    Answered . Sometimes the USCIS website is not very accurate, so you will probably just have to wait to receive the letter.

    Hopefully, it is the Approval Notice. It is not going to hurt to get things ready for the next stage.

    Answered . You should receive a USCIS notification about the adjudication of your case. USCIS sends it via regular mail/USPS so it may take a few days. If it has been a week or more already and you have not received anything in the mail, you should contact USCIS by calling the customer service number to get more information or status check.
