CA1515 - If you do not receive a Biometrics notice within one month after acceptance date, which is what happened to us, i called in and requested for an appointment notice to be sent (they specify that you must wait thirty days after NOA-1 date on letter in order to request biometrics appt, and the applicant must be on the call as well, because regardless if you are the petitioner, they will not give you any details. Did you sign up for text or email notifications? I submitted form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance with my application

Thank you that is good to know! I am working with a lawyer and they sent it out on either 10/27 or 10/30. When we were doing the paperwork we did opt to get email/text notifications but I have yet to get anything. Is it too soon or should I have received something by now?

CA1515 - Your lawyer should have sent the application in a trackable format, meaning we sent ours certified mail and received the notice back with their stamp meaning they received it at the lockbox. I think you should have received something by now I sent via post office on 4/27/17 around 530 pm and within 1 week i got the text notification. Please ask them for the UPS or USPS tracking info because you dont have a case number yet and all of the 601 - A applications get sent to Summit Lee Missouri

I am happy to hear this CA1515 we got our case complete from NVC on the 14th (NVC received packet 9/28) and an email confirmation today (queue awaiting an interview appointment overseas). Also, the good thing is that this application has quite a high approval % per https://www.uscis.gov/tools/reports-studies/immigration-forms-data/data-set-all-uscis-application-and-petition-form-types. As of Q2 2017 it was around 94%.

CONGRATS! So exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. Please update us on your interview. I hope we get approval I know from this point we wait about 4 more months. Thanks again for answering all my questions
