The USCIS is processing must cases in about six months. I have been practicing for over 15 years. Our immigration law firm has been in the immigration field for more than 45 years. We have handled cases with experience, integrity, and good effect. We offer payment plans with no interest.

It depends on your USCIS jurisdiction. In Southern CA for the most part, you can count on 3 to 9 months with a well prepared application. Delays usually come from lack of knowledge when eligibility and admissibility are not established, among other things. Good luck!

The process varies at USCIS offices across the nation. Here in California it takes about 4 to 6 months from the date of filing to the oath taking ceremony.

The average time to process an application for U.S. Citizenship is between 9-12 months, once eligibility is established. And with 5 years as a legal permanent resident, you are eligible right now. If you wish the help of an attorney (and you do need one to avoid a problem caused by mistakes on even a simple application), please feel free to call or e-mail, to set up an appointment to have an in-person or phone consultation.

    That depends on where you live. In San Francisco, it is about three months before interview and another for the swearing in ceremony.
