Is this good or bad? My NOA1 was issued February 24 and my online record was updated on February 28. No explanation was given online. Why would it be touched so quickly? Does it mean that I made a mistake? The only other thing that I can think of is that my check was cashed about that time.

Being touched means something is being done. Anything being done with your petition is good. If you made a mistake, you'll get something in the mail in the next few days. Relax. You'll be fine.

First...Congrats! Welcome to the club!

Second, you will get your NOA1 quickly. It is just saying that USCIS received your I-129F.

NOA2 is the one that takes months.

The laws are changing in the beginning of march requiring criminal background checks of the Americans. It's my guess USCIS is "cleaning out the pipeline".

I noticed that you and I are both from Chicago and have Ukrainian fiances. Congratulations to you. How did you get the NOA2 so fast? It looks from your timeline that you received it almost immediately.
