being touched

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I see on ocassions the phrase " I was touched", referring apparentely to an action by USCIS that I do not seem to grasp. Please help with these abreviations and expressions that drive me nuts. Thanks

I think it means that someone has began to review the application.

Actually, it could mean someone has started to review your application but in most times it does not. You're petition has a bar code and everytime someones touches your petition they swipe the bar code and the 'last updated' date changes. Sadly, they touch your application to count it, move it, or relocate it. It could mean it has been moved to an adjudicators desk, or it could mean your petition was moved from filing cabinet A to filing cabinet B due to a leaky pipe

Don't put to much stock behind touches, some people get heaps of spread out touches during their journey, some get approved with no touches

Good luck

It means that someone has handled your file. It could be they are looking at your petition or moved it from one file cabinet to another.

Once you get your NOA1 you can go to the USCIS site and sign up for updates. Text and email. On your NOA1 will be a number that you register with. From what I have been reading, some files are touched and some are not. Don't worry if you don't see touched on your file. I have seen many that have gone through the process that never had touched.
