Do cashed checks imply accepted applications?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I received texts and e-mails from USCIS on 2/14/17 indicating cases had been accepted (I-130, I-485, and I-765) and routed to National Benefits Centers. Checks for I-485 and I-130 also cashed the same day.

Question is: does this mean everything was OK with the applications? Or is there still a chance that an RFE will be requested/application will be returned?


Would greatly appreciate if anyone can share their experiences/thoughts/opinions. 


Thank you!

Still potential for RFE.


Just means they received the paperwork and everything needed was there; but they can still ask for other evidence later as they review the packet.

Accepted doesn't mean approved, it merely means it's been accepted for processing. Once processing starts (much later than the date it's accepted) that's when it's decided if it's RFE'd, approved, or rejected.
