All it means is that your petition was received by USCIS, and the check was taken off your petition and was cashed. Your petition will now go into the line to wait to be processed. It has not been approved yet, so settle in for the wait.

Also, it's a good idea not to type in caps....it looks like you are shouting!

The filing fee is a non-refundable processing fee. It's what you pay to get them to look at your application. You don't get a refund whether it's denied or approved.

The filing fee is a non-refundable processing fee. It's what you pay to get them to look at your application. You don't get a refund whether it's denied or approved.

Small tid-bit not specifically asked by the OP, but I beg to differ with your explanation. The filing fee, while it is a non-refundable fee is not what you pay only for USCIS to look at your application. It is a fee paid so that someone qualified will review your petition and adjudicate it based on its merits. Approval or denial is the result of that adjudication.

Sit back and enjoy the ride, you've got at least four or five months (or more, depending on your consulate) before you hit K1 approval.

USCIS CASHED MY CHECK FOR MY K-1 VISA APPLICATION , DOES THIS MEAN IT WAS APPROVED?? AND READY TO PROCESS??

Please, first do not shout in all capital letter. USCIS cashed the check for the petition filing fee, not for a visa application. When your petition is approved, they'll send you an approval notice and then later your fiancee will be invited to apply for a visa abroad.

Small tid-bit not specifically asked by the OP, but I beg to differ with your explanation. The filing fee, while it is a non-refundable fee is not what you pay only for USCIS to look at your application. It is a fee paid so that someone qualified will review your petition and adjudicate it based on its merits. Approval or denial is the result of that adjudication.

In this case, USCIS is adjudicating a petition, not an application. Please don't add to the confusion on this subject by using "application" and "petition" interchangeably.
