If you don’t receive receipt number after a few weeks, then you must visit a USCIS office through an INFOPASS appointment at www.uscis.gov. When you visit the USCIS office, you must carry a valid proof of identity, a photocopy of your application and other relevant documents of the case. If you have sent the application by a courier service, then you must carry the receipt issued by the courier service.
