A prior immigration violation such as the expiration of a visa is not grounds for denial of the N-400. It is common for USCIS to delay a decision. However, if you are concerned, I recommend you contact a local San Diego immigration attorney who can follow up with your application on your behalf.

It is not uncommon for delay. What you describe does not sound problematic. What did your lawyer say?

It depends on the outcome of your previous detention and how you adjusted. If you have a lawyer that is the best person to answer your question as he/she knows your case and the facts.

I agree with my colleagues.
