CHALLENGES TO DELAYS IN PROCESSING NATURALIZATION APPLICATIONS
Has it been 120 days since you were interviewed by the USCIS local field office in connection with your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization? You may be facing challenges to delays in processing naturalization applications, but we here at Cohen, Tucker & Ades P.C. can help. When USCIS fails to make a decision on your application for naturalization within 120 days of your naturalization interview, you may request your local U.S. District Court to intervene. The U.S. District Court has the authority to either consider your application for naturalization or send the matter back to USCIS with an order to issue a decision without further delay. Typically, the U.S. District Court directs USCIS to make a decision within so many days. Requesting the U.S. District Court’s intervention can be an effective tool as it pushes USCIS to make a decision on your long-delayed application for naturalization.
