So i posted about on how it had been 3 months and my lawyer hadnt sent in my aos. Well he finally called me tuesday and surprisingly let me know he had already sent my aos 2 weeks prior. I was so excited i totally forgot what other questions i had in mind. My checks havent been cashed yet so id like to ask you guys if your lawyers gave you guys tracking numbers for your packets? im just so skeptical especially sinse he takes forever to get in contact and hell be out on vacation for 2 weeks. Is it important for me to get a tracking number or can i call uscis to see if they received anything? When can i expect something if 2 weeks ago it was sent? Thanks everyone.

Never used a lawyer because they are not reliable and not needed for the process.

But if he sent your stuff 2 weeks ago like he said he did. He should have gotten the NOA1 already and your checks should have been cashed.

Your case number will be on the NOA1.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

Never used a lawyer either. If you look at my timeline in my signature it did take them over 2 weeks to send the email and text they received Pui's paperwork. If you can try and get a tracking number. Good luck.

Knowing the tracking number doesn't help much, I assume that all the mails will be delivered to the lawyer's office?

I used a lawyer, I paid them directly and they paid the fees from their accounts. And they always took at least a week to cash the checks (regardless of when they paid the fees)

I frequently made calls to NVC, sent emails, etc, myself without contacting the lawyer.
