Delays on Receipt Notices for I-140s and I-485s Filed at USCIS Lockbox
November 24, 2020
The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) reports delays in the issuance of receipt notices for the Form I-485 (application for adjustment of status) and Form I-140 (immigrant visa petition) filed with the USCIS Lockbox in late September and in October 2020. It appears the notices are taking at least six weeks to be issued. AILA recently reached out to the USCIS Lockbox regarding these delays and has asked the Lockbox to confirm:
- The current processing times for receipt notices to be issued for Form I-485 and Form I-140; and
- The timeframe that stakeholders should wait before following up with the Lockbox regarding receipt delays.
Weaver Schlenger is tracking these developments closely and will continue to provide updates.
