Hi VJ,

I was just wondering where they enter initial info into their computer.

Do they open our I-130 and enter info into their computer at Chicago location and then

send it to CSC?

Thanks.

6. What is the step-by-step intake process that occurs once a petition is received at a Lockbox Facility?

Applications arriving at the Lockbox go through the following intake process:

  • Envelopes are opened by the Lockbox provider.
  • Contents of the envelope are placed in a specified order based to facilitate running business requirements against each application.
  • Applications are scanned by the Lockbox provider; both sides of a document are scanned. At this point, USCIS stops using the paper applications and all processing from here on is electronic.
  • The electronic transactions go to data verification where the Lockbox provider ensures that the data has been correctly captured by the scanners. Data deemed critical to processing based on business requirements is double checked by the Lockbox provider to ensure that it has been entered correctly.
  • The electronic transactions are processed by the system business logic. The system logic, based on the business requirements, ensures that all critical data is present; for some applications, applies minimal prima fascia eligibility to file criteria; ensures that the application has been signed; and that the correct fee has bee attached.
  • If the applications have been completed correctly and the correct fees attached, the applications will be accepted.
  • If the applications have not been completed correctly or the incorrect fee has been attached, then based on business requirements, the applications may go to the Lockbox provider to try to resolve; may go to the USCIS Case Resolution Unit (CRU) to try to resolve; or may be rejected without any further review. Note that some applications, defective or not, will, by business requirement, go to the USCIS CRU for review.
  • If the applications are accepted, the applicant and representative (if any) are mailed receipt notices and the paper applications are sent to the appropriate service center for further processing.
  • If the applications are rejected, the applicant (and representatives (if any) are sent rejection notices and all of the documents sent by the applicants are returned to the applicants, including the payments.
  • We are exploring methodologies to identify applications that have been rejected more than once.

The part that says

"Applications are scanned by the Lockbox provider; both sides of a document are scanned. At this point, USCIS stops using the paper applications and all processing from here on is electronic."

Does this mean they scan only the forms? or everything, including the evidence (affidavits,photos). Do the actual centers work on the actual folder we send, or do they as well work on the electronic versions?

They scan everything. They use the electronic versions, unless there is a reason to refer back to the originals.

How about this one:

If the applications are accepted, the applicant and representative (if any) are mailed receipt notices and the paper applications are sent to the appropriate service center for further processing.

You'll probably get a chance to verify this. Last time I went to an interview was with my wife for Adjustment of Status from K-1 in early 2008. The same paper application and all the evidence I sent to the USCIS lockbox was on the desk in front of the IO and he reviewed that in front of me and my wife, making notations on the very same I-485 that I printed and sent in. There were no other marks on that form, other than the ones he made while we were there.

The scanning of forms called OCR - optical character recognition. That is why it is important to write capital letters or if possible, type it as much as possible.

All the supporting documents (including the say I130) are scanned and attached to the file, it is given a queue number for the service center..
