Good day guys, I don't know if I should be excited or a wait for the mail confirmation but when I checked the MyUSCIS case status today it says

"My Case was approved. On April 3, 2015, we approved your Form I-130, Immigrant Petition for Relative, Fiance(E), or Orphan, Receipt Number *************. We will mail your approval notice. Please follow the instructions in the notice. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address."

The thing is, it's been less than a month since I filed. Is that even possible?? I didn't receive an e-notification (email or text) and I was thinking maybe it's a glitch in the system? According to the update it says last updated 4/3/2015 so maybe it's really true. But I'm somewhere in between cloud 9 and hell cause I'm torn between what to feel until I get solid proof. I also sent in an I-129F form to try my luck but up til now it just says that the USCIS cannot provide me info when I checked the case status (but previously it said "my case has been received"). Does that mean it was administratively closed? Anyone who has experienced a very short waiting time for I-130 please give me some support.

I sent my application for both my parents sometime in February of this year. It got approved in March. 33 days to be exact! At first, I could not believe that both cases had been approved. I had to read the email 3x, checked the case on the USCIS website 3x. It is true!!! I am just so thankful about it. I got the letter in the mail 4 days after their petitions were approved.

That's good to hear Katniss! It's sunday today so I'm not getting anything yet for sure. I'm still a bit paranoid because I didn't receive an email, just the update from the USCIS website. Crossing fingers that I'll get it within this week. Happy Easter everyone!
