How to Prevent Long Delays in Your Green Card or Citizenship Application Process

When you submitted your green card application or naturalization application and had your interview and exam, you probably didn’t know that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) could delay a decision for months or even years.

Lengthy delays can be the result of something as simple as a paperwork error, a lost folder or a heavy load of adjustment of status and naturalization cases, or something more complex and serious, such as a fraud investigation.

A lawsuit will help in any event to expedite your case so it does not linger for many more months or years without a decision. Often, a lawsuit is not only the best way, but rather, it is the only way to speed up your lingering green card or citizenship application.

What Is an Unreasonable Delay?

You don’t have to be the victim of unreasonable delays, because you have the legal right to sue the U.S. government to stop the delays in situations like these:

  • It’s been over 120 days since your naturalization interview/examination and you haven’t received a decision.
  • It’s been over 120 days since you submitted additional requested documents and you haven’t received a decision,
  • An unreasonable amount of time has passed since you filed your green card application or since the date of your green card or I-130 (marriage based petitions, especially) interview, and there is still no decision.
