Something unusual is happening at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services...they are approving certain cases faster than ever before!
Although a significant number of cases are backlogged, they seem to be processing 2022 cases faster than "older" cases.
This is frustrating because all cases need to move faster, particularly the older cases.
Now is a good time to apply for a green card or naturalization.
We don't know how long this good trend will last!
We just had a naturalization case approved in 6 months at the New York Field City Office!
However, the Case Processing Times for the New York City Field says it takes 16 months to process naturalization cases!
The case processing times are unreliable.
Here's what happened in our case...
Client was a lawful permanent resident for three years and ready to apply for naturalization.
He was eligible to apply for naturalization early because he obtained a green card through marriage.
We filed the naturalization application on June 16, 2022.
We included proof of bona fide marriage such as bank statements, utility bills, vehicle and insurance documents, lease agreements, and more.
The client was interviewed on December 7, 2022.
His case was approved the same day, and he will take his oath in a couple of weeks!
