My lawywer mentioned that they could file Monday July 2nd for packet delivery on Tuesday July 3rd. What is the definitnion of the filing date? Is it done electronically so that the filing date is Monday (the date the packet is sent) and delivery date is Tuesday? Or is the delivered date the filing date.

he is just fooling you.
he means he will send out the package (file) on July 2 and it will reach USCIS on July 3. there is no other way to do it

post date is important here and not the delivery date.

So, wait for july 2nd.
Better than that, if you have buddies in FedEx, go bug them to accompany you to the nearest FedEx shoppe/store/offcie and do the shipment on July 1st.

It is my earnest advice and so is of many more here that filing on july 30th or earlier is risky and may end up with a rejection.

Best regards

Post date is NOT Important. What's important is the "delivered" date. Think about. USCIS can't and is not responsible for postal delays. If one sends a package and somehow it does not get delivered for 14 days, USCIS cannot mark the application received until and when it receives it, period.
Please check before posting untrue statements. So even if your application reaches the uscis on the July 3rd, but uscis enters your application to the system on August 1st, your filed date will be July 3rd. So don't worry. Make sure your package reaches USCIS in July and you will be OK.
