application /petition, how long does it take to make the decision ?
USCIS gives itself 3 months after an interview during which to reach a decision.
After 30 days You can schedule an INFOPASS appointment with the local office where you were interviewed, but this will get you nowhere. They will simply not give you a meaningful answer. You have to be patient.
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.
