    Answered . USCIS does not have any deadlines that it is required to meet. It could be days, weeks, months, or years. If you have an attorney working with you on the case, consult with your attorney to inquire about what the issues might be that are causing the delay. If you don't have an attorney, I suggest that you obtain the services of an immigration attorney to try to figure out what is causing the delay.
