Waiting after sending the I-485 packet.

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We just sent out our I-485 packet along with all of the other goodies required for the Adjustment of Status. What is the normal wait time between when they receive the packet and confirm to you its receipt via e-mail?

We cut it a bit close on time, and I'm worried that although it was received at the Chicago USCIS office via FedEx yesterday at 9:30...I don't want her to fall 'out of status' in the coming days and we have trouble.

Any advice?

Michael

I don't know the answer, we are waiting as well. But you should not have any real problems with being out of status.

For email receipt, technically within 24 hour of them receiving your packet.

But your packet arriving there as per your fedex confirmation is not the same as USCIS 'receiving' it, from my experience.

I would give it 2 days. I think that was when I finally got the emails/text message receipt.

PS: she's fine status-wise :)
