Hi David,

I am not too sure about this one since the kid doesn't live in the country but maybe you should for any future process to bring him in the country.

Good morning folks!

I just received a text message from USCIS that my case was received with a receipt #WAC........... saying that I should receive my I-797 by mail soon.

I tried to add this receipt # on my USCIS online account with no success since an error message is showing up. 

It might take some time but the good thing is that they received the package and cashed the money.

Same here. Just received the text and I cannot check the status online yet. I am guessing it takes a while. Interestingly my bank account doesn't show the check has been cashed, but I am assuming if it wasn't I wouldn't had received the text with my case number. This is quite a relief and I intend to forget as much as possible about my case (except for making sure I carry the extension letter, going to biometrics, and looking out for RFEs), until I file N-400 next year. This was very stressful but it is nice to think that it could be the last time I have to submit so much evidence for an application!
