I filed an H-4 EAD renewal application about 4 months ago. I have heard that the USCIS frequently is taking 1 year or more to adjudicate these applications. Can I sue the USCIS to get them to adjudicate my EAD application?04 Nov 2021
You can file a writ of mandamus against the USCIS to try to force the agency to adjudicate your case. If the court agrees that there has been an unreasonable delay in adjudicating the case, the judge could order the USCIS to complete its adjudication.
That being said, in recent months, we have seen improvements in processing times for H-4 and EAD applications. We have been seeing many such cases processed in 5-to-7 months. While this is still not ideal, it is significantly faster than processing times seen through much of the pandemic. (04.Nov.2021)
