NOA2 9/18/06. Touched on 9/19/06???

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was notified of my NOA2 approval on 9/18/06. Today, I see that my "touch" date has updated to 9/19/06. That seems strange to me. Why did they touch me after I'm approved already? Anyone else notice their touch dates being updated after their NOA2 date?

JAFA, touches mean your case is worked, nothing more. If it is an approval or RFE you will get an email saying so, and your case status will be updated.

Thanks! Did check the on-line status this morning. Probably only wishful thinking, but am hoping that others have been "touched", status wasn't updated and then they got NOA2. Realize it's a long shot, but am still hoping.

Touched means the date changed but not case status. You are checking the date!

Oh? I'm confused... I'm looking on the "Last Updated" date on the USCIS website under my Portfolio. Was under the understanding that if that date changes it means "some" action was taken. This constitutes a "Touch"? When I go to my receipt number for "Case Status" there's no change from NOA1.

Intent of posting was to check the likelyhood that I may be receiving an RFE or NOA2 soon. CSC seems to not be constistent with e-mailing (some don't get e-mail, others get three) and updating website.

More curiousity than anything else. Still just "hanging in there" and trying to be patient.

I was notified of my NOA2 approval on 9/18/06. Today, I see that my "touch" date has updated to 9/19/06. That seems strange to me. Why did they touch me after I'm approved already? Anyone else notice their touch dates being updated after their NOA2 date?

Yes mine was approved and touched, with exactly the same dates as yours.

Thanks! Crossing fingers even more. Just got "touched" again. Two days in a row now. Funny... No action for a very long time and lots of action now. Still no change in status though...
