Check has old address

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I am almost done with the process. Still have 2-3 questions.

one of them -

We just moved to Los Angeles. And my wife's check has old address (bcz we got married 7-8 months back and had enough checks so never thought of ordering with new address)

Is that ok if I use her check (with old address) to pay the filing fees for I-130 and I-485?

2nd question:

I am going to send the packet tot Chicago Lockbox. The part I dont understand was

"Note the PO Box address for your filing type: Form I-130 with Form I-485"

Where should I write this "Form I-130 with Form I-485" while writing the Address?

Please let me know.

For your 1st question: You can definitely use your wife's check with old address on it. No problem. We did same thing.

For your 2nd question: You can leave that note on the outside of your big package. When you send the package, the mail office probably will put another envelope outside yours. Tell the address where you want to mail to, the rest is their job.

Thanks for your quick reply.

What you guys had written as MEMO on Check? (I-130 Filing fee OR I-130 Processing Fee?)

Also,

The address I'll be using is

USCIS

P.O. Box 805887

Chicago, IL 60680-4120

Should I write

USCIS

Attn: Form I-130 with Form I-485

P.O. Box 805887

Chicago, IL 60680-4120

Or

This is enough

USCIS

P.O. Box 805887

Chicago, IL 60680-4120

thanks,
