I-130 January 2017 filers

Hi everyone!

 

I mailed my i-130 form on Friday, December 30, 2016 through USPS to the Chicago Lockbox location.  According to USPS's website, it says it arrived on Monday, January 2, 2017.  I included form G-1145, but I still haven't gotten any notification that my documents have been received.  Should I be worried?  If I should be concerned, what should I do next?  Contact the Chicago's Lockbox location?

Hello, keep in mind that form G-1145 is not for when they receive it, but the moment they start processing the forms and accepts it.

It usually takes between 10-17 business days to receive a response from USCIS. I'd advice you to be patient. Once it's not over 30 days it will be considered as normal processing time and that is the only information you'll get from calling USCIS if your application is under 30 days..

My pleasure, I know the waiting game can be terrifying at times

And also CIS doesn't handle the checks. Most applications go to bank-controlled 'drop boxes'. These, private bank-contractors have been overwhelmed in the past 2-3 months and it is taking more than 30 days in many cases.
