The interview was in Orlando on March 25th 2013. I have never had a criminal case. Thank you
Hello. The Immigration and Nationality Act provides that if USCIS does not make a decision on a N-400 within 120 days (4 months) of the interview, then the applicant may seek a review of the application by filing a petition with the Federal Court. I regularly file such suits after evaluating the applicants case and if I feel that it is appropriate to do so. Regards.
Since your case has been pending in excess of 120 days you have the right to file suit in U.S. District Court and request the Court to adjudicate your application. Whether this or any other action is a wise thing to do will depend on the specific facts of your case. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case with you to look for any factors which may be causing the delay and what actions can be taken to resolve then,
As my colleagues stated, after 4 months in pending status, you may file a suit in federal court (a mandamus action) in order to force the government to act on your N-400. This is expensive due to the associated attorney´s fees, so I strongly suggest you first make an Infopass appointment at the USCIS where your interview was held to see if you can obtain more information and perhaps move things along. Best regards.
