New Filing Location for Petitions for More Effective Processing

Posted on by

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has changed the location for the filing of the following petitions:

  • I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiancé
  • I-130, Petition for Alien Relative
  • I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Relative
  • I-526, Immigrant Petition by Alien  


  • I-539, Application to Extend/Change

Nonimmigrant Status 

  • I-817, Application for Family Unity Benefits

Previously, these forms have been filed at Service Centers but now they will be filed in Lockboxes.  This change of filing location is intended to increase the speed and efficiency of processing applications.

If you have just filed any of these petitions at a Service Center, there is no need to worry.  USCIS will forward  misproperly filed applications to the correct Lockboxes from now until September 17, 2010. If an application is sent to a Service Center after September 17, 2010, USCIS will then send it back to the petitioner to resend to the correct facility.

To quickly access these new filing locations, you can visit, to look on our resource page – which has the latest information – or simply come to Beach-Oswald Immigration Law Associates, PC, where we will take care of filing your applications for you.
