We are not even one week after H1B filing day and problems are here. AILA Liaison has been advised by USCIS that a small number of petitions submitted for the FY2010 H-1B quota were receipted in error . This means the Immigration already issued receipts, even before any lottery. If this happened to your case, this is a mistake as final count of cases is still going.
Please check your petition to make sure you indicate that it was new employment, a cap submission, and why it is a cap case. See our H1B posting on how to mark a case. This is important to help identify petitions that should be included in the H-1B lottery.
We will keep you posted of any new developments.
