I have filed a I-751 with waiver in louisville field office 2 years ago, had my interview over a year ago. I have not received anything from them about my case. I went there 6 times and they keep telling me just wait. Can I file a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus in Federal Court??
how long it takes to get the decision after that???
Just because you file a Mandamus does not mean the Judge will automatically order USCIS to make a decision. The standard normally is unreasonable delay and that definition is clear as mud. There are legitimate reasons for delay mostly due to background checks and the CARRP program. However, many times just filing it will get a settlement offer from the government, but careful you may not like the decision. Do this only with an attorney who has experience filing these.
Your lawyer can inform the supervisor at USCIS that you are filing it, and they likely won't want it, and may approve it
Sure, your attorney can file in Federal District Court. Do you have an extra $20,000 to $30,000 to invest in this process?
Hire a lawyer to follow-up with CIS.
