So, I'm a complete idiot

Well, not really. I have very strong opinions as to the orderliness and accuracy of USCIS's website, however.

I just realized that I sent my I-129F to the TSC - which apparently no longer accepts them. I went by the form where you put in your ZIP code and it tells you which center to apply for. Going further, I found a page which specifically listed the I-129F's mailing address for the TSC. I've now discovered that that is no longer accurate.

So . . . has anyone else done this in error before? Will they simply send it back, forward it to the correct center or what?

At least if they send the whole thing back, I can correct the passport photo issue. However, the address at the top of my fiance's letter of intent is that of the TSC. Should I White-Out that part and put the correct address, or will it compromise the letter to alter it in any way?

:wacko:Aww, I'm sorry!

Don't be so hard on yourself (F)

They may send the package back, they may forward it to the correct center...I've seen both happen.

I don't know if calling would help or what....

I'm sure someone who has been in this situation will give you some more guidance.

Best of luck hon.

They won't send the package back. You're just looking at a delay of a week or two while they forward it to California or Vermont. I suggest you use the guides here, for your further preparation as the process continues.

Don't worry about it. Many people have made errors like this and worse - no, I am not going to confess! :rolleyes: Either way they handle the packet, send it back or forward to the correct center - you are not going to lose more than a week or two. The address on the letter of intent doesn't matter - our letters just said To Whomsoever and no addresses. Relax and Good Luck

In my case I sent the petition to the correct service center (CSC) and THEY somehow got it in with a pile of I-130's and sent it to Chicago Lock Box. The Chicago location correctly recognized it as an I-129 F. Did they just send it back to CSC? NO!!! They sent the application back to my attorney and issued me a rejection notice because it was out of their jurisdiction. No Dah! (Dah English not Russian). That process took form September 20, 2007 until December22, 2007. I re-filed in January and have since been trying to get my petition put back where it would have been without the USCIS mistake. Just yesterday I finally convinced a Customer Service Rep at the National Service Center that I qualified for an Expedited Request due to USCIS error. Now I'm supposed to hear the disposition of my request within 10 days.

I've found that if you get someone at the National Service Center that isn't helpful to keep calling back until you do. You would think that they all operate under the same policies and guidelines but that must not be the case.

Anyway, I wish you much better luck than I had.

God's Blessing on you and your future spouse!

Pushbrk, I've seen some people have their package sent back to them.

Just curious how this went for SterlingGirl, as I made the same mistake when I sent it out. The package just got delivered today at 5am, so I'm hoping the next thing I get is an NAO1 as opposed to the whole package back...!
