I filed my I-485 in October, but I still do not have a receipt. Should I be worried?


There have been widespread reports of delays with receipts being issued for I-140s and I-485s filed at USCIS lockboxes. If your filing fee check has been cashed, this is a good indication that the USCIS is processing your case. And, if you get the cancelled check, it is possible that the receipt number will be stamped on the back. But, even if you do not take any action, assuming your case was properly filed, chances are that you will get your receipt notice in the coming weeks. (25.Nov.2020)
