I-797 Accepted twice..and no I-485 acceptance

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I mailed out my AOS forms and they were received on June 30th. On the 2nd of July I got two email notifications that my I-797 had been accepted and they both had different receipt numbers. A few days later in the mail I got two letters from USCIS with the notifications, reflecting what the emails stated. I'm a bit worried that something's going on. Why would I get two receipt numbers for the I-797 but not a word about the I-485? And on top of that when I go to check the status via the website, it can't find either case. Should I be calling them on Monday and if so who do I even call?

The I-797 is the NOA, it's not a application/form number. So you should get one to three I-797s depending on what you applied for. You came on a K-1 visa, so you would have a I-485, and possibly a I-765 and a I-131. If you omitted either the I-765 or the I-131 (those are optional) then you should have TWO I-797s with 2 receipt numbers. Whatcha got? :)

I have the i-485 and the I-765. But is there a reason neither are recognized in the case status update section of the USCIS website?

Edit: Nevermind...I just checked again and found out I have an RFE for the I-485...ugh...

The case status sections are extremely unreliable, though it sounds like it's working now for you. Wait for physical mails. Good luck.
