How Do I Check My Green Card Application Status?

Posted on in Green Cards

Stamford, CT United States green card lawyer

The U.S. immigration process to become a legal resident is among the most complicated in the world. Those people who want to come to the United States for education, health reasons, work, or to be with family have many hurdles to overcome. The process to become a lawful permanent resident and get a Green Card can be particularly tedious. When applying for a Green Card, many applicants feel left in the dark as to what stage their application is in. This can cause undue stress to honest people who want to come to the United States and contribute to American society. Thankfully, those immigrants who apply for a Green Card have a way to check on the progress of their application.

My Case Status System

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) provides an electronic system for checking on the status of a Green Card application called “My Case Status.” This is an online program that can be accessed from any personal computer or mobile device. By going to the My Case Status webpage and entering in the case receipt number (a number that includes three letters followed by 10 digits), a person can view the most recent notifications regarding his or her application. However, it is important to note there can be a delay in notifications shown on the system.

What if There Is a Delay in Processing My Application?

Do not panic. If your application is being processed slowly, this does not necessarily mean something was wrong with your application. The American bureaucracy is a large but slow mechanism. Additionally, the current administration is introducing various changes to the USCIS branch of the State Department. Quite a few of these changes are beneficial to those seeking legal entry to the United States, but as with any changes, implementing them can sometimes slow down the everyday function of departments.
