H1b Receipt question

Asked about 1 year ago - Detroit, MI

An employer filed a cap exempt h1b petition for me on April 1st (using the remainder option). But we have still not yet received the receipt for the same.

1. Should we not have got the receipt by now considering it was a cap exempt petition and didn't have anything to do with the lottery?

2. Is it possible that since this was also filed on April 1st ,it would have been mixed up with the 1000s of other petitions and is stuck ?

    Answered . Not necessarily as USCIS was inundated with H-1B petitions on April 1st. You can always check with the employer to see if the check was cashed. The cashed check will have a receipt number on the back.
