Naturalization/citizenship advice needed

If anyone works in this field or went through this process, I would appreciate any advice. Due to a new possible job, CPD, I need to become a citizen ASAP. I know itís not that easy. I have been a permanent resident of this country for over 15 years and didnít need to become one until now. I already filled out the N-400 form and ready to file. I just need to know how much it costs, $280 I think?? and where and when in Chicago do I go file? I was thinking about going through an agency, but I figure I cut out the middle man, save some money and time, and go right down to the office downtown and do it myself. Sometimes I see many people standing downtown really early to get into the building.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think you need to go to their website, or look at the docmentation that comes with the application first.

The first step which is submiting the application with the photos and photocopies of your documents can be done thru the mail. Just do it certified mail.

That starts the process. Next thing is the finger prints, you will get an appoinment to a place near you and have that done.

Then you get an appointment for the interview (constitution test like questions) and you pass that and we go into the oath ceremony and you are done.

The only bad thing is that the process will take between 6 and 12 month. No way of making it faster than that. The good thing is because it is an election year, there might be a little more speed in the process.

The fee I believe you have right, but look at the latest application that you can download online for accurate information.

HTH... and ask any questions, if I know I will answer.

That would pretty much be exact as described. Except the wait time is now longer. Because of all the crap with 9/11... they are really taking care and checking everyone out before they make any mistakes again. It can take up to 16 months now.
