Hi guys! My husband and I recently filed our I-130, I-485, and my I-765. I received NOAs for all of them in the mail, but when I filed them, I did not file G-1145. Is there any other way that I can still receive E-notifications, even though I did not file the form G-1145 with my papers? I checked my status online and saw a "sign-up" link for case updates on the USCIS website where one can check the status of their petition. In which it was written there:


My Case Status Sign-up for Case Updates

USCIS Customers (applicants or petitioners) and Representatives (such as lawyers, charitable groups, or corporations) who require regular access to status information about multiple cases can create an account to more conveniently access this information. The services provided to both account types are identical, except Representatives may also enter their own internal office tracking number with each receipt number.

In addition, USCIS Customers and Representatives can choose to receive automatic case status updates, which will be sent via e-mail. A new pilot program provides the additional option to receive a text message notification that a case status update has occurred, which will be sent to a United States mobile phone number. USCIS Customers and Representatives that select the option to receive the text message notification acknowledge that Standard Messaging Rates or other charges related to these notifications may apply.

Please enlighten me with this, as I just want to receive updates via text and e-mail as well. I just wasn't aware of the form G-1145 when we filed our papers… Thank you very much!

The OP filed AOS therefore her forms were sent to the lockbox. Submitting a G-1145 usually gives case status update- at least when I was adjusting.

Since you received your NOAs, you can sign up for case status on the USCIS website and enter the receipt numbers on each form. You also have the option of receiving your updates via text, email or both.

Filed: F-1 Visa Country: Jamaica

I signed up for email and text updates and the only update I ever got was that they received my packet. I found that it was easiest to just log on to USCIS case status and search using your receipt numbers.
