How long aftter

Recommended Posts

I recently sent in my packet with I130, I485 and I765 mailed on 12/21 and received 12/23 signed for at 3:51pm at the Chicago lock box.. The money is still in our account and I have not received any notices. How long after they pick it up before I get an update? Right now we are just waiting to see that they acknowledge the packet so we can get to the next step. Any help would be great! :):):):)

It is the holidays, do not expect the NOA's for at least 2 - 3 weeks. Did you file the E-Notification form also?

Also looks like the forms were updated on 12/22 and I mailed on 12/21... Are we okay?

Yes, so long as it is sent before the new forms were published you are all good.

It takes a couple weeks to get notification and for them to process payment. With the Christmas and New Year holidays, yours may take a bit longer.
