The field office handles cases of applicants from the following counties:

  • Camden

  • Cumberland

  • Cape May

  • Gloucester

  • Monmouth

  • Mercer

  • Ocean

  • Salem

If you live in one of these counties, then the Mount Laurel field office will handle your case. However, this is not set in stone because in some cases the USCIS may forward your case to another office to improve processing times. If this happens, then you might receive communication – your interview date, for instance – from that office instead of the one where you applied.

Case Processing Times

The USCIS provides processing times in months. For some application types, they provide a range, while for others they use their standard method. The ranges given below are the current processing times for these applications at the Mount Laurel field office:

  • N-400 (Naturalization): 9.5 to 16.5 months
  • N-600 (Certificate of Citizenship): 6.5 to 16 months
  • N-600K (Citizenship and Issuance of Certificate Under Section 322): 6.5 to 25.5 months

There is a lot of variation between the processing times of different applications and also between the median and majority times for each form type. According to the USCIS, the months mentioned first is the time for completing 50% of the cases, while the months mentioned second is the time for 93% of them.

Application Fees

Different fees apply to immigrants coming to or living in the US. One of these fees is the USCIS immigrant fees for people coming to the country as permanent residents. This fee covers your processing and Green Card. You can pay the fee online by providing your A-Number and DOS Case ID.

Note that you can also ask a family member, attorney, etc. to pay the fee on your behalf. More information on paying the USCIS immigrant fees is available on the following page.

How you pay your form filing fees will also depend on whether you are inside or outside the U.S. If you live in the country or its territory, you may be able to pay the fee online, by check, at the field office, etc. For international filing, you should check the website for information, including the office location, that’s specific to your application.

The USCIS does not refund form filing and biometric fees. A filing fee waiver is available in some cases. To be considered for the waiver, you must meet some eligibility requirements.
