CIS has issued the latest processing time goal and report here. In a 2007 fee rule, CIS aimed to reduce processing times by 20% by 2009. CIS is meeting its goals in some ares, e.g. EAD applications, I-129 petitions (2 month goal) and I-131 applications (3 month goal). In some other popular cases, processing times are well behind the goals, e,g, I-140 petitions (9 month processing vs 4 month goal), I-751 Removal of Conditions (9 month processing vs 6 month goal), Adjustment of Status for family (7.3 month processing vs 4 month goal). We have seen many cases take less than the posted processing times, especially naturalization applications. However there are also cases taking longer.
