Longer naturalization processing times at most Florida USCIS offices

TPS

It’s no secret that USCIS processing times have drastically increased over the past year. One look at the USCIS processing times website reveals a disturbing picture of government delays in its handling of most immigration cases, showing excessive backlogs at national service centers and local field offices nationwide, including those in South Florida. The reasons for the delays are many, including the Trump administration’s shift of its priorities more to enforcement, which has significantly increased the number of cases in the system. This is the new reality and as such, immigrants embarking on any immigration process should be aware of the lengthy processing times ahead.

Here are the approximate times posted for local USCIS field offices in Florida for Naturalization cases:
