Immediate Relative Visas, for spouses, parents and children under the age
of 21, have been processing at a slower rate than accustomed to. According
to a recently published report in the New York Times, this current delay
is the result of USCIS using resources on Deferred Action actions (DACA)
cases according to administration officials. With these delayed processing
times, families are experiencing unexpected separation from loved ones
while also dealing with extra expenses such as maintaining two households,
travel and other economic hardships. Instead of waiting periods of several
months, many petitioners are now waiting up to, and sometimes over, one
year for approval.
While USCIS delays do occur, continued delay on your case may require legal
assistance. The Ohio immigration attorneys at Robert Brown LLC are well
versed in Mandamus Actions as well as USCIS processing to finalize your
immigrant visa applications.
