Hi, Sign up at www.uscis.gov When you see your date change for your case that means they have Touched it, meaning it was either moved from one desk to another or they actually looked at it. Good Luck To You :)

If you have received a NOA1 from them, you can check via USCIS website using the case status number on the receipt (13 digits, I believe, no dashes). Check the Last Update. If the date changes, then that's considered "touched"

thank you for all the infos you guys provided. can I sign up for the status updates even if i'm the beneficiary? or just the petitioner? thanks much again and gudluck to all of us! cheers! =)

Yes, have the Petitioner send you the Receipt # on the NOA1. (No Spaces) Example: WACXXXXXXXXX. Follow the USCIS Link in above Posts. Have the Petitioner provide you with the User Name and Password to access Updates.

Make a "shortcut" to the USCIS website to easily access it. You will always need to know: Receipt # ..... User Name...... And Password.....

Keep in mind that USCIS does not always update the site....

Funny I was wondering about this 'touched' thing too. I am signed up with the USCIS site. However the only thing it gives me for my case status is that it is in 'Initial Review'. There are 4 categories given when i check my case status: 1. Acceptance 2. Initial Review 3. Decision 4. Post Decision Activity. I have been on #2 ever since my file was received Feb 15, 2011, and I am signed up for case updates. There are no dates given to see if a file has been touched. Am i not seeing something right or has the site changed?

There should be a page where it gives you a "Last Updated" date as well as the type of petition you've sent in.

Go to My link and on your left there is a menu, go to 'Sign-up for Case Updates'... you will need your receipt number to sign up, once you do it, look for your case and add it to your portfolio. every time you sign up and see your portfolio you will see ur case and the last time that it was updated (that is the touch) and u can also get email or text notifications there.... although as many people have said, they dont always update it so try not to obssess to much checking every day (as I do :wacko: )
