Hi, all:

 

my credit card was charged for the $1200+ fee on July 19th.  Should we have received an email verification of receipt?  I’ve noticed that NOA1 hard copy can vary in length of waiting time.

 

 Thank you for any experienced thoughts on this

Ah, thanks.  I guess if they took our money, then they must have received it 🤷🏻‍♂️ UPS tracking screwed up and it was “out for delivery” for 3 days and still doesn’t show as delivered.

 

When editing the timeline, does one use the credit card transaction date as “received”?

When the charge showed pending on my credit card I got a text message the next day with all the case numbers for all the forms. AOS, EAD,and AP. Did you sign up for electronic notification?

No, I didn’t get a text and we did sign up for electronic notification.  Now, I 😧

That's weird. The received date we got on the paper NOA 1 was when they actually received it. Exact dates are on my timeline. But it took them like 20 days to run my card after it showed delivery by USPS, that was a long 20 days, I thought for sure something was wrong with the package.

No you wait to edit your timeline until you gave your Noa1 hard copy and read the received date.

Your impatience is really showing, lol.

I know 😬. It just makes me uncomfortable that UPS “lost” the paperwork, then we get charged but do not receive an electronic verification...  is the case # the same as our WAC #?

As usual... there’s nothing “usual”

How could you have gotten charged if they did not receive it?🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂🙃🙂.

It can take 30 days even if your payment is cashed. 

You will receive a new RECEIPT number for every separate application you file.

I get you.  I know I’m being paranoid. It would have been comforting to have received the text message acknowledging the receipt (as I sent the appropriate form asking them to do that).

I signed up for electronic notifications when I did my AOS in 2015 and again last year for ROC. I never received a single text or email from them. Ever.

Hello, fellow Russian (or his/her US spouse) :)

I had the same issue, probably the following topic will be helpful for you:

 

https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/713009-i485-no-noa1-receivedno-case-number-almost-30-dayspossible-refiling/#comments

 

In my personal experience, I got NOA receipt numbers three days after USCIS charged my husband’s credit card. No email ever arrived. It took about 4 days to receive hard copies of NOA by mail after those texts. Overall the whole process of filing took about a month for me, so just give it some more time.

Thank you, Nadia.  My wife, Vika, is Russian 😊.  I appreciate your kind reply and the previous post was helpful.  Things never go easily or according to plan in this process, so I should just chill for a while.
