Hello Sir, My employer posted H1b cap subject case on friday (March 29th 2013) and it was supposed to be delivered on monday (April 1 st 2013) to USCIS. Instead of monday, the USPS postal service delivered it on saturday (March 30th 2013) Will my application be processed or rejected? Does USCIS process mail on Weekend? Will USCIS reject mine because it reached on a weekend and before April 1st 2013? when and how will i know about it?Does USCIS base it on Postmark timestamp given by the location when it is received on a weekend ? Or does it wait until monday the next business day to process my application?I am really confused and i didn't see this coming, related post http://www.visalawyerblog.com/2012/03/h1b_visa_...
1. It is the employer, not the employee, who files H-1Bs.
2. It is not known how USCIS will treat a saturday delivery. They could reject it as having been filed too early, or they could accept it. If rejected, the solution would be to file a new one. But, if accepted and you file a new one, neither will be processed.
This is a good question. The answer is
discretion. USCIS is usually closed on Saturdays. Therefore, if it was unable to be received on Saturday, even if it was physically left on Saturday, then it may be considered delivered on Monday. However, most of us make sure that the parcel is left and delivered on April 1 as a precaution.
