WASHINGTON – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) today announced a joint plan to eliminate the backlog of name checks pending with the FBI.

USCIS and the FBI established a series of milestones prioritizing work based on the age of the pending name check. The FBI has already eliminated all name check cases pending more than four years.

“This plan of action is the product of a strong partnership between USCIS and the FBI to eliminate the backlogs and to strengthen national security,” said USCIS Director Emilio Gonzalez.

By increasing staff, expanding resources, and applying new business processes, the goal is to complete 98 percent of all name checks within 30 days. USCIS and the FBI intend to resolve the remaining two percent, which represent the most difficult name checks and require additional time to complete, within 90 days or less. The goal is to achieve and sustain these processing times by June 2009.

The joint plan will focus on resolving the oldest pending FBI name checks first. USCIS has also requested that the FBI prioritize resolution of approximately 29,800 pending name checks from naturalization applicants submitted to the FBI before May 2006 where the naturalization applicant was already interviewed.

The target milestones for processing name checks are:

Completion Goal

Category

May 2008 Process all name checks pending more than three years

July 2008 Process all name checks pending more than two years

November 2008 Process all name checks pending more than one year

February 2009 Process all name checks pending more than 180 days

June 2009 Process 98 percent of all name checks within 30 days and process the remaining two percent within 90 days

November 2008 Process all name checks pending more than one year or sooner if your namecheck comes back in the meantime. From what they are saying - your worst case scenario is Nov 2008.

You start pending when you have a confirmed receipt of your file (NOA). The namecheck is generally ordered soon after your NOA receipt notice.

sounds good anyway good luck for all of us and thank u so much :)

We applied 04/04, but the name check always says pending since 08/05. I've always wondered what that meant. I wonder how common that is. If they count our NOA, it's 4 years of waiting. If they count 08/05, it's just 2 1/2 years waiting... So either May 2008 or July 2008. I guess two months isn't much in relation to 4 years...

It looks like we'll need my husband's renewed EAD. His current one expires in May. At least we'll be able to use it for a few months. It won't feel as much like wasted money...

It's funny how perspective changes...


Summer 2001--we met in Manzanillo, Mexico

10/02--129F submitted (We had 1 RFE)

7/03--Interview in Ciudad Juarez

2/15/04--Married

4/2/04--AOS submitted

8/23/04--Interview in Chula Vista, CA (approved pending name check)

5 EADs, 3 APs, multiple Senators' inquiries and infopass appts, 2 AOS biometrics,

and one move to Seattle later...

3/3/08--AOS Biometrics renewal in Seattle

6/9/08--10 year green card arrived in the mail. My husband is no longer in immigration limbo and is a realio, trulio permanent resident! It says he's been a resident since 04/17/2008.

1/17/11--Apply for Citizenship
