I had my citizenship interview done back in Dec,6 and its been about 115 days since then and have not received a responce yet.The reason why they did not approve me ob site was because my back ground had no cleared. I passed my civics test. How did I get my interview scheduled without being cleared from background huh
Background checks are notorious for taking a long time and sometimes it can be months if not years. If you are wanting to follow up with USCIS your attorney can advise. If it is after 120 days then you have options but get a good consultation with competent counsel to discuss what your options are including but not limited to mandamus action. USCIS has 120 days from the date of the initial naturalization interview to issue a decision. If the decision is not issued within 120 days of the interview, an applicant may request judicial review of his or her application in district court. Good luck

USCIS has by law/regulation 120 days after an interview during which to render a decision on a naturalization application or any other case. When "background checks' invoked as reason, in L.A. and elsewhere could easily take (much) longer, depending on the nationality and actual "background". You may want to immediately consult with an experienced lawyer in private to explore the options available to you.
