Update: USCIS Processing Times for Orphan and Hague Adoption Cases

USCIS, Mar. 13, 2023

"On Nov. 2, 2022 USCIS announced a change in our method for calculating orphan and Hague adoption case processing times. In response to this announcement, we received several questions from stakeholders that we address in this FAQ posted on our USCIS Electronic Reading Room (PDF, 136.04 KB). We know that behind every adoption case is a child and a family, and we take this responsibility very seriously. We are always looking for ways to streamline our adoption-related processing. We will continue to adjudicate intercountry adoption cases as quickly and efficiently as possible and provide you with as much transparency as we can."
