hi everyone. i have a question about the address of where to file all the forms i listed above to. can anyone help me with that? i've heard that i can just put them together and send them to one address but i'm not sure of the correct address one. i now live in utah.

another question is that in I-765, question no.16, i don't know of what to fill in the blanket. i came to the states in march as an exchange student (J1 2-year rule does not apply) and i got married to my us husband in june. so at this point, should i fill in question no.16 as (a)(9)????

thanks!!!!

If you download the forms the attached instructions will have the address to mail. It depends on your geographic location within the USA, and the type of petition you are filing.

Improved USCIS Form G-325A (Biographic Information)

Form field input font changed to allow entry of dates in the specified format and to provide more space for addresses and employment history. This is the 6/12/09 version of the form; the current version is 8/8/11, but previous versions are accepted per the USCIS forms page.

The address mentioned above is the correct address. You are category (c )(9) which I found under 7A in the instructions since you will be filing form I-485 for adjustment of status concurrently. That was my husband's filing status for that question and he too came on a J1 visa and is married to a US citizen (me!) :thumbs:

As for the number of passport photos, each form you are filing will list in the instructions what "Initial Evidence" you need to file with the form and that would listed there.

For the EAD (765) it's 2 photos but check the other forms' instructions for the other requirements. I believe we sent in 7 total for my husband and 2 for me (USC). But double check on that!
