Ok, so last night we got our email and text NOA for all 4 filings: 130, 485, 131 and 765. I was confused since my husband, the USC, got all of them, while I didm't get any...it seemed a bit weird...But I figure it's ok. This morning I saw USCIS cashed the checks in.

Now we're moving on, waiting for the NOAs in the mail.

Anyone else making progress?

Just checking the time line, when was your pkg received

If you were referring to our timeline, package was received August 5th. Email and text Noas, August 10th, checks cashed August 11. Now we're hoping to get the notification in the mail by the end of the week.

I tried to make my timeline show on posts...but couldn't do it...

Where are you, did you sent in the paperwork yet?

Hey Annara,

We are identical on the timelines. Package was signed for on August 5.

Both the I-130 and I-765 say they were received on Aug 5, but the I-485 says was received on Aug 7. Just being paranoid...

Checks cashed on Aug 11. Waiting for NOA1 in mail... :)

This is not my first rodeo with USCIS, so I'm kind of used to the waiting game.

Hope it's smooth sailing for all of us!

Where did your package get routed to? Mine went to the National Benefits Center. Is that good or bad?

Hi Amuthan,

Take a look at the I485 info and see if maybe the difference in date is because they mention "fee received". I looked and for us it says August 9, but I guess it's only because they refer to payment...It doesn't make sense otherwise, since all forms were filed in the same envelope. Or maybe another person is working on I 485...anyway, I don't think there's anything to worry about.

We were routed to NBC as well, and again, I don't think there's reason to worry. I saw most family based applications go there and then they can be re-routed to New York (as is the case for us). I'm just guessing, so we'll have to be patient and see.

Have you applied before with USCIS? Any insider info that can help with anxieties? :)

That's true.. It says "Fingerprint Fee Received" on August 7. I just looked at the timelines at VJ for NY office and it looks like it takes more than year to process! Good Lord!

You're asking the wrong person about coping mechanism! I already checked my case status 10 times so far.. That's just today! Lol!

As far as my previous experience with USCIS, they were for my H1-B visa and were premium processed.. So I kind of got my hard copy documents in 10-20 days.. That wait was excruciating.. I can only imagine what this is going to be like.. Haha!

The best way to cope with this is (IMHO) to not think about the process, keep enjoying the beautiful summer weather and carry on with regular life. Also, I tend to watch a lot of 90's and 80's American movies, makes me realize how much I love being here! :)

I really don't know if that helps! But, in the off chance that it did, lets spread the word! :D
