Awesome! So the night that we filed online (3/2/19) our status updated about an hour later (via the app and old USCIS website) saying, "Case was received and a receipt notice was e-mailed" but we never saw an e-mail or an NOA1 document loaded into Sean's USCIS online account. We figured since it was a Saturday that we wouldn't see anything tangible until this week anyway.

 

Here's the chart I'm starting to keep track of everyone:

And here is what our case looks like online. 26 month estimated completion time...let's hope that's not the case.

I hope it is six months for you! It definitely will be at least a year for us Dallas filers, though. 

 

Also, did you file online or paper?
