I keep reading about people's applications being "touched".

What does that mean exactly, and how can I know if my I-130 (or further applications) are "touched"?

I submitted an I-130 to the US Embassy in London on behalf of my wife about a couple of weeks ago, got an e-mail Notice of Receipt of Petition for Alien Relative (Form I-130)‏ from the Embassy on 03 Dec.

Many thanks for everyone's help!

Since you are DCF, there will be NO record on USCIS.GOV to track when the case is being handled.

Glenn,

In your case the best way of knowing whats happening with the application is to visit the US embassy website to know what date applications are currently being adjudicated. As of today they are working on applications filed on November 3rd.

So, just keep checking that link then and hope that, when Dec 1st or so rolls around, my application is in that bunch somewhere. Cool.
