Estimated Case Completion Time?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After receiving the I-797C, post submitting the N-400, I set up the online account, and there is a field there that says "Estimated Case Completion" date of September 2018. What does this mean exactly? Is this how long it will take  to get interviewed, or is this the time from filing to citizenship ceremony, or something else?

Don't take the  estimated case completion times to heart----they are notoriously very glitchy and "move" up and down constantly as reported by others (along with myself) here.

 

My case completed in 96 days, and it still read that I had a 9-months estimated completion time between the interview date and oath ceremony.

I'm being processed in the Washington D.C. field office. It seems like they have a fairly large backlog of close to 20k applications. Seems like this might be a record breaking year, or at least close. 

 

I'm surprised they finished in less than 100 days. I thought they touched the cases in order of arrival. Sounds like they might cherry pick the easy cases to get the numbers going.

You can find it here: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Resources/Reports and Studies/Immigration Forms Data/Naturalization Data/N400_performancedata_fy2017_qtr3.pdf 

 

Although it's only data from up to FY Q3. There has been a surge of applications, and they are having the officers work overtime, and are trying to hire more people. But, it's a much bigger backlog than in 2016.

I was surprised too, especially since NY has a large number of applicants.  I did file my N400 online which may have sped things up, and I'm also from Canada which I think made the background check move quicker since Canada and the US share criminal, immigration and border information with each other openly.  I don't know about "easy cases" though...my application wasn't straightforward.
