By the time you’ve reached the hearing level, and had a judge actually hear your case, it is probably going to be at least two years from the date of your initial application, unfortunately. The judge ordinarily will make a decision within two months to four months. We have seen cases where the judge will wait six months or a year. We’ve seen cases where the judge retired in the interim, and never got around to issuing an order. That creates major problems, in terms of the need possibly for another hearing, and more waiting time, but that’s how the system works.
