I have been to interview on Nov 13 but still didn’t receive any decision from USCIS. I would like to ask how long does it take to get a green card in Chicago
Pretty much depends on the strength and weaknesses of your case - we know nothing about your case nor was any of us there with you at the interview, as well as the particular officer who interviewed you and finally on how busy the Chicago office currently is.
In any event, USCIS has by Regulation up to 120 days after an interview during which to render a decision on a case.
If my answer is the "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL" please mark it accordingly. Fluent in 7 languages. Certified Specialist in U.S. Immigration & Nationality Law, The State Bar of California, Board Of Legal Specialization. 26 years of successful immigration law experience. The answer above is only general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
Anywhere from six months to ten years or even longer.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
We had clients who waited for their decisions for several years. In some cases we had to file a Write of Mandamus to get a successful decision on a pending perfect adjustment case with excessive delay.
Without working on your case or knowing potential impediments to a decision it is impossible to suggest a timeframe for your decision. Perhaps, you may consider a consultation with a willing counsel?
