Hello all. When a H1B petition is approved by USCIS, what happens next? Does the immigration attorney receive an email version of the approval notice? Or do they only receive a hard copy of the notice by mail? How long does it take to receive the hard copy? For context: I’m currently in the USA, so this is a change of status from another visa to H1B. Thanks

Your attorney would receive an email on the same day of approval if the case is under premium processing. Else you need to wait until your attorney receives and sends you the approval notice. In my case it took 6-7 weeks.

The attorney should have receive an email notifying of the approval, but not the form I797 notice of approval. That comes by mail and the attorney should send it to you

I-797c Notice of Action - a week or so after approval. I-797a Notice of Action - a week or so after approval You’ll be given the hard copy notice of the approval I-797a.

did your lawyer suggest to wait to receive the original i797 to the i9 appointment or bring the copy of i797? My lawyer said it is okay to bring the copy when starts the new job. I highly doubt it and it is too risky.
