I was delayed for 2 days. When I called, The DOJ called me back that day. I was told that they were swamped. I said that I understand, and thanked them for their time.
You know, I wonder if someone just droped a stack of new forms on top of my form, causing a delay. ALSO, Maybe the delays are based on your location and the amount of requests. I have a common name, and that could also cause a delay as well.
