Next Steps after Submitting an I-601 Waiver

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

I have filed and submitted an I-601 waiver on behalf of my father. A week after submitting the waiver I received a receipt/notice stating that the payment was received (I-797C Notice of Action). Can someone please advice if the notice/ receipt is just for the payment or the waiver? Also, how long will I receive a response stating that the waiver was approved/ rejected? What are the next steps necessary?
