Calling to see if USCIS received my I-129F form?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it was okay/possible to call USCIS to see if they received my I-129F form?  I had gotten the mail certified but for some reason I can't find it.  I was worried that it might not have been delivered to their office.

There's certainly no harm in calling to see if they received it. There may be a back log in the mail room or some other cause for not yet receiving the notification. Did you sign up to have e-mail/text notification? If I were you, I would give them a call on Tuesday.

Did you pay by check? You can see if it was cashed. Or if you paid by money order, many times the issuer of it has a means to track if it has been redeemed or not.

Nope, check has not been cashed yet.  =/

Yeah I did sign up for e-mail/text notification.  I probably will call on Tuesday.

So they didn't process it yet and it's unlikely to be in their system yet. It's only been a week so that's not unheard of.

Check is only cashed once your case is processed by lockbox location and sent to CSC. If they notice a flaw in the initial application, they will return the check to you, allowing you to reapply without double the fee. Total time for this can definitely be longer than a week. That's what happened to us.

Ooo thanks, I got a little bit worried for a second.  Also figure since its labor day weekend things could be running a bit slower.
