N400 Estimate Completion - 26 months!

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed my N400 application over the weekend (online), and on the case page that the estimated completion date is July 2021 (26 months). This is way longer than the processing times listed on the USCIS. Any insight from others who have filed online (versus by mail to service center)?

Thank you!

 

I did notice that under the Case Information there is a "waiting period" (now showing 27 days). I assume given that I filed online that it is currently with the National Service Center, and this will be delegated to the Dallas office once the waiting period is over.

 

I didn't expect it quickly, but I was kind of surprised by what was showing on my history.

Don't hold the estimated case completion times to heart---mine said 18 months, and I completed my oath 96 days after I filed (online).

You'll find that the estimated time will jump around a bit...but you can expect your notice to complete the next step of biometrics in a couple of weeks or so, just fiyi---best of luck with your filing.

If you filed online, it skipped the service center..

 

I think the 27 days thingy is before you can request info on this. They have 30 days to respond. In your case to acknowledge they recieved the application in mail (unless you are already able to download the PDF) and next step is FP for BC

I feel your pain.  I applied in late April, my field office is New Orleans.  My original estimate was 20 months, after my bio apt, it went down to 18 months.  However most folks say this is worse case.  Either way, like with all of the steps before in my immigration journey,  you file, put your best case forward and then go about your life. Eventually something will happen.😊

Hi James,

 

My N400 said 26 months also and I completed it in 1 year and I had my Oath 6 days later.   Good luck and don't worry about the time line, it is scary but it is all good.

We both have same local field (Dallas, TX) - I applied last month and my current estimate is June 2021. Based on recent timelines for completed case, it is anywhere from 12-14 months for Dallas, TX. It can speed up or slow down - just keep following timeline for applications filed in same local field before yours to get good idea. 

Once you receive biometrics appointment, I suggest early walk-in for biometrics to speed up your case by 1-2 weeks :P

Different office, but our estimated completion was 16-21 months and depending on when and where they do they oath, that is going to be bang on accurate. The interview was about 15 months after filing and the oath is going to be anywhere from 2-6 months after that.


3/2/18  E-filed N-400 under 5 year rule

3/26/18 Biometrics

7/2019-12/2019 (Yes, 16- 21 months) Estimated time to interview MSP office.

26 months seems an absurdly long time to have to wait. I hope it happens for you much quicker!

At the end of the first quarter of FY 2019, there were more than 700,000 non-military N-400s pending in the system.......there is a long queue.

It’s not so much the number but the failure to allocate adequate resources to the processing of citizenship applications. Nobody waited this long 2-3 years ago. It’s been getting progressively worse. It’s also extremely unfair that people are disadvantaged simply for living in a particular location.
