Hi everyone, we just mailed our forms today. I and my husband(the petitioner) lives in Lagos, Nigeria. We had to get my husband's mum who lives in the United States to pay for the money order, attach it to the already filled forms and documents we sent her and she mailed it today. Just really anxious, we just hope all goes well and we get a notification in a few days.

about a week or so you should get NOA1 and then depending on your service center 6-12 months for approval

It’s been 20 days since Phoenix lockbox received my application, have not yet received NOA1, no text or email, even the check has not been cashed. should I be concerned that they lost my application? It was delivered as per USPS tracking. I called USCIS, they told me to wait 30 days before any enquiry. Even sent an email to the lockbox. That will put us behind a whole month if they have lost the application. Has anyone else had such situation?

Called USCIS and spoke to level II officer after being on hold for 84 mins. Finally got a confirmation that application was received and case number assigned. What a relief !!
