Hi all,

CSC signed (i.e. USPS mail receipt) for my initial I-129F package 3 weeks ago (Feb 8).

On this site, I've read that avg NOA1 time is 11 days.

Is that:

(FEB 8 + 11 days)

or

(WHEN THE USCIS PROCESSING TIME PAGE SAYS THEY'RE WORKING ON FEB 8TH APPS + 11 DAYS)

?

Also, do they tend to email or snail mail these notifications?

Thanks,

Rob

It turns out they cashed the cheque on 2/15. Lots of stamps on the back. Any indication which is the case number? I'll search other posts for that...

The NOA1 date is usually close to the date they cashed the check. They usually make sure the payment is correct before they issue the NOA1.

How We Process Your Application at a Service Center:

Normal Processing:

The first step is the receipt of mail. Mail is generally opened within twenty-four hours of receipt. The majority of mail arrives on Monday (40%) and Friday (20%). The other three days of the week share an equal amount of mail. Because of the volume of mail arriving on the two busiest days, sending a case via express mail to arrive on either of those days does not ensure faster processing. The lower volumes of mail arriving on Tuesdays means that the mail is usually opened by Tuesday evening.

Applications are stamped with the time and date of physical receipt, not the time and date they are actually opened. Mail with fees enclosed is routed immediately to mail assembly. Cases that are filed prematurely (before the applicant was eligible or met the legal criteria) or that were filed on an outdated form are prepared for manual rejection at this point. Cases lacking proper signature or correct fee are identified for system rejection.

NOA1 is received a few days to a couple weeks or so on average after they actually physically receive your case.
