Do I go off of when USCIS received my application or the receipt date?

Recommended Posts

we're anxiously awaiting our NOA2 now... I'm under the understanding that I would be going off when they received it and not the receipt date? Am I wrong? If I'm wrong the receipt date is three days later. They received it on the 10 FEB, and the receipt date is the 14 FEB and according to VJ they are processing applications roughly around 11 FEB?

3 days makes no difference..The VJ processing date simply means at least one case has been processed.......nothing more.

Every petition is different.   It takes as long as the adjudicator takes to process your petition.  Just because they are past the date of receipt does not mean yours is being processed or done being processed.   In some cases it takes longer to verify the petitioner's data and histories.  Some adjudicators work faster than others.   Compare it to getting in the wrong line at the supermarket checkout.  The good news is that you are closer to getting that step done.

Fair enough! However, do you know what date I should go off of? I'm going to be with the less optimistic option: that being February 13th instead of the 10th. :) Appreciate your help.

Don't go off VJ (think of it more of a guideline) go off of what USCIS is reporting. Your receipt date is Feb 14 and that is what you would look regarding the timeframe. https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/

there is nothing to go off. That processing time on USCIS is as good as picking a lottery number.

USCIS reports when you're eligible to make an inquiry.

 

It does not report what day's case they're working on now.

 

In normal times (which these are not!) the processing time estimates they give tend to be quite conservative, so if you're trying to figure out how long it will probably take to process your case, VJ estimates are a better bet. However, for a lot of reasons, there's less data being added to the system here every day than normal, and VJ estimates tend to lag changing processing times a bit (not anywhere near as much as official estimates do, but a bit), and this is more of a thing when processing times are increasing (because only the faster cases will have NOA2s to report).
