USCIS National Processing Time Goal is not 6 months.

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just noticed this and thought I'd bring it to your attentions. This indicates USCIS expects your file to take 6 months to process. The four service centers are still averaging 5 months to process the files. But I suspect that will change quickly and reflect the 6 months national average. This makes me depressed but atleast I can set my goals realistically. I was hoping I'd get my NOA2 in 2.5 - 3 months. But that's not a realistic goal anymore.

zut alors! I meant to type now, not not.

I agree with you but I also don't agree with you. Why? Because it's USCIS every case goes with it's own luck.....and come out of it with it's own luck.....avg time is 3 months but it may take less & it may take more..........

Right, average time is not and has not been 5 months. Anything read giving that indication needs to be carefully read again. I doubt you'll see the word "average" in anything from USCIS. If you do, it's still wrong.

I hope you're both right. But I was thinking along the line that if USCIS says the average is 5 months and most people got their file done in 3 months, then now that uscist says 6 months, now it will really takes 3.6 months now. Still an increase. But I hope I'm utterly and truly wrong in this. This is one time when being wrong will feel so good.

Again, did you actually see the word "average" used by USCIS? If not, you'll feel a lot better if you stop making up information and interpret what your read "literally".

I didn't make up information and interpret it incorrectly other than what it is. They increased the goal.

Trust me, it was a toad and it was staring at me and it croacked. So I am pretty sure it's a toad or a big tadpole.

Thank you. The "national average" will include the outliers and those who delay or fail to respond to RFE's that skew the average. An appropriate expectation is from 90 to 110 days, without RFE and only a few days more than that with a prompt accurate response to any RFE. Certainly some cases take longer.

Is it possible that the time frame got a little longer because there were a larger number of March filers? I'm just speculating but from looking at the Igor data it seems that there might be a larger group of March filers. Maybe because of Valentines Day weddings? April filers count seems much lower. But of course there is no way to know for sure because everyone is not registered with VJ and not everyone has entered their timelines. It's just a thought.

I think you should contact them. The reason being its already 5+ months and you are going into 6 month since your NOA1. Even if the new processing time is 6 months, you will be there soon as well. Just my thoughts.

I understand your frustration with the wait. I Believe USCIS has specific guidelines they have been given to complete a case,"6 months". With them having an average of 5 but a goal of 6, we should just be thankful. As I think you have looked at some timelines of other people since you had a hope of 2.5-3 months, to offset the quickness of those petitions, there has to be some that are taking 7 or more months. Let's just hope that it is not those people who have taken the time to sign up, read and learn from this site.

I've always thought filing went up this time of year because of tax returns and people having funny money to spend..
