N400 estimated completion time September 2019 ?

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We filed N400 application - state of NJ 

and we got a message today that estimated completion time is September 2019

 

I thought it takes only 3-4 months..why it says 10 months completion time?

 

Also, message showed we are doing back ground check ..what does that mean?

^^^ That's the key word. It is only an estimation of the completion time and could be before then. They are anticipating a heavy workload for Naturalization filers.

estimates are just that .. estimates. No time frame is guaranteed.

 

They do background checks to make sure you are not a criminal or have undesirable connections.

May be OP's friends or relatives naturalized during the old regime when it didn't take such a long time and he/she must have asked them!

Depends on your country of origin, (Muslim or  non-Muslim country), Your background check, how common your name is , and how busy you USCIS office is.

There are hundreds factors. No one in the world can tell you when USCIS will complete your application.

Times have changed, even for Newark, which is a fast office, relatively speaking.

 

I did my N400 in the summer of 2014 and I had my passport in 4.5 months from the day I mailed in my application at the post office. Same day oath definitely helped.

 

I would expect around 10 months now.


1. I went through Diversity Lottery Green Card and Citizenship application processes 

2. My spouse went through K1 (I-129F)  and AOS (I-485) 

3. About to file ROC (I-751) for my spouse

Diego! Awesome. Do you happen to know what estimated time it gave originally on her online uscis account?
