[quote=“Northcoast Surfer”][quote=“Satellite TV”]Well then I would have made a formal complaint. Nowhere is there any requirement to even be married to apply for Citizenship as others here can attest. So how did they make this demand? Did he show any identification?[/quote]I haven’t made a formal complaint, yet. I’m just collecting evidence and biding my time in the event I need to use my personally acquired “guanxi”! I also have his full name, his office phone number, and his personal mobile phone number, too! I find it very amusing that I seem to know immigration laws better than the “professional” NIA officers. Basically, I received a phone call from the NIA and they told me that they had received my completed naturalization package and that all they needed to do was complete it by having the required home visit. I asked why and they said it was to confirm that my marriage to my wife was genuine and that we were living together as husband and wife! At this point, I just couldn’t resist allowing this. An actual NIA officer coming to my house to investigate my marriage, my home, and my wife! Oh boy, how exciting. An opportunity to destroy this little shit’s self-esteem and his feeling of self-worth by exposing his incompetence! How could I resist!?! I’ll show you the video sometime…it’s absolutely hillarious!
[quote=“Satellite TV”]Since when are you required to take pictures of your home? I have other friends doing citizenship applications now and they have never had visits from the NIA. Nor has anyone I know who is applying need to show pictures of their home. What would that prove anyways?[/quote]I don’t know. It’s so funny, but I couldn’t resist allowing it to proceed. I’ve got complete video footage of it. The agent wanted to take the following pictures; a picture of my wife and I sitting together in our living room, a picture of my wife and I drinking tea at our dining table, a picture of the matrimonial bed in our bedroom, and finally a picture of my wife and I arm and arm standing outside in front of our home’s main outer wall with the green government address plate. We only allowed him to take pictures that didn’t include my wife or I. He initially told us that we HAD to be in the picture or else it proved nothing. My wife ripped him a new asshole and said, “WTF does having us in the picture prove?! Take your F’ing pictures and GTFO of my house! We’ve been cordial enough!” :roflmao:
NIA Agent “Wimpy Boy” must have given us a passing evaluation because I just received my Candidature Certificate for Naturalization this past Tuesday! :discodance: :bravo:
“Smithers, release the hounds!”
NCoaster, are you a US citizen? Reason for asking is this: I am a Taiwanese Cdn working and living in TN at the moment with my Taiwanese, newly minted wife. My company ‘appears’ to be under way to process our green card, but one never knows in this economy.
In any case, I’ve been researching on green cards, etc and I came across a spiel on the US government website stating that if you get citizenship with another country, you may be renounced or stripped of your US citizenship (in another words, you can only choose one)… this does not apply if you are a citizen of another country and applying for US citizenship. In another words… if you’re a US citizen, you may need to give up your US citizenship for the other country’s but if you’ve already had two other country’s citizenship and then apply for US citizenship, that’s ok.
So, if you’re applying for Taiwanese naturalization, will you have to give up US citizenship? Other US citizens in the same boat should chime in here.
