I-751 and N-400 taking forever. Stressing us out

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We filed I-751 in February 2017 and N-400 in April 2018. I-751 was transferred in December 2019 and since then we’ve heard nothing on either case. I’m on my second extension stamp and will need a third early next year if nothing happens. Based on timelines here this seems way too long but I can’t get any help from USCIS. It seems unreasonable that we had to pay so much and can’t even get an answer specific to our case. Does anyone have any insight on what we can or should do? We used an attorney for adjustment of status but did this on our own because she didn’t show up to our interview for adjustment of status.

I have heard the Seattle office is backlogged but this seems way too long. I would set up an appointment to talk with someone at the Seattle office. They're the ones who are handling your cases.

It just says they reviewed biometrics on N 400 in April. The place where I would get a estimated completion date says they’re taking longer than usual and I don’t need to do anything. Everyone on the phone insists it’s normal but based on processing times for other persons on here I know it’s not. My husband even completely forgot we had a case with them because of how long it’s taken. I try not to bring it up too much because it’s really anxiety inducing. I want to be an Air Traffic Controller (we invested heavily in this) and I’m probably going to be too old when, if I ever, get citizenship approved.

On the phone for 30 minutes to set up infopass. No help yet. Can’t do it online anymore.

Have you checked out this forum? It's dedicated to people who have applied for citizenship, whose office is Seattle. The latest post is by a person who just received an interview who filed in May 2019, one month after you did. So perhaps you'll get an interview notice soon.
