USCIS, FBI Announce Plan to Eliminate Name Check Backlog

USCIS and the FBI have announced a joint plan to eliminate the name check nightmare that holds up processing of applications, such as for green cards and naturalization.

The agencies say they will obtain their new processing goals “by increasing staff, expanding resources, and applying new business processes,” according to a USCIS press release.

The agencies have set the following milestones for name check processing:

May 2008 – Process all name checks pending more than three years

July 2008 – Process all name checks pending more than two years

Nov. 2008 – Process all name checks pending more than one year

Feb. 2009 – Process all name checks pending more than 180 days

June 2009 – Process 98 percent of all name checks within 30 days and process the remaining two percent within 90 days.

    Is that in addition to the early-published promises by USCIS to adjudicate those cases despite the pending Name Check? Or this means that USCIS cannot deliver on their promise?
    Because I still haven’t heard anything about my case. My Name Check has been pending for over two years.

    Yes, it is in addition to the USCIS policy regarding processing name checks. The new USCIS policy is limited to certain types of applications such as the I-485, but not to naturalization applications. The USCIS/FBI press relates relates to clearance goals for pending name checks for ALL applications, which would include naturalization applications as well.

    A FRIEND OF MINE FILED HIS n 400 IN aPRIL 2002 AND WAS INTERVIEWED ON FEB 12TH 2003 AT GERDEN CITY TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE.

    THESE GUYS HAVE YET NOT MADE A DECISION DUER TO NAME CHECKS.

    NOT SURE WHAT THESE USCIS PUNDITS ARE TALKING/PUBLISHING IN THEIR REPPORTS.
