  1. If application was delivered to USCIS on 06/12/2012 at 10AM. Will the USCIS send me a rejection letter or send back my documents? My lawyer is saying that even though the cap was filled on 6/11/2012 there is a big chance it might still be processed otherwise they would have sent back the documents. (The application was under Premium Processing). Please advise..Thank you.
