Yep, that's correct. We mailed it on Monday, 2/4 via USPS express mail to the Dearborn address in Chicago. It was delivered on 2/5 at 11:43am and signed by G. Collins. The three texts and emails came last night (2/7) after 10pm. The receipt numbers are in sequential order, but they don't specify which number is for which document. Guess we have to wait for the official hard copy for that information.

You've probably thought of this already, but have you checked the USCIS case status site? It has a message about a 30-45 day wait in new cases being added, though, so I'm guessing they won't show up. I had such K-1 flashbacks going there again!

Guess we have to wait for the official hard copy for that information. The check is currently being processed by the bank; it should clear tonight (2/8).

In case this is helpful to anyone: We taped our name to the mailbox today to avoid any potential problems with delivery of USCIS documents in the future. The mail woman has been putting question marks on the mail lately because of my name change and because she didn't recognize my husband's name (he's only gotten two pieces of mail in the last three months). So I'd suggest doing that if you moved recently or if your spouse doesn't get a lot of mail.

My AOS package got delivered Feb 5 at 9:45 am signed by Martinez.Praying we get the text and email tonight.

Delivered on Feb 4th. We got our Text/Email last night. Seems like it is taking 3/4 business days by my trend calculation.

Wish you a smooth sailing :dance:

Mine was delivered last Wednesday, but the check hasn't been cashed, and we haven't received any emails/texts yet. I feel like this all happened more quickly with the I-129F petition but maybe my memory is faulty.
