NATURALIZATION DELAYS:

Where Does this Take Us?

This surge will have a serious impact on application processing times for the next couple

of years. As a result, based on our response plan, most customers will wait much longer

to have their applications completed. As we have reported, the average processing time

for naturalization applications has increased from the current average of seven months or

less to approximately 18 months. Family-based adjustment-of-status applications

increased from the current average of six months or less to 12 months. Our two-year

response plan will help us accomplish reducing processing times to six months by the

third quarter of Fiscal Year 2010.

Not fast enough.

Kez/JWolf,

When you filed for your 10 year Green Card, what form did you file and how long did it take? My wife has to file one in December(90 days prior to expiration of current 2 year). Confusing that they give you a 2 year and then

you have to get a 10 year to hold for 1 year and then file for Citizenship.

Thanks in advance for the info.

Billy

Hi Billy,

I am taking the liberty of answering for Kez/JWolf as Jon has other matters to contend with right now.

To file for your ten year unconditional greencard you file the I-751 petition "Removal of Conditions". You can find a whole forum devoted to it here on VJ. There is a list of suggested 'evidence' that you include with the petition; things like tax returns, joint bank account statements; joint credit card statements; joint lease or mortgage; joint loan; joint utility bills; birth certificates of any children born to you, things like that. You want to prove that you have a valid marriage and that you have mingled your personal and financial lives together.

Kez filed to remove her conditions last August 24, and her 10 year green card was approved about 3 weeks ago - so you see it is a longish wait. It can take anywhere from 2 or 3 months to 1 1/2 to 2 years for the 10 year green card to be approved. If your wife becomes eligible to file for citizenship and her 10 year greencard hasn't been approved yet, you can file for citizenship and that will force them to make a decision on the I-751.

I hope this helps. Please drop over to the "Removing Conditions" Forum if you have any additional questions. There are lots of people there willing to help.
