The US immigration process can be extremely frustrating, and to add to it, processing times are very unpredictable. It can take weeks to months to file an immigration case and to receive confirmation that your case is processing. Once your application is in processing, it can take months to years to receive a final decision on your case. Even then, it can be very difficult to get a clear answer on where your application stands. Here, we discuss what your options are if your immigration case is taking longer than normal below.
If you filed for US Citizenship through naturalization, and it has been over 4 months since your interview with no response, then you have recourse.

We discuss how to get a decision on your US Citizenship case here.
