USCIS General Processing Times Information

After completing your form and submitting it, the USCIS will review your application for completeness. Once it is accepted, you will receive a Receipt Notice, along with your Receipt Number that you can use to get additional information regarding the status of your application.

The estimated processing time for Form N-600 varies due to the interview process at a USCIS field office.

The local office or field office where your will attend your interview depends on where you live.

USCIS Local Offices

The local offices are mainly responsible for dealing with the immigration applications during the interview stage.

There are two type of applications that more often than not end up in the local offices: Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status and Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. As you can see from the table above, there is no public information regarding the processing times of the I-751 Form. These times vary greatly across the U.S.. As it depends on the local office, the processing variation can be up to over a month. To give you an idea of the variation range, here is an example: an interview can be arranged for up to a week, after the form has been received by the Local Office, all the way to up to a few months.
