Receipt number recvd with in 7 days of filling Petition

Hi,

My Consultant provided Fedex tracking number on 13th June and which shows petition reached on 11th Jun. Followed by confirmation from him stating that “acceptance of check cleared details from USCIS received”. Later on 19th Jun, i got a receipt number with status “Initial Review”.

Would like to know is it possible to have a receipt number with in 7 days of filling petition through normal process or is my consultant fooling me?

Ashish, there is no specific timeline to receive receipt number. Sometimes it may take days while sometime weeks.

If you have the receipt number you can check the status online for any updates. If you still have doubts, you can ask for copy of the physical receipt which will be mailed to your company. This copy has all the details you will need.
