Recommended Posts

Hello guys, 

i would like to share my N400 Hoping someone can give me an advice.

I submitted my n400 at the end of January 2020, biometrics in February, uscis closed because of the pandemic, September 2020 did my interview : Officer handed me a paper saying Recommended for approval , he told me I shall receive the oath letter within 3 weeks... months have passed , I tried calling , going to the Jacksonville office... and they always said to keep waiting... my case is outside the processing time , and I submitted an inquiry, the response was USCIS has reviewed your Service Request.  According to USCIS records, we are unable to move forward with your application until the required background checks have been completed.  At this time, we are unable to determine when the adjudication of your case will be completed and no further action is required from you.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by delays in processing.

I also contacted the Us representative and senator in January but haven’t heard any feedback yet.... yesterday I submitted an inquiry to CIS ombudsman. 
 

thank you in advance for your replies

The quote is pretty clear.  There is no way to waive or expedite the required background checks.

 

Any inquiry from a member of congress/senator/ombudsman will give you the very same information.  None of them will be able to get a prediction of how long the background checks will take.  USCIS  doesn't do that.

Thank you for your reply. I didn’t want to make the story long... the last answer was background check... but the previous communications never mentioned background checks , they would just tell me it’s still within processing times ... Also, I read on a forum, that USCIS is required to clear background check before scheduling an interview. I haven’t been outside the country since the interview ... so what are the checks for ?

The checks are for whatever may be in your background that requires them to fully vet, regardless of whether you've been out of the country recently.

 

New information could conceivably come up after an interview.
