The processing time for Form N-400 (Application for Naturalization) is affected by factors such as your location, current USCIS workload, and the complexity of your case.
According to USCIS statistics, the average processing time for Form N-400 is now approximately 10.5 months. But this time may still vary depending on various circumstances. For example, in some parts of the country, the application processing time can be as little as 6 months, while in other parts of the country, it can be as long as 18 months.
Let's analyze the factors that affect the duration and time of processing the N-400 form:
Location of the applicant. If there are few applications in your area, the processing time will be shorter.
Current USCIS workload. Application processing times are always longer during periods of peak USCIS workload, as well as after changes in immigration law.
The complexity of the applicant's case. Complex cases also require longer processing time. For example, for people with a criminal record or for people who have already been refused.
Also, remember that applicants can always track the status of their Form N-400 application online at the USCIS website.
