A: There is no set time for USCIS to respond to this type of request.

If you have not already, you can check your case status, using the N-400 receipt number here: It might show whether your request was recevied.

You can also follow up with USCIS by submitting a case inquiry here:

If niether of those options work you might have to call USCIS Customer Service at 1-800-375-5283 and request an Infopass appointment.

Wait until you find out the status of your reopening request before submitting a new applicaiton.
