CASE STATUS ONLINE:
You may check the status of your case online by clicking here. You will be prompted to enter your case number; this number can be found on any receipt notice or biometrics appointment notice. Some cases will have multiple receipt numbers, one for each form that has been submitted. While your case is being processed, the case status will read "initial review." This means that at this time, USCIS has asked for no additional information, but has not yet made a decision on your case. You may scroll down on the case status page to check the average posted processing times.
If you have received a biometrics appointment notice, you are required to appear at the date and time specified on your appointment letter. If you live in the Front Range area your appointment will be at the following location (see map). You may locate other ASC offices by clicking here.
