K1 Receipt of Notice - Questions regarding mailing mishap

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, my fiancé and I sent in our application end of October and received the confirmation text & email shortly after, however didn’t receive the Receipt of Notice. After a month of waiting and no mail we checked to see that our case status online updated, saying that our Notice mail was sent back by the USPS and that we should request the document to be re-sent. We’re not totally clear why the Notice was sent back but figure there must have been some mix up between my fiancé’s living address and mailing address (he needs to use a PO box to receive mail). He sent in the e-request and got the Notice a few days later.

 

My concerns are:
(1)Should we formally change the mailing address for our case on the USCIS website? Did it “automatically update” when he submitted the e-request? We don’t really know why the notice was marked as undeliverable in the first place but would like to avoid it happening again in the future in case it slows the process the down, especially if it’s something like an RFE and we’re not aware we received one.
(2)Our case status hasn’t updated on the status tracker on the USCIS website. It still says the old message of how the USPS returned our mail and we would need to put in a request and we have until April or our application will be considered abandoned, etc. From some reading around it seems like it likely won’t update until we get another big update on our case, so we can ignore it since we received our physical Notice anyways-- is this correct? 


Additionally, on the Receipt of Notice there are 2 dates: Received date (Oct. 25) and the Notice date (Nov. 27) – which more precisely represents our NOA 1 date?

 

These probably aren’t a huge deal, but some clarification would help put our minds at ease while we’re waiting on any updates, thanks!

Received date is by the lockbox, 

Original Notice date was probably Recieved date +3 or 4 days

Notice date is the date of the reprinted


YMMV
