Slowdowns in the United States immigration system often leave individuals with minimal options as they wait for their case to reach immigration court. Your case could be delayed due to background checks, administrative delays, or unexplained delays. If your wait exceeds federally-set limits, you can compel USCIS to make a final decision in a timely manner. If you’ve been waiting long enough, we will help you get the answers you need.
Fight Immigration Delays And Get Your Case Heard
The stress of waiting for your immigration case to be processed can be overwhelming, particularly when the process drags on for months or even years without an update. Legally, the government is supposed to hear and decide on immigration cases in a reasonable amount of time. However, it often doesn’t work out that way in real life.
In many cases, delays occur because of security checks and name checks run by the FBI. Security policies have left many people targeted by immigration officials, leading to multiple background checks and investigations that drag out processing times and leave innocent people waiting for updates.
Long Processing Times
Even if your name hasn’t been flagged for extensive background checks or reviews, you may still find yourself waiting far too long for information on your application. Processing times have increased considerably in recent years, creating a backlog of cases at the vast majority of immigration offices.
In some situations, the delay is not due to security checks, a backlogged office, or missing information in your immigration file—it’s simply because your file was lost. Due to the backlog occurring across the country, it’s easy for offices to lose track of files.
To fight delays and get an answer regarding your immigration case, you need an immigration lawyer who is ready to get to the bottom of it and help you move forward. If necessary, we will file a writ of mandamus that compels the government to take action and make a decision on your case.
