Starting on January 4th, USCIS will start using a specific date format rather than weeks or months for their updated Service Center Processing Time Reports which are published monthly. They are trying to make the reports more specific and more understandable. MVP Law Group publishes a monthly blog entitled; “Updated Service Center Processing Times” that includes links to the USCIS Processing Time Information for each of the different Service Centers.
