I obtain a true copy of the petition I received and turned in with my green card during my Naturalization ceremony? I've applied for a new SS card.
    Driver's license name change is next. Is my naturalization certificate and new SS card enough or do I require the petition for name change document as well?
