I see many people asking if the petitions are processed in any particular order. Since they are all received practically on the same day, there really is no first in first out order, which is how petitions would normally be processed. In this case, the actual order of approval really depends on which officer is handling the case, how many cases they have, whether an RFE is necessary, and how fast they review them. There is really no rhyme or reason to the order petitions are approved (so don’t look up random receipt numbers around yours to see if they are approved or not, it really does not provide any useful information!).
