Change in Address for sending I-129F

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

FYI, USCIS has put out new instructions for the I-129F.... They all need to be sent to the Dallas Lockbox now:

File Form I-129F at the USCIS Dallas Lockbox facility.

For U.S. Postal Service:

USCIS P.O. Box 660151 Dallas, TX 75266

For Express mail and courier deliveries:

USCIS Attn: I-129F 2501 South State Highway 121 Business Suite 400 Lewisville, TX 75067

And you can sign up for e-notification with the petition. :thumbs:

Hope this helps!

Seriously? Of course they change it the very day that I send mine off to the VSC. I foolishly thought that since I checked YESTERDAY, I had the most updated instructions. I obviously didn't see this in time, will they automatically redirect my package or will they send it back? :wacko:

Oh man, I wish i would have seen this before I took the package to the Post Office today! Does anyone know if they're going to forward them if they are sent to the original addresses? or will they just send them back to be re-sent?

And it looks like I'm not the only one who didn't see this, haha

From what I understand they've been forwarding them to Texas recently anyway, so there is a good chance that if you sent it yesterday or today it will still be forwarded.

The instructions indicate that they will forward new filings to Texas for 45 days and then they will start returning them to the petitioners if the petitioner sends them to either CSC or VSC directly.

oh phew! good to know, I would have been super bummed if they'd sent it back to me! It's pretty silly though, this means my package is going from MA -> VT -> TX -> VT ...whats the point of the middle man?? :huh:

It is a bit silly, but I think they were already sending them to Texas anyway? That seems to be the experience of a lot of people lately, anyway.

"Great". :P And I've just seen the I-129F is a new one. I don't think something changed on the form, but for our peace of mind we're going to complete the new one.

I think it's a good thing, though. Because some people have sent their petitions to VSC, per example, and they were so busy, they had to forward some of the petitions to TX, as far as I know. Maybe it will take less to process this way, if they go directly to Dallas. :P Maybe... :)

They have been doing the intake in TX since mid-may. They start the processing down there then send the packets back to either CSC or VSC. When that first started happening in May, Vermont really piked up the speed of approvals, so all in all, it looks like a good change.
