Today is two weeks since I sent I130 and still no sign of NOA1 and check has not been cashed either. Should I start to worry. Could it be that there are any RFE?

^^Agreed. Give it a bit more time but keep checking to see if the cheque has been cashed. Once that happens your NOA1 shouldn't be too far behind. Good luck!

They haven't even looked at your case yet so no, a slow NOA-1 is not an indication of an RFE. For example, the above poster OBX and I filed on the same day, we got our NOA-1 a few days before her and we ended up getting an RFE.

It can take up to 60 days to get your NOA-1. Remember, USCIS gets 20,000 pieces of mail a day (no....seriously) so it will take some time for them to get to you. This process is about patience. Have they cashed your cheque yet?

Good luck.
