hi my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help!
USCIS will issue an approval notice, a denial notice, a notice of intent to deny, a request for evidence or open an investigation for fraud or misrepresentation within the 15 calendar day period, ONCE THEY RECEIVE IT.
If the petition or application requires the submission of additional evidence or a response to a notice of intent to deny, a new 15 calendar day period will begin upon receipt by USCIS of a complete response to the request for evidence or notice of intent to deny.
since it was received by USCIS on 7/20, that would give them a few more days until the 15 days is up. I would expect that you would receive the receipt notice in the next day or two!
i understand. there could be a few reasons why it would be taking so long, mainly if they needed to acquire additional information. when dealing with the USCIS it is usually difficult to communicate or get a straight answer. in all situations you will get the receipt notice within 15 days so until that 15 days is up, i wouldnt be too worried yet. do you have any further questions?
