How to Check Your Immigration Case Status

April 02, 2020

Action Immigration

If you or someone you know is being held up by ICE, you want to make sure your immigration case goes through uninhibited.

Checking your status can be stressful. As with other governmental departments, the immigration service can get bogged down with cases and investigations, leaving you in the dark. Today, we're going to help you figure out your immigration case status so you can put this ordeal behind you and move on with your life.

Over the last number of years, the immigration service has improved its online system, allowing immigrants to monitor the progress of their case. Whether the person in question is already in America or is planning to move here, it's important to know where you stand.

It may take weeks or even months to process. Follow our guide and you'll be able to keep better track of where you're at.

Using the USCIS Website

Checking the status of your immigration application would have been nearly impossible a few years ago. It's only been in the last 10 years that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service website has allowed applicants to apply online. Now, you can use their site to monitor the progress and make any changes.

Whether you're applying for a family-based green card or a work-based one, it's likely that you'll be waiting a few weeks to hear back. During that time, you can now look at the USCIS website to obtain more information about this process. All you need is a stable internet connection.

Looking at Your Receipt Number

Find the receipt number that you received when you began your case. It should be a 13-digit number that begins with the office that handled your specific application (ie. EAC, WAC, SRC, LIN, etc.). Once you've identified this number, all that you have to do is go to the USCIS website and click the "Check My Case Status" link.

From there, you'll be taken to a screen where you put in your receipt number. It'll show you which of the 9 steps your application is in. They are as follows: acceptance, initial review, request for evidence, request for evidence response, testing and interview, decision, post-decision activity, oath ceremony, card production.

They'll notify you of how far along your application is and how many more steps there are until a decision has been made. You can enroll in case updates that will automatically notify you of any changes or progress in your application. You can also check processing times to get a better idea of how long it'll all take.
