Practitioners nationally have reported significant delays in receiving receipt notices form USCIS service centers after properly filing applications. While the canceled check sent with the application may provide evidence of receipt and a possible file number, it is critical to be able to demonstrate when the application was mailed and received by using some form of return receipt or delivery confirmation. 

Currently, the delays are affecting Form I-751, Petitions to Remove Conditions (filed two years after the green card issued in a marriage case in which the individuals were married less than two years at the time of adjudication) and Form I-589 for asylum.
