2)I have heard that it takes 2 to 5 weeks to receive I-140 receipt .If that is the case, concurrent filing of I-140/485 is safer ,else I would be at risk waiting for I-140 receipt as I might miss the cutoff.
Can members tell how many days it took for them to get the I-140 receipt
number as well as hard copy of the I-140 receipt notice?
Kindly help as I need to make my decision in a day.
Check if you want to explore e-filing your I-140. I am not sure, you might get a receipt number immediately
I have also heard that e-filed applications are sent to TSC, but again verify before doing anything.
