Default N-400 TSC Update

Hello All:

I submitted my application on July 28 to beat the fee increase. As of today, I have not heard anything back - no NOAs, no RFEs, no cashed checks.

Folks who submitted along the same time, are you all experiencing the same delays? I am hoping this is related to the crush of apps that dropped at the service center doorstep.

Thank you in advance.

not sure where you are but my son's in san diego and he submitted his N400 in June. he's had his fingerprints last month.

i would question why your cheque has not yet been cashed. seems in most instances that's the first thing they do however July 28, it's only 5 weeks back so maybe there is a huge backlog in your location. good luck.

There was a press release from USCIS, you may find it on uscis.gov, that basically said "due to the high number of filings, we are late in sending out NOAs and entering the cases into the system."

Another forumite posted the link a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, you could have fallen into this pit. This press release listed the Service center by petition type and the date that they were current on. You may want to go the website and see if there is an update (or just to read this memo).

Good luck!

Thank you so much for the helpful info. The 8/24 press release says that TSC has processed N-400 Apps up to 7/15; I guess we are getting there.

I reckon things are chugging at the TSC. I filed my N-400 recently - got my return receipt to say they had received it on the 16th of August - check not been cashed yet either - it was cashed within 2 weeks when I filed my I-751, so I'm guessing its the backlog.

They are definitely running with a huge backup, but the backup is with entering the apps into th system and sending out the receipt notices, in all of the cases I've heard about the check has been cashed, but everyone was waiting on the receipt notifications.

It's probably to soon to request an Infopass appointment, but I'd definitely recommend checking out the press release section of the USCIS website to see what dates that are working on to send out the receipt notices and go from there.

Did you send the app and supporting docs certified mail, and have you tracked the shipping to make sure it got there?

They're calling it the 'frontlog' instead of backlog, since the delay is in acknowledging the receipt of application packages. Interesting terminology.

The USCIS homepage now has a link under "important alert" on the right hand side to give weekly updates (every friday) on the status of application receipts. The last update was posted on September 7, 2007.

The 9/14 Alert says that TSC is processing apps from 7/16 - great! My one was mailed on 7/28 - we are getting there.

Also, with my, there still has not been any sign of the cashed check - I did receive the certified letter notification back 3 days after the package was mailed.

I wouldn't take too much notice of the processing dates on the USCIS website. My daughter applied at the end of Aug 06...had her bio's done and received her interview letter...while the website was showing they were processing applications received before June 06.

The 8-24 receipting notice showed TSC processing applications received on or before 7-15. So, it took them 3 weeks to move 1 day? Either they are really backed up or those dates are screwed up.

Mine went into VSC on July 27th too, and they cleared the check around August 15th, but I haven't had any NOA or any correspondence from them yet still.

This is exactly right. TSC receives hundreds of applications each day... do you seriously believe they get through all those applications on a daily basis?

I completely fail to understand why you're so surprised!
