USCIS Processing Backlogs Cause Delays and Uncertainty for Lawful Immigrants

We have written previously about the measures the Trump administration has taken to build its “invisible wall” to deter legal immigration.  One such action has been to significantly delay the processing times of adjudicating a typical immigration application.  According to a recent analysis of USCIS data by the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association (AILA), the average case processing time for all application types has increased 46 percent since 2016!

We are proud to have succeeded in getting our clients to the front of the line for expedited processing of applications for those situations that meet the government’s criteria. For example, USCIS approved our expedite request for an investor who had urgent business travel.  Our office has also successfully enlisted a congressional representative to expedite an employment authorization card for a key employee.

In all cases, we work with our clients to prepare a quality product as quickly as possible, in order to reduce the wait time that we can control. We also ensure that all applications are thorough and complete, so that no additional delays are added to the processing time.
