Immigration and Mandamus Actions: What You Should Know

A writ of mandamus is simply a court order that compels a government agency or government official to execute a duty that they are legally required to complete under the law. In the context of immigration, mandamus actions are used to get USCIS or other government agencies to process a petition or application that has been delayed for an unreasonable period of time. Unfortunately, the immigration process can be frustratingly slow. Mandamus lawsuits offer a solution. 

As an example, imagine that you are seeking naturalization. You need a petition processed, but it has been stuck month after month. Even more unnerving, you are not getting any useful updates on why it is taking so long to get a response. Many people have dealt with similar problems. You can file a mandamus action to get an answer on your petition. To be clear, a mandamus action does not compel a positive response. Instead, it is simply the best available legal tool to get immigration agencies to process an application that was delayed.
