which USCIS center has jurisdiction over Washington State?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a brand new member here and I am ready to file my I-129 petition but before i do i want to be absolutely sure of a few things:

i have two related questions.

1. I notice on the example letter of intent to marry includes the address of filing location. Is this address the USCIS Dallas lockbox or is it the address of the USCIS center that has jurisdiction over your state?

2. I am in Washington State and i believe the Nebraska Service center has jurisdiction over my state. Can someone confirm this for me?

I am a brand new member here and I am ready to file my I-129 petition but before i do i want to be absolutely sure of a few things:

1. I notice on the example letter of intent to marry includes the address of filing location. Is this address the USCIS Dallas lockbox or is it the address of the USCIS center that has jurisdiction over your state? The address is of little actual consequence, what is is important is that each of you provide an original, signed letter with your original petition. (We addressed ours to the Dallas lockbox location.)

2. I am in Washington State and i believe the Nebraska Service center has jurisdiction over my state. Can someone confirm this for me? All of the I-129F petitions are sent to the Dallas Lockbox, and then sorted out to either the California Service Center (WAC) or Vermont Service Center (EAC) for adjudication. They are the only two centers that adjudicate I-129F K-1 petitions.

Welcome to the forum from a fellow Washingtonian.good.gif

After the petition is accepted by USCIS, you will receive your Form I-797c (NOA1) receipt. The receipt number will have a three letter prefix (likely WAC), followed by a group of numbers. Set up an online account with USCIS to check on the status of your petition,….. and then the patience-building sessions begin….. ClockWatch2.gif

Take the opportunity to acquaint yourself with the great information on this site, by accessing the GUIDES section at the top of the forum page.

Good luck.

1. On letter of intent we put the address of the Service Center, in our case California Service center. I think it's ok, if you put the lockbox address on it. Don't think it's such a big deal which one of those two you write on the letter of intent

2. Only 2 centers process I-129f now. California and Vermont. If you live in Washington state then it'll be routed to California Service Center after it arrives at the Lockbox in Texas.

address has 0 importance, you are not mailing that but including it with your package, I actually didn't even have address on mine just the full name of dhs uscis, and I think even that wouldn't matter
