Will the 'shut-down' of the government delay the processing of my travel document, and my wife's derivative asylum application?

Asked about 1 year ago - New York, NY

I have done the biometrics for my travel documents, approximately 2 weeks before the U.S government shutdown, and I'm currently waiting for the approval to be issued. Will the shutdown delay the process? I have also applied for i-730 for my wife - her case is in the initial stages of acceptance. Will the shutdown also delay her case from being approved?

    Answered . USCIS, which is fee-funded, has indicated most operations will continue as normal. In practice, there may be somewhat of a slowdown in processing times.
