Default N400 can I do a case status? NSC

Hello all

This is a wonderful group.

I hope this is not a silly question but I tried to do a case status on the Government website but got an error message invalid string and/ or also cannot locate this #.

I recently applied to the NSC and received my NOA
form I-797c.

Just wondering if it takes a week or two before you can do an online check or if indeed the N400 is not checkable?
Also noticed their are two LIN numbers on the form... one at the top @ application number and it is a LIN*~~~~~~~~~~~~
and then at the very bottom of the form there is a different number this time LIN$ ~~~~~.
I presume my receipt numbe ris the first one.
Thanks to all and will keep you up-dated. I did not receive a notice for finger printing yet.

Jessica

I believe the receipt number is at the bottom of the NOA ... the reason I think it is because that's the number printed on the back of the check I sent and they cashed.

I am not sure if we can get status online that way because I am experiencing the same.

Hi,
My husband is in the middle of his N400 through NSC (Chicago) as well. We are able to see his case status online. The number you need to use has to be 13 digits long. Our number includes an asterisk * so make sure to put that in there if you have one. I first tried it without and it came up invalid. We were able to check the status at about the two week mark from them receiving it.

Good luck.

We received his NOA and his fingerprinting notice on the same day. He went for printing on Dec. 29 which was one month to the day after they received the package.

Will keep you updated when we hear something else.

(and yes, they cashed the check the same day they received the package.... )

Thank you SG

I really appreciate you keeping me up-dated as I am just a few weeks behind you so our applications might move somewhat in similar times.

Good luck to you for a speedy conclusion ....

Mark's I-797 was dated March 27, 2007 but his online case status wasn't updated until April 12 (and hasn't budged since). I'd say if you wait 2-3 weeks it should eventually show up when you plug in the number.

The online case status system is notoriously unreliable. My N400 case never appeared there, even though it was processed normally and I'm now a citizen. Dozens of posters over at immigrationportal.com have had the same experience as well. So don't sweat it if you can't get good information from that system.

We know........but it's the last step in making yourself crazy before not having to deal with USCIS again!

Exactly - my case never appeared - and I called the mis-info line and the confirmed the case and its status and said sometimes it just doesn't make it into the system So if it's not there online do not worry - it makes no difference.
