USCIS has a mandatory legal duty to make a decision on all immigration applications including the N-400, Application for Naturalization, and the I-485, Application for a green card, and more. U.S. District Court judges have held that courts have jurisdiction to compel USCIS to make a decision on immigration applications that have been unreasonably delayed.
Delays can be caused by extensive FBI “name checks” or the failure of the USCIS to consolidate part of your immigration file. Sometimes cases just fall through the cracks in the system leaving the applicant just waiting forever for a decision.
We can review your immigration case to determine if the filing of a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus is a warranted step to resolve the delay of your citizenship (N-400), green card (I-485) or any other immigration applications.
