To check the status of your petition, please have your I-797C receipt notice along with your 13-digit receipt number available, and click on:  CHECK MY STATUS 

Note: You can only check your status online if you have a case pending with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

If you would like to know the processing time for your type of case, click HERE .  On your receipt notice, in the return address space, the service center processing your case is indicated.  Choose the correct service center (e.g. Nebraska Service Center, California Service Center, Vermont Service Center) from the list on this page.  Find your form number on your receipt notice and compare it to the list provided for that service center.  If you are checking a Form I-485 or N-600, you should choose your local office as opposed to the service center.  If you are not sure of your local office, you can find that information HERE .
