    In my experience in different States and District offices, it takes anywhere from 3-4 to 6 months form the filing till the Oath ceremony. Of course, it could be longer, especially for someone with past criminal issues, or based on specifics of an individual situation.

    6 to 12 months. It depends on the USCIS Office where you file.

    A friend in West Virginia just got hers after 5 and 1/2 months from start to finish.

    It depends if there's no problem with your application, you can wait for two years or more to be citizen.
