Besides handling interviews on non-asylum applications, field offices arrange citizenship events and provide limited information (Detailed information is available on the USCIS website). More information about field offices, including field office locations, is available on the following page.

Case Processing Times

The USCIS Gives processing times for the various application it receives. This time can be in the form of a range (as given below) or in the standard format. Here is the time it takes to process the N-400, N-600, and N-600K applications at the Oakland Park field office:

  • Citizenship and Issuance of Certificate Under Section 322 (N-600K): 6.5 months to 25.5 months
  • Certificate of Citizenship (N-600): 6.5 months to 16 months
  • Naturalization (N-400): 6 months to 13 months

As is clear from these processing times, your case can take months and even multiple years to process, depending on the application.

For each case, however, the USCIS provides a date on which you can ask about the progress of your case. You can find this date on the same USCIS page as the processing times, given as the case inquiry date. If the date mentioned as “receipt date” on your notice comes earlier than the inquiry date, then you are entitled to ask about the delay in the processing of your case. You don’t have to call or visit the Oakland Port office to ask as you can do it online through an e-request.

International Processing Times

If you’ve submitted your application to an international office, you may find its processing times from the following section of the USCIS site. Currently, the section only has processing times for the following forms: I-130, I-131, and I-730.
