USCIS Processing Time Information for our
CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER
Posted: September 14, 2009
Instructions on Using the Table
Below is a chart that shows the Form Number, Form Name and Processing Times for all of the forms that are processed at that
office. (Note that not all offices process all types of applications and petitions.)
Find the particular form number (in the left column) or form name (in the center column) in which you are interested. In the right
column you will find either a timeframe in months or an exact date.
If the office is processing a particular type of application in less time than our processing goal, you will see the processing times
expressed in months (for example, if the office is processing naturalization applications in less than our 5 month goal, the processing
time will state “Five Months”). However, if that office is taking longer than our processing goal to handle the form type in question, you
will see the filing date (e.g., “April 10, 2003”) of the last case we processed on the date the website chart was last updated. The
charts are updated on or about the 15th day of each month.
IMPORTANT: If your receipt notice date is earlier then the processing date shown, we suggest you call our USCIS
Customer Service Office at 1-800-375-5283 for assistance.
We offer a variety of services after you file. For example, for most kinds of cases you can check the status of your case online.
