I got mine too yesterday- I think USCIS emails the receipt # and then mail the hard copy as well.

Pradeep - Highly unlikely that lawyer have not received receipt yet.(assuming its filed in PP)

Well, I spoke with the attorney this morning. She did not receive it. This was the reply from my attorney.
"we have not heard back about your case. This is not unusual for USCIS and is not cause for concern"

I filed on 28th and USICS received on 29th and received receipt on 30th. Still awaiting decision on my case...This is freaking stressful. Never had this feeling before.

@sahil838, I still did not receive receipt number. Mine was submitted on 27th in premium. I was supposed to join next week, but postponed to the week after. I am stressed out. You still have time to get the approval.

I just got the receipt. Even though USCIS received the application on 28th, my receipt was generated on 5th.

No receipt yet for me, the lawyers are incommunicado, its like they are paid to send the minimum number of emails as possible

@Arreyyaar and @guru1984:
I am getting worried as why does it take so long to get the hard copy of i797? some people with a later approval date already got it
