Covo&Kitten,

When one submits an application or petition to the USCIS that can be accepted for processing the USCIS will send a Notice of Action of type Receipt Notice, to let the applicant or petitioner know that the application or petition has been received.

When the application or petition has been approved by the USCIS it will send a Notice of Action of type Approval Notice.

In most (but not all) cases, these will be the 1st and the 2nd NOAs sent out with regard to the case.

Or sometimes they will use Form I-797.

Thanks for the helpful information. As a LPR filling the petition for my wife, I received the NOA1 on Dec 22/2010 but since then, nothing else. The web tool still shows "Initial Review". Is that delay normal or do you think I should take some action?

The best luck for everyone.
