Hearing Wait Times

September 30, 2015

The news is in and it’s not good.

The wait time for a hearing decision in the Jacksonville area is now 602 days, up from 558 days six months ago.  Somehow, Jacksonville is only #147 on the list of 163 offices in the US, which is an improvement from six months ago, when the office was #157.  Fort Lauderdale and Fort Meyers are also posting long wait times with (643 days and 633 days respectively), but the worst office in the nation is Miami with a wait time of 694 days.

Let’s give a cheer for Alexandria, Viriginia, the office that is processing cases the fastest at just 320 days!  In second place is Metairie, Louisiana with just 348 days (half of Miami’s wait time), but curiously, Metairie was processing cases the fastest six months ago in only 279.  Metairie, what happened???

Remember, these are just average times – some cases are processed much faster and others even slower.
