When filing online, how are supporting documents included?  Are they loaded as attachments?  Is a case number assigned immediately?

Filing online is either way more convenient/Easy than filing by Paper. When you start the form it asked your basic information & than based on this information it asked you to fill out only the information & upload the documents as attachment  that is relevant to your case, but i advice you to upload as many document as possible in other Documents area, Case no is assigned immediately after you pay the fees at the end & submit the form.

Hi,

I am US citizen. My I-130 for parents file was received at the Phoenix lockbox on June 18, 2021 but I haven’t received the receipt yet and check is not been cashed yet. Can someone tell how long will it take to receive the receipt in mail?

 

Thanks.

Hi, One of my friend  sent I-130 for parents by paper mail & he got response in mail after 40 days. Filing online is usually more fast & you got the case receipt & no assigned instantly. USCIS also process online case fast & in different departments because they don't need to scan all the paper work that you send manually.

Hi, Firstly I suggest you to file online, & you need to send separate petitions for both parents, Its quicker. and another benefit of filling online , You need not to worry about which document you should upload. After completing application online it gonna ask you which document you should upload according to your information provided. For example if your Mother had different maiden name then it gonna ask you to upload additional documents like Proof of Name change like court &  marriage certificate.

 

Everyone Situation is different but I tell you which documents I uploaded:

Naturalization Certificate

Parents Marriage Certificate

My Birth Certificate

Mother name was different before marriage so i uploaded her Passport, marriage Certificate, National ID card ( Don't had proof of court Doc)

10th Grade school Certificate, because my birth certificate issued late so i need to upload additional doc to show that my date of birth was same.

 

Hope all the Information gonna help.

I applied for both my folks in April. Since then one of the status”actively reviewed” and the other “Case received”

Today the second one changed to “Actively reviewed”. While I’m glad there was a change,

it seems like there is still a long way to go.
